(Natural News) An epidemiologic study conducted by researchers from America and Nicaragua showed that obesity increases the period needed for a patient to recover. Their research, which was published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases, monitored around 1,700 people from 320 households in Nicaragua for three flu seasons from 2015 to 2017. The participants, which included...

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a major pathogen of acute respiratory tract infection (ARI) in different geographical regions including Saudi Arabia. Numerous hospital-based investigations have revealed the RSV prevalence between 0.2-54% in the paediatric population with ARI/ALRI from Saudi Arabia during 1991-2015. Maximum RSV infections occurred in children less than 1 year of age (51-97%) and male children (51-69%) were more commonly affected than females (31-49%). RSV infections are reported mostly during winter season suggesting seasonal distribution of the virus. Other respiratory viruses reported from this regio...

Conclusions: LPM workers in Chongqing showed low level of knowledge, weak perception of susceptibility to avian influenza and inadequate preventive behaviors. Health education campaigns need to better target the knowledge on transmission routes and potential outbreak threat of avian influenza. More attention should be paid to LPM workers who are younger, less educated, with shorter occupational years and lower personal income.

Authors: Feldman C, Shaddock E Abstract INTRODUCTION: Lower respiratory tract infections (LRTIs) are the leading infectious disease cause of death in the world and the fifth overall cause of death. From an epidemiological point of view, most consider pneumonia, influenza, bronchitis (including acute exacerbations in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease [AECOPD]), and bronchiolitis to be the most important LRTIs. Areas covered: This review will describe the epidemiology of LRTIs in adults focusing on community-acquired pneumonia, influenza, and AECOPD, utilizing data from the more recent literature. Expert commenta...

Human rhinovirus (HRV) is the most commonly detected respiratory virus following hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) in both the upper and lower respiratory tract [1,2]. Though rare, once virologically confirmed lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) has developed, mortality rates due to HRV appear to be high (21% to 41%) and even similar to those seen with other respiratory viruses including influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and parainfluenza viruses (PIVs) [3 –5]. Risk factors associated with LRTI in this population have been defined for RSV, PIVs, influenza, and human metapneumovirus (HMPV) [6&n...

Authors: Kanduc D Abstract Analyses of the peptide sharing between five common human viruses (Borna disease virus, influenza A virus, measles virus, mumps virus and rubella virus) and the human proteome highlight a massive viral vs. human peptide overlap that is mathematically unexpected. Evolutionarily, the data underscore a strict relationship between viruses and the origin of eukaryotic cells. Indeed, according to the viral eukaryogenesis hypothesis and in light of the endosymbiotic theory, the first eukaryotic cell (our lineage) originated as a consortium consisting of an archaeal ancestor of the eukaryotic cyt...
