Rapid Diagnostic Test for Influenza

2014-08-27 03:15:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the performance of the MSD® Influenza Test in detecting influenza A and influenza B in subjects presenting with influenza-like-illness (ILI).

Description

This is a multicenter, prospective study to evaluate the performance of the MSD Influenza Test for the detection and differentiation of influenza A (including A/H1, A/H3, and A/H5 subtypes) and influenza B. Nasal swabs from subjects presenting at the clinical care facility with ILI will be collected and tested on the MSD Influenza Test. Results from the Test will be compared to results obtained from viral culture performed on a second nasal swab at a reference laboratory.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Species of the genus INFLUENZAVIRUS B that cause HUMAN INFLUENZA and other diseases primarily in humans. Antigenic variation is less extensive than in type A viruses (INFLUENZA A VIRUS) and consequently there is no basis for distinct subtypes or variants. Epidemics are less likely than with INFLUENZA A VIRUS and there have been no pandemics. Previously only found in humans, Influenza B virus has been isolated from seals which may constitute the animal reservoir from which humans are exposed.

Membrane glycoproteins from influenza viruses which are involved in hemagglutination, virus attachment, and envelope fusion. Fourteen distinct subtypes of HA glycoproteins and nine of NA glycoproteins have been identified from INFLUENZA A VIRUS; no subtypes have been identified for Influenza B or Influenza C viruses.

Infection of domestic and wild fowl and other BIRDS with INFLUENZA A VIRUS. Avian influenza usually does not sicken birds, but can be highly pathogenic and fatal in domestic POULTRY.

A genus of the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE comprising viruses similar to types A and B but less common, more stable, more homogeneous, and lacking the neuraminidase protein. They have not been associated with epidemics but may cause mild influenza. Influenza C virus is the type species.

A genus in the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE causing influenza and other diseases in humans and animals. It contains many strains as well as antigenic subtypes of the integral membrane proteins hemagglutinin (HEMAGGLUTININS) and NEURAMINIDASE. The type species is INFLUENZA A VIRUS.
