The present study was undertaken in an attempt to recover new cytopathogenic agents from infants with severe lower respiratory illness (bronchopneumonia, bronchiolitis, and laryngotracheobronchitis) and to assess their etiologic significance in this disease complex. During the course of these investigations, two similar viruses were recovered -which were demonstrated to be indistinguishable from an agent associated with an outbreak of coryza in chimpanzees (CCA virus) studied by Morris, Blount…

Respiratory Syncytial Virus
TLDR
RSV disease is seldom fatal in infants, but can be associated with severe illness in children with underlying problems such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia (MacDonald et al., 1982).
Life-Threatening RSV Infections in Children
During the middle of the 20th century, Chanock and co-workers recovered an cytopathogenic agent from lung secretions of young infants with lower respiratory tract disease (LRTD). This agent was found
A SYNCYTIAL VIRUS ASSOCIATED WITH EPIDEMIC DISEASE OF THE LOWER RESPIRATORY TRACT IN INFANTS AND YOUNG CHILDREN
TLDR
There were signiflcant rising antibody levels in many patients who failed to yield virus from throat swabs; this suggests that these, too, were parainfluenza virus infections.
A Respiratory syncytial virus of bovine origin
TLDR
Evidence of the bovine origin of both strains was brought by the sero-conversions displayed by the cattle under study in neutralization and complement fixation tests and by some biological traits of the virus as well.
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit
TLDR
It was observed that almost all children have been infected by RSV by the age of two years, and epidemiological research carried out since its discovery has designated RSV as the most important causative agent of viral lower respiratory tract disease.
New viruses observed in children with respiratory diseases.
TLDR
Serologic data suggest that the contribution of these agents to childhood respiratory illnesses may be substantial, and preliminary clinical and epidemiological observations indicated that these agents might be responsible for a proportion of the common acute respiratory illnesses in children.
Respiratory syncytial virus and parainfluenza virus.
  • C. Hall
  • Biology, Medicine

  • 2001
TLDR
RSV and human parainfluenza virus types 1, 2, 3, and 4 have been known primarily as respiratory pathogens in young children but are now recognized as important pathogens in adults as well.
Isolation of the respiratory syncytial virus from a patient with pneumonia, by Daniel S. Rowe, MD, and Richard H. Michaels, MD, Pediatrics, 1960;26:623-629.
TLDR
A virus with the characteristics of the respiratory syncytial virus was isolated from the throat of a 6-month-old infant with pneumonia, indicating that the pneumonia was accompanied by infection with this virus.
IV. Respiratory Syncytial Virus
TLDR
The present report will summarize the knowledge of the respiratory syncytial (RS) virus, which appears to be the most important single cause of such illness.
Epidemic bronchiolitis and pneumonitis related to respiratory syncytial virus.
TLDR
An epidemic of acute respiratory disease in infants and children occurring during January, February, and March, 1961, and most probably due to respiratory syncytial (RS) virus is described.

TLDR
A number of human beings, particularly adolescents and young adults, have antibodies in their sera directed against the coryza agent suggesting that these individuals have experienced infection with the new agent or one closely related to it.

TLDR
The high incidence of infection with this new virus in one group of croup patients suggests that it may be at least one of the etiologic agents of this clinical syndrome, but more extensive control studies will be necessary to establish a specific etuologic association.

The presumption that this group of agents isolated in cultures of human or simian renal cells is composed of representatives of the viral species responsible for measles is supported.

TLDR
Cytolysis was specifically prevented by human mumps convalescent and post-vaccination sera but not, or to a lesser extent, by sera taken during the acute stage of the disease or prior to immunization.

TLDR
It seemed desirable to find other cells in which the virus may be propagated since human kidneys are not readily available and monkey kidney cells, although susceptible, frequently carry a latent agent which may cause lesions similar to those of measles virus.
