This article lists the changes to virus taxonomy approved and ratified by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses in February 2018. A total of 451 species, 69 genera, 11 subfamilies, 9 families and one new order were added to the taxonomy. The current totals at each taxonomic level now stand at 9 orders, 131 families, 46 subfamilies, 803 genera and 4853 species. A change was made to the International Code of Virus Classification and Nomenclature to allow the use of the names of people in taxon names under appropriate circumstances. An updated Master Species List incorporating the approved changes was released in March 2018 ( https://talk.ictvonline.org/taxonomy/ ).

Myxomycetes is one of the largest groups of protists belonging to Amoebozoa, with ca 1,000 species recognised and more than 4,000 names in use. Historically, myxomycetes were considered fungi or proto...
Inconsistencies in the nomenclature of structures of the frontal sinus have impeded the development of a validated "reference standard" classification system that surgeons can reliably agree upon. The...
Taxonomy is an organizing principle of biology and is ideally based on evolutionary relationships among organisms. Development of a robust bacterial taxonomy has been hindered by an inability to obtai...
The family Plasmaviridae includes bacterial viruses with slightly pleomorphic, enveloped virions with a diameter of 50-125 nm. Virions contain infectious, circular, supercoiled dsDNA molecule(s) of ...
Classification of Ventricular Septal Defects for the Eleventh Iteration of the International Classification of Diseases - Striving for Consensus: A report from the International Society for Nomenclature of Paediatric and Congenital Heart Disease.
The definition and classification of ventricular septal defects have been fraught with controversy. The International Society for Nomenclature of Paediatric and Congenital Heart Disease is a group of ...
Code Stroke is a system for the rapid identification, pre-notification and transport of acute ischemic stroke patients. The objective of this study was to define quality indicators and to ...
This study aimed to retrospectively examine patients evaluated by the Code Blue team on a Code Blue call in our hospital between 2016-2017. Primary outcome: an examination of the survival...
Providing high quality care for dying patients and their families is very important. One way one can assess the care provided is to ask bereaved relatives to complete a questionnaire after...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether a new standardized language for categorizing suicidal and self-injury related thoughts and behaviors can be readily adopted for use by ment...
In this project, we derive survival risk ratios (SRR) based on International Classification of Disease version 10 (ICD-10) injury codes to validate the ICD Injury Severity Score (ICISS) in...
The World Health Organization's classification categories of health and health-related domains. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) consists of two lists: a list of body functions and structure, and a list of domains of activity and participation. The ICF also includes a list of environmental factors.
System established by the World Health Organization and the International Committee on Thrombosis and Hemostasis for monitoring and reporting blood coagulation tests. Under this system, results are standardized using the International Sensitivity Index for the particular test reagent/instrument combination used.
An international organization whose members include most of the sovereign nations of the world with headquarters in New York City. The primary objectives of the organization are to maintain peace and security and to achieve international cooperation in solving international economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian problems.
Large transmembrane, polymorphic glycoproteins noncovalently associated with nonpolymorphic beta 2-microglobulin. In humans, three structural genes on chromosome 6 code for the HLA-A; HLA-B and HLA-C antigens. In mice, three genes named K, D, and L on chromosome 17 code for the H-2 antigens. Class I antigens are found on most nucleated cells and are generally detected by their reactivity with alloantisera. These antigens are recognized during graft rejection and restrict cell-mediated lysis of virus-infected cells. They are primarily associated with rheumatologic diseases and certain malignant disorders.
International organizations which provide health-related or other cooperative services.
