Adenovirus is responsible for 5−10% of upper respiratory infections in children, and many infections in adults as well. Common symptoms are chills, fever, sore throat, coughing, pinkeye, gastroenteritis and hemorrhagic cystitis.
Diagnosis is difficult because the initial symptoms can be similar to those caused by other infectious agents. There are no antiviral drugs to treat adenoviral infections, so treatment is largely directed at the symptoms. Because the adenovirus is highly contagious, rapid diagnosis and prompt treatment of patients can have a positive effect on public health.
Complimentary product: Tauns Capilia RSV Neo can provide rapid and accurate detection of RS virus antigens from symptomatic patients. No special instruments or equipment are required. Find out more!
