Avatar m tn RSV ( Respiratory synctial virus) is an antibody test that detects antibodies against RSV virus thats related to a respiratory infection. Lets wait till other experts comment on your query.
Avatar m tn The findings provide important clues to how to develop a safe, effective vaccine against respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), the main cause of wintertime hospital stays among babies and young children worldwide, Dr. Fernando P. Polack, the lead researcher on the study, told Reuters Health.

Avatar m tn Dear Laura Lee, Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a virus that can cause significant pulmonary as well as cardiac damage. Without having further information about your son, I can't say exactly what happened with him. I can say that myocarditis, which in children is typically due to a viral infection, causes damage to the heart most likely from both the virus itself as well as the body's immune response.
Avatar f tn My 11 week has rsv .. He was full term .. Has any other mother had this in a infant ..
Avatar f tn Hi, respiratory syncytial virus is a very common virus that causes cold-like symptoms, but can lead to breathing difficulties. Those who are more prone to develop serious respiratory infections as a result of RSV include premature babies and those born with heart or lung problems. Regards.
593530 tn?1263847957 I brought Brody to his pediatrician last week because he was very congested. After a nose swab was tested it was determined that he has RSV. Since it's a virus it can't be treated with antibiotics, so she instructed me to get a cool mist humidifier and keep his nasal pasages clear by using saline solution. The only symptom he's had is the congestion. There's no fever, coughing, mucous coming out, etc.
Avatar m tn ENTA) announced that it has expanded its research and development programs within the company’s core focus areas of virology and liver disease to include new programs to treat hepatitis B virus (HBV) and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infections. Enanta also announced that the first subject was dosed in a phase 1 clinical study with EDP-494, its cyclophilin inhibitor for the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV).
Avatar n tn Respiratory Syncytical Virus (RSV) is not a 12-week illness. What may have started as RSV may be something else right now. Reactive Airways Disease (RAD) is a state when a child has been wheezing and the cause is not necessarily defined. When this is short term associated with a particular virus, it is RSV. When this lasts for a longer period, it is often called asthma. The medications used most often for the treatment of this problem are bronchodilators (ventolin is one of these) and steroids.
377012 tn?1283965435 Well, for the 2nd time this year dylan has been diagnosed with RSV......i have no idea how he is getting it since none of the other kids around have it....not unless they are carrying the germ home from school....this drives me crazy! he already as really bad indoor/outdoor allergies and asthma...so what next!!!!
Avatar f tn HIV virus is encased in multiple structures that hide it from the host immune system. The viral capsid, protects the virus after it enters a cell and shuttles it to the nucleus, where it completes the process of infection. Anitbodies bind to p24 antigens found on the capsule to make the immune system and any effector cell to recognise and kill hiv virus. The antibody by itself may or may not play a role to destroy the hiv virus without an effector cell.
490418 tn?1209523379 SO HE WAS ADMITTED IMMETIATLY AND FLOWN TO THE NEAREST CITY..THERE HE WAS TESTED (+) FOR RSV, A RESPIRATORY VIRUS, WHICH IS WHERE WE ARE NOW, SO FAR HE IS DOING OK., BUT I CANT HELP BUT WORRY ABOUT HIM. _I NOTICED TODAY THAT HIS RIGHT EYE ( DOESNT OPEN AS MUCH )IS LOWER THAN HIS LEFT. AND I AM WONDERING IF THAT IS A LONG TERM PERMANENT THING, IS HIS EYE GONNA BE LIKE THAT FROM NOW ON? MAYBE BECAUSE WHEN HE WAS TAKEN TO THE ER HIS o2 SATURATION WAS SO LOW???
Avatar n tn My son is going to be 2 months old soon and a couple of days after he was born they told me he has RSV, i have been in and out of the hospital so many times and he dose not seem to be getting any better. I have read everybody stories and How they lost their loved ones and i am so scared that it might happen to my son. Please is there anything that i can do to prevent this from getting worse???

936016 tn?1332765604 These newly infected HIV positive individuals pose an exceptionally high risk of infecting other sexual partners because they are often unaware of the risks they have taken and unaware of the new HIV infection gaining rapid momentum in their body. New HIV infection will take a few weeks to generate often several million copies of HIV virus per ml of blood or semen making these individuals extremely infectious in the initial phase.
Avatar n tn This may be residual airway reactivity from the Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), which is also aggravated by the girls having had Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD). This is not uncommon. It is also not uncommon for this to last a while and be associated with wheezing. I think the approach your family physician has tried is a good one. If this fails, you may consider seeing a specialist.
Avatar n tn But the place where i got tested at told me that some times the virus can be in your body and it may not show up on hiv tests. And also i just got married and i had unprotectd sex with my husband and a 3or 4 days later he said he had a bad head ace and also there was some redness on his chust please Dr let me know is it possibe for me to have hiv even though i have been tested 8 times in the past 2 years?
Avatar f tn 1) it lacks certain protein that airborne virus has (such as the influenza virus) to be able to bind to epithelial cells in the alveolus 2) concentration of hiv virus in air is neglible 3) virus is inactivated and degraded in air, not instantly, but within seconds after it leaves a host cell. it is either inactivated by dryness or uv ray. not much scientific poving have neen done here and drying infected blood and testing for its infectious level does not prove anything much.
Avatar n tn Did they diagnose him with RSV? Usually they will have you neb them, but it's a virus and they don't give an antibiotic right away, so it coud very well be something else, like an infection.
Avatar m tn Dr, thank you for your contribution to this forum.
Avatar f tn The most currently used HIV diagnostics have detected HIV antibodies. But it takes two to eight weeks for a person newly infected with the virus to make detectable antibodies as a sign that the body is working to fight the transmitted virus. The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/ Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome or UNAIDS stated that as of 2008 there are 33.
Avatar n tn The most common cause of bronchiolitis is a virus called respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), most commonly occurring in epidemics in late fall and winter each year. RSV affects almost all infants. Bronchiolitis can be a severe disease, but only about 1% of affected children require hospitalization. Premature infants and infants with underlying heart and lung disease are most at risk for severe, even life-threatening infections.
Avatar f tn You should confirm with your doctor why you have the RSV virus, kidney infections and get your answers on how to prevent any future pleasantry's.
