ADENOVIR
It is a group of viruses that has special affinity for the tissue linings of different organ system like respiratory tract, eyes, intestines and urinary tract. It frequent cause of diarrhea and is cause of acute respiratory infections.

Adenovir Symptoms

Adenovir Symptoms

OCCURRENCE
The infections caused by this virus are much more common among infants and children. Due to this child care centers are at risk of the infections caused by this virus. Infections can occur at any part and any time of the year but they are most common among winters, springs and early summers. This virus also cause conjunctivitis and pharyngeal conjunctivitis fever but in older children in summers. Majority of population experiences this virus as age of almost 10 years. Since there are many different types of adenoviruses repeated infections can occur.
SYMPTOMS
• Febrile respiratory disease
It is infection of respiratory tract and is very common. Besides this other symptoms are sore throat which is inflammation of pharyngeal membrane, inflammation of nasal membranes running nose, cough, swollen lymph nodes and many others. It can also cause bronchitis in children under the age of 3 years. It also effects lower respiratory tract.
• Conjunctivitis (pinkeye)
It is the inflammation of membranes of eye and inner surface of eye lids. This cn cause excessive discharge from eyes, red eyes and tearing. Keratoconjunctivitis is very common.
• Pharyngoconjunctival fever
As the name indicates it is caused when this virus infects eye and respiratory tract. Symptoms include red eyes and sore throat. It also includes fever, rhinitis and swallow lymph nodes.
• Gastroenteritis
It is the inflammation of the stomach ,small intestine and large intestine.
• UTI (urinary tract infections)
It includes sometimes linked to urinary tract infections, which causes increase in urine frequency, burning pain, or bloody urine.
TRANSMISSION
• It is air borne virus and if inhaled can cause infection.
• Swimming in contaminated water, using contaminated lens solutions or eye instruments, using contaminated towels and rubbing eyes with contaminated fingers causes the virus to infect the eyes.
• Washing hands after using toilet should be made mandatory to avoid this virus.
IT IS A VIRAL VECTOR
Adenovirus DNA does not interrupt in natural genome and shows no replication during cell division. This doesn’t allow their use in basic research but it has other applications which include:
• Gene Therapy
• Vaccination
Besides having such important applications they are still dangerous because when they come in contact with human beings they trigger a very potentially dangerous immune response.to overcome this problem scientists are trying to find such tyoe of this virus which doesn’t have such dangerous effects
WHAT IS VIRAL VECTOR
Viral vector iscommonly used by molecular biologists to incorporate genetic material into the cells. This process can be performed in two ways that is inside a living organism (in vivo) or living organism (in vitro)
DIAGNOSIS
Although this virus is important and has some distinguishing features but still it’s quite difficult to distinguish it from other viruses. To identify it properly cultures are made by taking organism from eye secretions, sputum or urine..The extent of infection can be estimated from the results of blood tests that measure increases in the quantity of antibodies the immune system produces to fight it. Antibody levels begin to rise about a week after infection occurs and remain elevated for about a year.
TREATMENT
Treatment of adenovirus is for relieving the symptoms caused by it. Rest is recommended with medication to have good results. Aspirin should be avoided in children because it causes Reye’s syndrome. Topical corticosteroids can be used for eye treatment.  Hospitalization is usually recommended for severe pneumonia and keratoconjuctivitis. There is no effective anti-virus still discovered.
PREVENTION FROM ADENOVIRUS

Strict Hand washing is best way of prevention from adenovirus. Moreover hospital related patients should use gloves and gowns before entering into child’s room.

COMPLICATIONS
1: Adenovirus pneumonia usually gets converted into lung disease. This is quite rare but still it has 10 percent mortality rate.
2: Children with weak immune system develop more complications from the adenovirus.
3: Intestinal adenovirus causes intussusception (an intestinal blockage which occurs when one part of intestine slides past another site).This cons=dition is emergency and it usually occurs in children. Symptoms include bloody stool, abdominal swelling, knees flexed to chest, loud cries from pain, weakness, and vomiting.
4: Usually a child retains adenovirus for long time with no major symptoms. But sometimes this causes tonsillitis or infection of adenoids(located in neck and throat).
