rhinovirus /rhi·no·vi·rus/ (ri´no-vi″rus) any virus belonging to the genus Rhinovirus.
Rhinovirus /Rhi·no·vi·rus/ (ri´no-vi″rus) a genus of viruses of the family Picornaviridae that infect the upper respiratory tract and cause the common cold. Over 100 antigenically distinct varieties infect humans.
A virus that infects the upper respiratory system and causes the common cold.
Mentioned in: Common Cold
Etymology: Gk, rhis + L, virus, poison
any of about 100 serologically distinct, small ribonucleic acid viruses that cause about 40% of acute respiratory illnesses. Infection is characterized by dry scratchy throat, nasal congestion, malaise, and headache. Fever is minimal. Nasal discharge lasts 2 or 3 days. Children may also develop a cough. Type-specific antibodies may last for 2 to 4 years. The treatment is nonspecific and may include rest, analgesics, antihistamines, and nasal decongestants. Complete recovery is usual. Also called coryza virus. Compare adenovirus, parainfluenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus. See also cold.
any member of a genus of picornaviruses, considered to be etiologically associated with the common cold and certain other upper respiratory ailments. Over 90 antigenically different strains are known to cause the common cold. Called also coryza virus.
n any of about 100 serologically distinct, small ribonucleic acid viruses that cause about 40% of acute respiratory illnesses. Infection is characterized by dry, scratchy throat, nasal congestion, malaise, and headache. Fever is minimal. Nasal discharge lasts 2 or 3 days.
a genus of single-stranded positive sense RNA viruses in the family picornaviridae. They cause common colds in humans and similar diseases in cattle.
a member of the genus Rhinovirus.
some isolates cause nasal discharge, cough, dyspnea and fever. Others are innocuous.
Virology An RNA virus that may cause lower RTIs in immunocompromised Pts and exacerbations of bronchitis and asthma in children; rhinovirus is a small–30 nm, nonenveloped virus with a single-strand RNA genome in an icosahedral capsid; there are ±100 serotypes of RV; RVs belong to the Picornaviridae family, which includes genera Enterovirus–polioviruses, coxsackieviruses, echoviruses, enteroviruses, and Hepatovirus–HAV Clinical Common cold, accompanied by nasopharyngitis, croup, pneumonia; most cases are mild and self-limited Epidemiology Transmitted by aerosol or direct contact, with the nasal mucosa and conjunctiva. See Common cold.
A genus of acid-labile viruses (family Picornaviridae) of worldwide distribution, with a single-stranded positive sense RNA genome, associated with the common cold in humans. There are more than 110 antigenic types, formerly classified as M strains (culturable in rhesus monkey kidney and human cells) and H strains (growing only in cultures of human cells).
Any virus of the genus Rhinovirus.
A genus of acid-labile viruses associated with the common cold. There are more than 110 antigenic types.

common cold virus
Jean-Sebastien Casalegno of the French national flu lab at the University of Lyon said that in late October, rhinovirus fell - at the same time as flu rose.
The researchers' report said: "With 200 viruses capable of causing the common cold, echinacea could have modest effect against rhinovirus but marked effects against others.
Of the 55 samples received from primary care and tested since the end of June, four have tested positive for swine flu and four have tested positive for rhinovirus.
