Rhinovirus detection in symptomatic and asymptomatic children value of host transcriptome analysis
Gene Expression Profiling
Respiratory Tract Infections
Symptomatic RV infection induced a robust and reproducible transcriptional signature, whereas identification of RV in asymptomatic children was not associated with significant systemic transcriptional immune responses. Transcriptional profiling represents a useful tool to discriminate between active infection and incidental virus detection.
