ZusammenfassungIm Laufe des Lebens nehmen bei Erwachsenen die Immunfunktionen, besonders die des adaptiven Immunsystems, ab.Deshalb führen respiratorische Virusinfektionen bei gesunden jungen Erwachsenen meist zu relativ milden Erkrankungen der oberen Atemwege, wohingegen ältere und gebrechliche Menschen häufig schwere Erkrankungen der tiefen Atemwege entwickeln. Liegen chronische kardiopulmonale Erkrankungen oder Asthma vor, sind bei Exazerbationen häufig respiratorische Viren beteiligt, auch… Expand

The use of vaccines directed against the influenza virus and S. pneumoniae appears to have made an impact on the degree of morbidity and mortality, and perhaps the incidence, of community-acquired pneumonia. Expand
Current research on respiratory viral infections: Fourth International Symposium
The spectrum of discussion ranged from basic virology and pathogenesis to epidemiology, immunology, and management strategies, with particular attention to vaccines, antivirals, and economic issues. Expand

The approved neuraminidase inhibitors for influenzaviruses and the nonapproved capsid inhibitors of rhinoviruses may be useful in treating high-risk individuals and the inactivated influenza vaccine has been shown to benefit healthy adults and to be safe in asthmatic adults and children. Expand
Diagnosis of Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection: Comparison of Reverse Transcription-PCR to Viral Culture and Serology in Adults with Respiratory Illness
RT-PCR is an excellent method for the diagnosis of acute RSV infection in adults and its sensitivity, specificity, and sensitivity to viral culture and antigen detection are indicated. Expand

This perspective will review clinically relevant infections in the elderly, focusing on influenza and influenza virus vaccination and how chronic illness contributes to increased risk and severity of infection and/or failed vaccine response. Expand
Respiratory viruses in exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease requiring hospitalisation: a case-control study
It is indicated that nasal lavage probably has no additional diagnostic value to induced sputum in cross-sectional studies on hospitalised patients with AE-COPD and that the role of viral infection in these patients is still underestimated. Expand
The adjuvanted influenza vaccines with novel adjuvants: experience with the MF59-adjuvanted vaccine.
The addition of MF59 to subunit influenza vaccines enhances significantly the immune response in elderly subjects without causing clinically important changes in the safety profile of the influenza vaccine. Expand
Comparison of three methods for respiratory virus detection between induced sputum and nasopharyngeal aspirate specimens in acute asthma.
It is concluded that induced sputum specimens are feasible for detection of viral respiratory tract infections by RT-PCR during acute exacerbations of asthma. Expand
Spectrum of Clinical Illness in Hospitalized Patients with “Common Cold” Virus Infections
Rhinovirus and coronavirus infections in hospitalized patients were associated with lower respiratory tract illnesses in all age groups. Expand
