Human metapneumovirus in patients with respiratory tract infection in Kuwait
TLDR
It is suggested that hMPV infection is prevalent in infants and elderly patients with lower respiratory tract infection in Kuwait, and genotype B was more prevalent than genotype A.
Human metapneumovirus and respiratory syncytial virus: subtle differences but comparable severity
TLDR
It is concluded that hMPV is a major pathogen associated with hospitalization of children and with the same severity of illness as RSV but in a slightly older population.
Metapneumovirus Infections and Respiratory Complications
TLDR
The direction of research on therapy for hMPV infection is toward the development of new approaches, and a variety of vaccination strategies are being explored and tested in animal models, however, further studies are required to define the best treatment and prevention strategies.
Human Metapneumovirus: Epidemiology and genotype diversity in children and adult patients with respiratory infection in Córdoba, Argentina
TLDR
It is demonstrated that hMPV circulated among all age patients with respiratory infection during 2011–2013 in Córdoba, contributing to the understanding of this virus, its diagnosis and patient handling in local health-care centers.
Genome-Wide Analysis of Human Metapneumovirus Evolution
TLDR
A genome-wide analysis of the eight genes from one HMPV strain suggests that the five lineages of HMPVs maintain their individual evolutionary dynamics and that recombination and selection forces might work on shaping the genetic diversity of H MPVs.
Experimental infection of adults with recombinant wild-type human metapneumovirus.
TLDR
The rHMPV-SHs virus is infectious and is a suitable parent virus for development of live-attenuated HMPV vaccine candidates, as characterized by infectivity and immunogenicity in healthy adults.
Paramyxoviruses respiratory syncytial virus, parainfluenza virus, and human metapneumovirus infection in pediatric hospitalized patients and climate correlation in a subtropical region of southern China: a 7-year survey
TLDR
The features of paramyxovirus infection in a subtropical region of China and the correlation with meteorological factors are described to assist public health authorities and clinicians in improving strategies for controlling paramyxvirus infection.
Detection of Human Metapneumovirus in Hospitalized Children with Acute Respiratory Tract Infections in Sulaimani Province, Iraq
TLDR
RT-PCR is highly sensitive and specific for the detection of hMPV than antigen detection methods used for the diagnosis of h MPV viruses.
A mini outbreak of human metapneumovirus infection with severe acute respiratory symptoms in a selected group of children presented to a teaching hospital in Sri Lanka
TLDR
Human metapneumovirus was the predominant cause of SARI outbreak (2014) in children presented to the THP, Sri Lanka and 18 (86%) were positive for hMPV, in which 2 were co-infected with RSV and influenza A virus, respectively.

Comparison of Human Metapneumovirus, Respiratory Syncytial Virus and Influenza A Virus Lower Respiratory Tract Infections in Hospitalized Young Children
TLDR
The clinical pattern of HMPV more closely resembles that of RSV than that of influenza A LRI, yet the differences in age, radiographic findings and clinical diagnosis suggest that H MPV pathogenesis may differ from that ofRSV.
Human Metapneumovirus Infection in Young Children Hospitalized With Respiratory Tract Disease
TLDR
HMPV is a frequent cause of RTD in young children and hMPV/RSV coinfection is frequent and could be more severe than a single h MPV or RSV infection.
Impact of human metapneumovirus in childhood: Comparison with respiratory syncytial virus and influenza viruses
TLDR
Results show that hMPV is an emerging cause of acute respiratory infection in childhood, and may have a significant clinical and socioeconomic impact on children and their families.
Isolation and Characterization of Monoclonal Antibodies Which Neutralize Human Metapneumovirus In Vitro and In Vivo
TLDR
The data suggest that a monoclonal antibody could be used prophylactically to prevent lower respiratory tract disease caused by hMPV, and a subset of these antibodies has the ability to neutralize prototypic strains of both the A and B h MPV subgroups in vitro.
High Prevalence of Human Metapneumovirus Infection in Young Children and Genetic Heterogeneity of the Viral Isolates
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the amplified viral genome fragments confirmed the existence and simultaneous circulation within one epidemic season of HMPV isolates belonging to two genetic lineages.

TLDR
The epidemiology and clinical manifestations associated with hMPV have been found to be reminiscent of those of the human respiratory syncytial virus, with most severe respiratory tract infections occurring in infants, elderly subjects, and immunocompromised hosts.
Human Metapneumovirus Infections in Hospitalized Children
TLDR
HMPV is an important cause of illness in young children with a similar, although less severe, clinical presentation to that of HRSV.
Virological features and clinical manifestations associated with human metapneumovirus: a new paramyxovirus responsible for acute respiratory-tract infections in all age groups.
TLDR
The virological features and clinical findings associated with the new human metapneumovirus (HMPV) were examined retrospectively in Canadian patients hospitalized for various respiratory conditions since 1993 and suggest that HMPV can be associated with severe lower-respiratory-tract infections in very young children, the elderly, and immunocompromised patients.
