• genome
  • The cloning and sequencing of the complete genome of Norovirus genus has resulted in the development of molecular detection methods. (news-medical.net)
  • Like all noroviruses, MNV has a linear, non-segmented, positive-sense RNA genome of approximately 7.5 kbp, encoding a large polyprotein which is cleaved into six smaller non-structural proteins (NS1/2 to NS7) by the viral 3C-like protease (NS6), a major structural protein (VP1) of about 58~60 kDa and a minor capsid protein (VP2).

  • Phylogenetic prediction of cis-acting elements: a cre-like sequence in Norovirus genome? (wikipedia.org)
  • strains
  • Two new cocirculating GII.4 norovirus strains emerged nationwide in 2006 and likely accounted for this increase in activity. (cdc.gov)
  • and increased access to a norovirus strain sequencing database at CDC will lead to more accurate assessment of the morbidity and mortality associated with norovirus and more rapid identification of newly emerging norovirus strains. (cdc.gov)
  • spreads
  • Norovirus is a germ that spreads quickly and easily. (cdc.gov)
  • This short video explains what norovirus is, how it spreads, and how you can protect yourself and loved ones from getting it. (cdc.gov)
  • Norovirus spreads quickly. (cdc.gov)
  • Norovirus spreads quickly from person to person in enclosed places like nursing homes, daycare centers, schools, and cruise ships. (cdc.gov)
  • The notoriety of norovirus comes from the ease with which it spreads from one person to another: You can catch it by ingesting food or drink that's been contaminated, or by touching any contaminated surface, then touching your nose, mouth or eyes. (livescience.com)
  • cases
  • There were 87 cases of norovirus in October and November last year, compared with 14 in 2011 and 23 in 2010, ESR senior scientist Joanne Hewitt said. (nzherald.co.nz)
  • Norovirus result in about 685 million cases of disease and 200,000 deaths globally a year. (wikipedia.org)
  • severe
  • Ms Hewitt said the emergence of new strain prompted a warning for healthcare institutions to be prepared for a severe norovirus season with the rise of the Sydney-2012 variant. (nzherald.co.nz)
  • viral
  • The availability of more sensitive diagnostic methods has radically changed our appreciation of the epidemiology of norovirus disease, which resulted in strategies for prevention and treatment of this easily transmitted viral agent. (news-medical.net)
  • recover
  • If you have been infected with norovirus, do not prepare food for others for at least two days after you recover, the CDC recommends. (livescience.com)
  • year
  • CDC estimates that each year in the United States norovirus causes 19 to 21 million illnesses, 56,000 to 71,000 hospitalizations, and 570 to 800 deaths. (cdc.gov)
  • found
  • Christopher Beveridge, manager of environmental health for the district health unit, said Thursday that norovirus was found in a stool sample from a patient admitted to hospital. (cbc.ca)
  • surfaces
  • The combination of cleaning and disinfecting surfaces is usually effective at removing contamination, although some pathogens such as norovirus have an apparent resistance to these techniques. (wikipedia.org)
  • days
  • Although having norovirus can be unpleasant, it is not usually dangerous and most who contract it make a full recovery within two to three days. (wikipedia.org)
  • transmission
  • For example, some epidemiological studies indicate transmission of norovirus in passenger airplanes and ships, and SARS coronavirus through a contaminated building sewage system, via contaminated toilets rather than other routes. (wikipedia.org)
  • hospital
  • On 16 August 2008 the hospital was put in lockdown for one week due to a norovirus outbreak affecting 73 patients and nearly 100 staff, blocking most visitors for the duration, and postposting 2,300 procedures. (wikipedia.org)
  • directly
  • Whether or not aerosols can contain norovirus, SARS coronavirus, or other pathogens has not been directly measured as of 2015. (wikipedia.org)
