    Infection with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a leading cause of upper and lower respiratory tract infection in infants. It is accompanied by a considerably disease burden and a hospitalisation rate of up to 3% in infected infants. Besides, it is still a matter of intensive discussion...

    Objective: Maternal asthma is the most common chronic disease complicating pregnancy and is a risk factor for bronchiolitis in infancy. Recurrent episodes of bronchiolitis are strongly associated with the development of childhood asthma. Methods: We conducted a follow-up study of infants born to...

    Background: Acute viral bronchiolitis is one of the most common causes of hospitalisation during infancy in our region with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) historically being the major causative agent. Many infants with early-life RSV bronchiolitis have sustained bronchial hyperreactivity for...

    The article focuses on the studies about the interactions between viral infections, wheezing, atopy and asthma in children. Evidence shows that acute infections with rhinoviruses and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) are a common cause of acute wheeze in infancy and childhood. Although symptoms...

    Thirty-five children known to have had respiratory syncytial virus bronchiolitis in infancy were examined at the age of 8 and their respiratory function tested. The results were compared with those in 35 controls matched for age, sex, and social class.

    A history of acute bronchiolitis in infancy caused by respiratory syncytial virus is a risk factor for recurrent wheezing in early childhood. Because the attachment (G) protein sensitizes mice for pulmonary eosinophilia and because Th2 cells are central in the pathogenesis of asthma, plasma...
