NEW YORK, June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Coronaviruses are frequent in humans, causing illness of the upper and lower respiratory-tract systems, such as the common cold or pneumonia.
Since the SARS epidemic in 2003, coronaviruses have been on the watch list for emerging pathogens, and the ongoing outbreak of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) confirmed that they represent a serious threat.
Clinicians treating patients suffering from Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) currently have no drugs specifically targeted to the MERS coronavirus (MERS-CoV), a virus first detected in humans in 2012 that has since caused 614 laboratory-confirmed infections, including 181 that were fatal.
The deadly Middle East respiratory syndrome-coronavirus (MERS-CoV) has been largely confined to the Middle East and surrounding countries since it was first reported two years ago.

With the ongoing threat of the dangerous MERS coronavirus, experts have been feverishly looking for a source of the infection, which has so far claimed the lives of more than 130 people since first being detected in June 2012 – and first reported three months later in September 2012.
The SARS coronavirus is the virus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). In 2003 the World Health Organization issued a press release stating that the coronavirus identified by a number of laboratories was the official cause of SARS. It causes severe illness marked initially by systemic symptoms of muscle pain, headache, fever, followed in 2-10 days by the onset of respiratory symptoms, mainly cough, dyspnea, and pneumonia. SARS patients have a decrease in the number of...
The common cold is a viral disease of the upper respiratory system, caused primarily by rhinoviruses and coronaviruses. Symptoms usually include a cough, sore throat, runny nose, and a fever. There is no known treatment to shorten the duration of the virus yet the cold normally dissipates after 7 to 10 days. It is the most common infectious disease in humans who on average are infected two to four times a year in adults. It can also be called a upper respiratory tract infection. Other...
Coronavirus, a species in the genera of animal virus, belongs to the subfamily Coronavirinae in the family Coronaviridae. They are enveloped viruses with single-stranded RNA genome and a helical symmetry. The genome size ranges from 16 to 31 kilobases. The name, meaning crown, comes from the virus envelope appearing to be crowned when viewed under an electron microscopy. These viruses mainly infect the upper respiratory system and the gastrointestinal tract of mammals and birds. There...
Canine coronavirus, of the Coronaviridae family, is a virus that causes a highly contagious intestinal disease in dogs. It was discovered in 1971 in Germany during an outbreak in sentry dogs. It replicates in the villi of the small intestine. Intestinal disease can be related to virus-induced apoptosis of cells. Originally the virus was thought to be very severe but is now considered to be very mild. It can, however, be serious if the dog is also infected with canine parvovirus....
