Detection of human metapneumovirus and respiratory syncytial virus by duplex real-time RT-PCR assay in comparison with direct fluorescent assay.


Human respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV) and human metapneumovirus (hMPV) are important respiratory pathogens of small children and adults. The present study aimed to design a sensitive real-time RT-PCR assay for the detection of hRSV and hMPV in comparison with direct fluorescent assay (DFA) and to determine the incidence of hMPV and hRSV as causative… (More)
