They can be isolated from throat and grow in cell culture (PMK) , shell vial culture,
FA stain
For identification- Hemadsorption Parainfluenza viruses
Cause upper respiratory infections in adults pneumonia is rare
Causes respiratory infection including pneumonia in children
There are 4 serotypes types of parainfluenza viruses Parainfluenza viruses Picture: Highly-magnified, digitally-colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) depicted numbers of virions from a Novel Flu H1N1 isolate; http://www. phil.cdc.gov Picture: This transmission electron micrograph (TEM) depicts numbers of influenza A virions while in their early passage growth phase.
http://www. phil.cdc.gov Influenza infection and replication is a multi-step process, which progress as under:
First, the virus bind to the cell and enters into it
Then deliver its genome to a site where it can produce new copies of viral proteins and RNA
Assemble these components into new viral particles, and, last, exit the host cell Influenza virus Common cold virus
Mode of transmission- respiratory secretions
More than 100 serotype
Grow in cell culture
Grow best at lower temperature (30C)
Treatment and prevention
Supportive and avoid the contact with respiratory secretions Rhinovirus Picture: Electron micrograph of the poliovirus, a species of Enterovirus, which is a Genus in the family of Picornaviridae, and is an RNA virus. http://www. phil.cdc.gov The isolate may be further typed by molecular assays.
Serology - this is not widely used as virus tissue culture techniques are so efficient. Neutralization tests, in which acute and convalescent sera are mixed with known concentrations of laboratory strains of poliovirus and then absorbed onto monolayers of cell cultures, are the most efficient serological test system available. Poliovirus-contd. Major Diseases Associated with Enterovirus- Contd. Group Major Diseases Associated with Enterovirus
Can probably be transmitted in the same way as the viruses causing the common cold e.g. by hand contact with secretions and autoinoculation into the mouth, nose, or eyes Enterovirus contd. Enteroviruses enters into the human body through alimentary canal
Viral replication takes place in the cell linings of the alimentary tract
For several enteroviruses, a viraemic phase is followed by involvement of target organs e.g. the spinal cord, brain, meninges, myocardium or skin.
Incubation periods vary from 2 to 40 days Enterovirus contd.
They are Single stranded (ss) RNA, replicates in the cytoplasm of the cells
They are non-enveloped, icosahedral capsid
Transmitted through fecal- oral contact
In animals, it can cause cancer
There are more than 70 Human serotypes have been isolated Enteroviruses
Virus: Hepatitis A virus
Virus: Rhinovirus (common cold virus)
Marburg or Ebola viruses causes severe type of hemorrhagic fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, priteinuria, myalgia, pharyngitis, and conjunctivitis.
Severe symptoms include jaundice, inflammation of the pancreas, severe weight loss, delirium, shock, liver failure, and multi-organ dysfunction. Marburg & Ebola viruses Mode of transmission is probably direct contact or aerosol
Disease – Common cold, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and possibly gastroenteritis mainly in children
Lab diagnosis- Electron microscopy and RT- PCR
Treatment is supportive Coronaviruses Quick Review-
Hepatitis A Virus (RNA Virus)
Family – Picornaviridae
Hepatitis C Virus (RNA Virus)
Family – Flaviviridae
Hepatitis B Virus (DNA Virus)
Family - Hepadnaviridae Virus associated with Hepatitis Single stranded (ss) RNA
Icosahedral symmetry
The name "Yellow Fever" is due to the ensuing jaundice that affects some patients.
The disease is transmitted by arthropod vector such as the Aedes aegypti or Haemagogus spp. mosquito. Mode of transmission
Blood and blood product exposure, sexual contact, and perinatal exposure
Most disease in humans caused by HIV-1, infected cells include CD4 (helper) T lymphocytes, monocytes, and some cells of central nervous system; asymptomatic infection, acute flu-like disease, AIDS, and associated infections and malignancies Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 & 2
Contd. Retroviruses:
They are made up of single stranded (SS) RNA
Their replication process occur in nucleus and cytoplasm
All retroviruses are unique as they have enzyme reverse transcriptase, which allows the viral RNA genome to replicate into DNA and then RNA, instead of directly into RNA Retroviridae-(Retroviruses)
HIV 1 & 2, HTLV 1 & 2 Lab diagnosis
Cell culture - It produces typical CPE with a syncytial appearance
Rapid testing available; ELISA & Immunofluroscence
Confirmatory test involves monoclonal antibody
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) Respiratory synctial virus (RSV)
ssRNA enveloped virus, 120 - 300 nm in size
RSV, is a respiratory virus that infects the lungs and breathing passages.
Causes pneumonia and bronchiolitis in infants
Upper respiratory infection in children Respiratory Synctial Virus Parainfluenza viruses
Single stranded RNA
Helocal capsid, enveloped Parainfluenza
Influenza viruses can change in two different ways:
Antigenic drift – small and
Antigenic shift – large
The influenza A virus H1N1 emerged in 2009 caused the first global influenza pandemic in more than 40 years. Influenza viruses
Influenza viruses- They are RNA viruses,commonly known as flu viruses
Can replicate only in the living cells
Types of Influenza viruses- There are 3 types based on antigenic groups:
Influenzavirus A
Influenzavirus B
Influenzavirus C
Influenza Viruses Mode of transmission- Fecal oral route
Incubation period- short, sudden onset
Disease – Hepatitis
Lab detection – Serology method
Treatment and prevention
Supportive and Vaccine Hepatitis A virus Laboratory Diagnosis
Virus isolation - the CSF usually show the changes typical for that of viral meningitis with lymphocytosis and a high protein level.
Poliovirus is readily isolated from throat swabs, feces, or rectal swabs by inoculation into cell culture.
The CPE produced can be neutralized by type specific sera which forms the basis for identification. Poliovirus- contd. 3 serotypes of poliovirus with no common poliovirus antigen. They have identical physical properties and their base sequences share 36 - 52% homology. Humans are the only natural hosts for polioviruses Enterovirus- contd. Classification of Enteroviruses
Human enterovirus serotypes are distinguished on the basis of homotypic seroneutralization and show wide range of biological and pathogenic properties.
These viruses are divided into 5 categories:
Polioviruse: have 3 main types
Coxsackievirus Group A: have 23 types
Coxsackievirus Group B: have 6 types
Echovirus: have 31 types
