The profile of viral infections in chronic diseases of the upper respiratory tract: adenoamigdaliana hypertrophy and secretory otitis media, rhinosinusitis

Abstract

This 4 year long thematic project, includes three main subject-sections. Three principal researches and other five participants will participate in the project, which will be developed in collaboration between the department of otorhinolaryngology of Hospital of the Medical School of the University of São Paulo in Ribeirão Preto and the Virus Research Unit of the Medical School Faculty of the University of São Paulo in Ribeirão Preto, and will cost R$ 368.140,50 and US$ 54.277,00. The chronic diseases of upper respiratory tract are very common and have great socioeconomic impact. However, very little has been studied about the role of different respiratory viral infections on the genesis of these clinical signs. So, this project proposes to study the role of viral infections in chronic diseases of upper respiratory tract, detecting and quantifying the principal respiratory viruses currently known (human rhinovirus, human respiratory syncytial virus, human influenza virus, human parainfluenza viruses, human metapneumovirus, human enterovirus, human coronavirus, adenovirus and human bocavirus) in nasal and paranasal sinuses washes of patients with chronic rhinosinusitis, in tonsils and adenoids of patients with adenotonsillar hypertrophy, and in middle ear secretions of patients with serous otitis media. Moreover, in this project, it will be investigated the replication of virus in these secretions and examined HBoV and HRV replication ‘in situ’ in tissues obtained from patients these patients. (AU)
