High genetic diversity and predominance of Rhinovirus A and C from Panamanian hospitalized children under five years with respiratory infections.
Virol J. 2012 Nov 01; 9:257.VJ

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Human Rhinoviruses (HRVs) have high genetic diversity and three species have been described: HRV-A, HRV-B, and the recently recognized HRV-C, which has been rapidly identified worldwide.

FINDINGS

In the present study, we report the frequency and diversity of Human Rhinovirus (HRV) strains circulating in Panama from children hospitalized with respiratory infections.

CONCLUSIONS

HRVs of species A, B and C have been identified with a predominance of HRV-A and HRV-C over HRV-B, and marked genetic diversity within each species.
