Part Description

LP412157-2   Adenovirus A+B+C+D+E
Adenoviruses, medium-sized (90-100 nm), non-enveloped icosohedral viruses with double-stranded DNA, have over 50 immunologically distinct types that cause infections in humans. Adenoviruses usually cause respiratory illness with symptoms ranging from the common cold to pneumonia, croup, and bronchitis. Adenoviruses can cause other illnesses such as gastroenteritis, conjunctivitis, cystitis, and less commonly, neurological disease. Infants and individuals with weakened immune systems are at high risk for severe complications of adenovirus infection and adenoviruses commonly cause acute respiratory illness in military recruits. Some asymptomatic people infected with adenoviruses have ongoing infections in their tonsils, adenoids, and intestines and can shed the virus for months or years. The virus can persist outside the body for long periods. Adenovirus infections can be detected using antigen detection, polymerase chain reaction assay, virus isolation, and serology. Typing is usually done by hemagglutination-inhibition and/or neutralization with type-specific antisera or by molecular methods. As of October 2014 there is no adenovirus vaccine for the general public, however an oral vaccine against types 4 and 7 was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in March 2011 for U.S. military personnel. The vaccine is recommended by the U.S. Department of Defense for military recruits entering basic training in order to prevent acute respiratory disease. Most adenovirus infections are mild and typically require only treatment of symptoms.[CDC: Adenovirus] There are seven subgroups or species of adenovirus labeled A through G. The subgroups of adenovirus infect certain areas of the body. Subgroups A and F are usually found in the gastrointestinal tract. Subgroups B, C and E tend to infect the respiratory tract. Subgroup D is the cause of epidemic kerato-conjunctivitis.[http://journals.lww.com/pidj/Documents/Adenovirus%20ESPID%20June%2012.pdf]Subgroup G causes gastroenteritis. The DNA homology between the subgroups is less than 20%. [PMID: 24678403] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
