Monoclonal Time-Resolved Fluoroimmunoassay: Sensitive Systems for the Rapid Diagnosis of Respiratory Virus Infections

The respiratory viruses afflict everyone, causing an average of three respiratory illnesses per person per year and millions of lost work days per year, at an enormous economic cost. There are over 200 viruses that cause these respiratory illnesses, and this fact alone has discouraged vaccine development and made specific identification of virus infections difficult. However, it remains important to identify respiratory viruses, because antiviral therapy and control and prevention measures are available for some respiratory viruses. In the event of an outbreak, rapid identification of the causative agent may allow epidemiologic control measures to be put into action more expediently.
