CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- "While winter is on the wane, our viruses of winter are still not finished with us yet. With a few more months of the cold and flu season left, SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) is trying to rear its all too ugly head. As the CDC reports, wintertime brings a host of respiratory infections including Influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), rhinovirus, and viruses responsible for viral pneumonia," as reported in Deb Group's Hand...

New Coronavirus Strain Adapted To Humans, Replicates Faster Than SARS
2013-02-19 11:24:51

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new strain of coronavirus, which has already infected 12 people and killed six in the past several months, has been found to breed in the human body much faster than SARS and can evade the immune system just as easily as a common cold. While health experts feel they may be able to develop immunotherapy to prevent the spread of the disease, they do not yet know how readily it does spread. Publishing their findings in the February...

SARS-Like Virus Cases Climb: Tenth Person Infected
2013-02-11 12:45:21

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Last September, a Qatari man was diagnosed with a respiratory illness similar to the SARS virus. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), this 49-year old man was the second person confirmed to have been diagnosed with the new coronavirus. Today, another person has been found with this virus, thereby becoming the 10th person globally since September to have contracted the virus. Five of these patients have since died...

LONDON, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The World Health Organization (WHO) last week reported that four new cases of SARS-like virus have been found in Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and the Department of Health in Singapore reported one additional case, adding to the two cases from the Middle East reported in late September. When the first two cases were reported, BioRadar UK Ltd., a biotechnology company focused on predicting and preventing viral pandemics, published data on October 5(th) showing a...

Rapid mutation has long been considered a key to viral adaptation to environmental change. But in the case of the coronavirus responsible for deadly severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), collaborating researchers at the University of North Carolina and Vanderbilt University have found that accelerating the rate of mutations cripples the virus's ability to cause disease in animals. In addition, they say this finding may allow scientists to explore a new option for creating safer live...

LONDON, Oct. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The identification of the virus responsible for a second case of SARS-like respiratory virus, "London1_novel CoV 2012", has raised concerns over the risk of the disease spreading (1). These concerns may be justified given the observed rise in virus's genomic Replikin(TM) Count. (Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20121005/PH87818 ) An analysis of the current virus's genomic Replikin Count by Bioradar UK Ltd has revealed the Count to be increased...

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...

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...
