Community- and hospital-acquired respiratory syncytial virus infections in Chile
Nasopharyngeal aspirates were obtained on admission from 614 patients younger than 2 years of age who were hospitalized in a ward for acute respiratory infections from June 1988 through October, 1989, in Santiago, Chile. ...

Down's syndrome is a risk factor for severe lower respiratory tract infection due to respiratory syncytial virus
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2016)
©2016 Foundation Acta Pædiatrica. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd Aim: Previous studies have suggested that Down's syndrome is an independent risk factor for severe respiratory infection due to respiratory syncytial ...
Intravenous palivizumab in respiratory syncytial virus infection after hematopoietic stem cell transplant in children
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection can cause lower respiratory tract disease and mortality in pediatric hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients. We report two children who underwent HSCT and developed ...
Respiratory syncytial virus detection by dot blot hybridization with a nonradioactive synthetic oligo deoxynucleotide probe
A synthetic oligodeoxynucleotide corresponding to a region of the nucleocapside gene (N) of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), was used as a DNA probe to develop a nonradioactive hybridization assay for the detection of ...
Impaired immune response in severe human lower tract respiratory infection by respiratory syncytial virus
(Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, 2009)
Background: Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a major cause of acute lower respiratory infection in infants. The immune response plays a leading role in the severity of the disease. We hypothesized that severe RSV disease ...

© 2017 by the authors. Licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.The clinical impact of viral factors (types and viral loads) during respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection is still controversial, especially regarding newly ...
Treatment of respiratory syncytial virus infection with vitamin A: A randomized, placebo-controlled trial in Santiago, Chile
Background. Treatment with high dose vitamin A reduces complications and duration of hospitalization for children with measles. In respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection, as with measles, low serum vitamin A concentrations ...

Respiratory syncytial virus infection and recurrent wheezing in Chilean infants: A genetic background?
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection has been associated to recurrent wheezing, but pathogenic mechanisms are unclear. Interleukin-4/Interleukin-13 (IL-4/IL-13) pathway is involved in both conditions. A common ...
