Access from EThOS:
A total of 500 nasopharyngeal aspirates collected from community based patients in Manchester, UK (North West) with respiratory symptoms between October 2006 and February 2007 were evaluated for the presence of respiratory viruses. Molecular assays used were developed, optimized and evaluated initially using 100 NPA specimens obtained from paediatric patients. The relative frequencies and seasonal distribution of specific viruses were assessed, and virus type was correlated with specific clinical signs and symptoms.
