  • Diagnosis of a critical respiratory illness caused by human metapneumovirus by use of a pan-virus microarray JOURNAL OF CLINICAL MICROBIOLOGY Chiu, C. Y., Alizadeh, A. A., Rouskin, S., Merker, J. D., Yeh, E., Yagi, S., Schnurr, D., Patterson, B. K., Ganem, D., DeRisi, J. L. 2007; 45 (7): 2340-2343


    A pan-virus DNA microarray (Virochip) was used to detect a human metapneumovirus (hMPV) strain associated with a critical respiratory tract infection in an elderly adult with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. This infection had previously eluded diagnosis despite extensive microbiological testing for possible etiologic agents. The patient's hMPV strain did not grow in viral culture, and only one of five specific reverse transcription-PCR assays for hMPV was positive.
