The immune response to human metapneumovirus is associated with aberrant immunity and impaired virus clearance in BALB/c mice.

Abstract

Human metapneumovirus (HMPV), recently identified in isolates from children hospitalized with acute respiratory tract illness, is associated with clinical diagnosis of pneumonia, asthma exacerbation, and acute bronchiolitis in young children. HMPV has been shown to cocirculate with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and mediate clinical disease features… (More)
