Human Bocavirus (HBoV) has been identified from feces and respiratory samples from cases of both acute gastroenteritis and respiratory illness as well as in asymptomatic individuals.
Background: So far, many studies have shown that Human Bocavirus ( HBoV) is the main pathogen of the respiratory tract.
In studies related with respiratory tract infections, influenza A, influenza B, rhinovirus (RV), respiratory syncitial virus (RSV), coronavirus (CV), parainfluenza virus (PIV) and human metapneumovirus (HMPV) and human bocavirus (HBOV) which have been recently identifed are among the viruses commonly found as causative agents (5-7).
This volume collects 28 cases of emerging infectious diseases: severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome associated with a novel bunyavirus, Bas-Congo virus, hantavirus, Lassa fever, Alkhurma hemorrhagic fever, Rift Valley fever, Lujo virus hemorrhagic fever, Toscana virus, Ebola virus, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, phlebotomus fever-sandfly fever, chikungunya fever, Nipah virus disease, Middle East respiratory syndrome-coronavirus infection, human bocavirus, norovirus gastroenteritis, enterohemorrhagic E.
The most common respiratory virus was rhinovirus, followed by human bocavirus, respiratory syncytial virus, enterovirus, human metapneumovirus, influenza A/B virus, adenovirus, and parainfluenza 1-3 virus.
The sixth edition of this popular and comprehensive reference has been thoroughly revised and offers extensive updates including new chapters on human bocavirus and mimiviruses, as well as expanded chapters on metapneumovirus, coronaviruses, and monkeypox.
Recently discovered viruses include the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus, human bocavirus, and human metapneumovirus.
They detected the virus--provisionally named human bocavirus (HBoV)--through a rapid new system for large-scale molecular virus screening of clinical samples without the need for cultures and with minimal hands-on effort.
Novel Human Bocavirus in Children with Acute Respiratory Tract Infection
Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and PCR assays were performed for detection of PIV Types 1–4, human bocavirus, and WU and KI polyomaviruses.
