The book "Viral Etiologies in Acute Respiratory Infections" by Anusha H provides a comprehensive overview of the molecular characterization of two common respiratory viruses - human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV) and human metapneumovirus (HMPV). The book focuses on the molecular epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and clinical management of acute respiratory infections caused by these viruses, with special reference to pediatric populations. The author presents a detailed analysis of the genomic and proteomic profiles of HRSV and HMPV, along with their molecular evolution and genetic diversity. The book also discusses the diagnostic methods, including conventional and molecular techniques, for identifying these viruses in clinical samples. The clinical management of acute respiratory infections caused by HRSV and HMPV is another important area covered in the book. The author reviews the current therapeutic options available for managing these infections, including antiviral drugs and immunomodulators. Additionally, the book highlights the challenges associated with the development of effective vaccines against these viruses. Overall, the book provides valuable insights into the molecular characterization, diagnosis, and clinical management of acute respiratory infections caused by HRSV and HMPV, making it a useful resource for researchers, clinicians, and healthcare professionals working in this field.
