• Adenoviruses (members of the family Adenoviridae) are medium-sized (90-100 nm), nonenveloped (without an outer lipid bilayer) viruses with an icosahedral nucleocapsid containing a double stranded DNA genome. (wikipedia.org)
  • There are currently 25 species in this genus, including the type species Human mastadenovirus C. Diseases associated with this genus include: very common human infection, estimated to be responsible for between 2% and 5% of all respiratory infections. (wikipedia.org)
  • in humans, more than 50 distinct adenoviral serotypes have been found to cause a wide range of illnesses, from mild respiratory infections in young children (known as the common cold) to life-threatening multi-organ disease in people with a weakened immune system. (wikipedia.org)
  • CAV-2 is one of the causes of respiratory infections in dogs, but it is similar enough to CAV-1 that vaccine for one creates immunity for both. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2. To compare the incidence of treatment emergent dsDNA viral infections (other than those caused by AdV), in subjects treated with CMX001 QW versus CMX001 BIW versus placebo, initially, for the preemption of adenoviral disease. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • A class of bacteria which must live within other cells (obligate intracellular parasitic) is chlamydia (genus), the world leader in causing sexually transmitted infection (STI). (wikipedia.org)
  • Investigators will test to see if blood cells from donor that have been grown in a special way, can prevent patients from getting an infection. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • They have used T cells made in this way from the blood of donors to prevent infections in patients who are getting a bone marrow or blood stem cell transplant but this will be the first time investigators make them from cord blood. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • CMV can also cause serious infections in patients with weak or suppressed immune systems. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Life-threatening fungal infections in humans most often occur in immunocompromised patients or vulnerable people with a weakened immune system, although fungi are common problems in the immunocompetent population as the causative agents of skin, nail, or yeast infections. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other causes include: Adenoviridae Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) Herpes simplex Cytomegalovirus Mycoplasma genitalium Reactive arthritis Trichomonas vaginalis Ureaplasma urealyticum Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus Group B streptococcus In female patients, urethritis can be caused by pelvic inflammatory disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • A full spectrum of microorganisms is responsible for CAP in adults, and patients with certain risk factors are more susceptible to infections of certain groups of microorganisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some patients have an underlying problem which increases their risk of infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • Infants can acquire lung infections before birth by breathing infected amniotic fluid or through a blood-borne infection which crossed the placenta. (wikipedia.org)
  • Work with monoclonal antibodies (MAb) has shown or proven that the human body can defend itself against HIV, and certain individuals remain asymptomatic for decades after HIV infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • By comparison, 19.7% of children with gastroenteritis and 0.7% of those without gastroenteritis were positive for rotavirus infection. (umassmed.edu)
  • Pathogenicity is also distinct from the transmissibility of the virus, which quantifies the risk of infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • And, importantly, HAART does nothing to prevent the spread of HIV by people with undiagnosed infections. (wikipedia.org)
  • Preventative medications such as antiretroviral treatments have been put into use to help prevent infection, but do not work as well as a vaccine would. (wikipedia.org)
  • Even where an Agamid shows no signs of infection, many are believed to be sub-clinically infected, or carriers of the virus. (wikipedia.org)
