Human rhinoviruses (HRV) have been shown to be the major causative agent for mild respiratory infections, but also associated with more serious diseases, such as acute otitis media and pneumonia in children, and asthma. Despite the economical and medical importance of HRV, little is known about the circulation and genetic diversity of HRV during a given season. The aim of this study was to genetically characterize HRV strains causing acute respiratory infections in a cohort of small children… CONTINUE READING
