What is adenovirus type 5 DNA?
The infectious cycle of subgroup C human adenovirus, such as adenovirus type 5 (Ad5), in permissive cells in culture is characterized by a strict temporal program of viral gene expression that culminates in production of large quantities of viral DNA and structural proteins.
What symptoms does adenovirus cause?
Adenoviruses can cause a wide range of illnesses such as
- common cold or flu-like symptoms.
- sore throat.
- acute bronchitis (inflammation of the airways of the lungs, sometimes called a “chest cold”)
- pneumonia (infection of the lungs)
- pink eye (conjunctivitis)
What is the mortality rate of adenovirus?
The prognosis of adenovirus infection is generally good in immunocompetent hosts, but mortality rates may be as high as 70% in immunocompromised individuals.
How long does it take to recover from adenovirus?
Illness usually lasts three to five days, but serious infections can last for weeks. Complications can include ear infections, pneumonia, or meningitis (inflammation of the brain and spinal cord).
How many types of Bovine Adenovirus are there?
Nine antigenic types of the bovine adenovirus have been identified, with type 3 associated with respiratory disease. Two of the ovine and two of the caprine antigenic types have been identified. Clinical Signs.
What are the serotypes of bovine adenoviruses in Hungary?
Further two serotypes of bovine adenoviruses (serotypes 4 and 5). Acta Veterinaria Academiae Scientiarum Hungaricae, 16 (1):107-108. Bartha A; Máthé S; Áldásy P, 1970. New serotype 8 of bovine adenoviruses.
Are bovine adenoviruses dangerous to humans?
Because adenoviruses are usually confined to one host species or closely related species, the zoonotic and food safety threat is very low. To date there are no documented cases of clinical disease in humans caused by bovine adenoviruses.
What are ruminant adenoviruses?
The ruminant adenoviruses are DNA viruses that cause respiratory and reproductive tract diseases. Nine antigenic types of the bovine adenovirus have been identified, with type 3 associated with respiratory disease. Two of the ovine and two of the caprine antigenic types have been identified.
