Human adenoviruses (AdV) cause a variety of diseases
and are prevalent throughout the world. Common clinical
manifestations resulting from AdV infection include
pneumonia, cystitis, conjunctivitis, diarrhea, hepatitis,
myocarditis, and encephalitis. In the general population,
AdV often cause mild or self-limiting disease; however,
severe disseminated disease can occur in
immunocompromised individuals and can be fatal. The
"gold standard" of diagnosis for AdV infection has been
viral culture. Although culture provides a sensitive method
for diagnosis, it can take as long as 3 weeks to achieve
results. Immunofluorescence and other immunodiagnostic
assays using direct antigen detection are more rapid than
culture, but they lack sensitivity. Recently, PCR-based
assays have been employed in clinical practice for the
detection of AdV and have proven to be comparable or
better than the classic methods. A real-time PCR targeting
all serotypes in one reaction provides AdV detection in a
rapid and efficient manner.

C. trachomatis and N. gonorrhoeae infections are the most
common sexually transmitted bacterial diseases in the
United States. Amplified methods are now available for the
detection of these two pathogens. Amplified methods offer
increased sensitivity (96% for CT and GC) as opposed to
non-amplified assays (67% for CT, 85% for GC). Also,
amplified methods allow for testing from urine specimens.

This qualitative assay for cytomegalovirus (CMV) detection
is majorly used for detection of CMV in cerebrospinal fluid
(CSF). CMV can be an important pathogen causing
encephalitis and meningitis. Recognition of the presence of
CMV is critical to the therapy and differentiation. Cell
cultures have not been reliable for recovering this virus
from CSF. Detection of CMV DNA in CSF is now the gold
standard for the laboratory diagnosis of central nervous
system diseases caused by this virus.
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is an significant pathogen in
immunocompromised patients, such as organ and bone
marrow transplant recipients. However, antiviral drugs must
be used carefully due to side effects. As a persistent
infection, it is important to differentiate between CMV
infection and disease, and CMV quantitation in blood a
major laboratory technique to monitor infection status and
manage patients. CMV viral load by cell cultures has not
been reliable and has had low sensitivity. Antigenemia
assays do not measure free viruses not associated with
cells and will not work with patients with low white counts.
Quantification of CMV viral load by real-time PCR offers a
specific, wide-range viral load with significantly shorter turn-
around times.

Chlamydia pneumoniae is a common respiratory pathogen
that is now being implicated in a number of chronic
diseases.More recently, C. pneumoniae has been
implicated in playing a role in several chronic diseases
such as reactive arthritis, atherosclerosis, Alzheimers
disease (AD) and multiple sclerosis (MS). Recent studies
have shown that C. pneumoniae has been detected in the
cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of 95% - 100% of patients having
MS. In patients with AD, there have been reports of a high
incidence of C. pneumoniae also. At this time, it is unclear
whether C. pneumoniae is a silent passenger or plays an
active role in these disease processes. It has been shown
that in patients diagnosed with giant-cell arteritis,
improvement of the patients condition coincided with the
institution of antibiotic treatment. Whole blood and CSF
tested by PCR for C. pneumoniae has proven to be the
most rapid and sensitive way to detect infection with this
organism.

EBV is an important pathogen causing central nervous
system infections. Prompt recognition of the presence of
EBV is critical to the patient care and differential diagnosis.
Cell cultures have not been reliable for recovering this virus
from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Detection of EBV DNA in
CSF is now the gold standard for the laboratory diagnosis
of central nervous system diseases caused by this virus.
EBV has been implicated as a cause of lymphoproliferative
diseases in immunocompromised patients, including post-
transplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLDs). PTLDs
cause a high rate of mortality in transplant recipients.
Quantitation of the systemic EBV load may provide a highly
sensitive and specific method to predict the development
and monitoring of EBV disease.

Human ehrlichiosis is a tick-borne rickettsial disease of
great public health concern in the United States. Clinical
diagnosis of human ehrlichiosis has been difficult because
its typical nonspecific presentation of symptoms include
fever, headache, myalgias, arthralgias and nausea. This is
easily confused with other illnesses such as influenza or
other tick-borne zoonoses such as Lyme disease and
Rocky Mountain spotted fever. This PCR assay for
detection of ehrlichiosis makes it possible for early, specific
diagnosis and treatment of this disease.
The enteroviruses are the most common cause of
meningitis in the United States and an important cause of
encephalitis. Occurring mainly in the summer and fall,
enterovirus meningitis leads to a large number of
hospitalizations of both children and adults. Rapid and
accurate detection of enterovirus RNA in the CSF can
affect clinical decision making, promote rapid discharge of
patients, and reduce unnecessary diagnostic and
therapeutic interventions.

HHV-6 can be an important pathogen causing encephalitis
and meningitis. Prompt recognition of the presence of HHV-
6 is helpful for clinical differential diagnosis. Cell cultures
have not been reliable for recovering this virus from
cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Detection of HHV-6 DNA in CSF
is now the gold standard for the laboratory diagnosis of
central nervous system diseases caused by this virus.

HHV-7 is an important pathogen causing encephalitis and
meningitis. Prompt recognition of the presence of HHV-7 is
helpful for clinical differential diagnosis. Cell cultures have
not been reliable for recovering this virus from
cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Detection of HHV-7 DNA in CSF
is now the gold standard for the laboratory diagnosis of
central nervous system diseases caused by this virus.
HHV-8 can be an important pathogen causing encephalitis
and meningitis. Prompt recognition of the presence of HHV-
8 is helpful for clinical differential diagnosis. Cell cultures
have not been reliable for recovering this virus from
cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Detection of HHV-8 DNA in CSF
is now the gold standard for the laboratory diagnosis of
central nervous system diseases caused by this virus.
HHV-8 testing can be used to confirm Kaposi sarcoma in
tissue materials.

HBV is one of the leading causes of chronic hepatitis,
cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. More than 2 billion
people are infected worldwide and it is responsible for 1
million deaths annually. In developed countries, HBV is a
blood-borne viral infection transmitted via sexual activity,
injection-drug use or occupational exposure. Almost all
vertical transmission (mother to infant) of HBV has been
eliminated in the United States due to the institution of an
aggressive HBV vaccination program and the
immunoprophylactic treatment of infants born to HBsAg
positive mothers. Chronic HBV patients may go on to
develop more severe conditions such as cirrhosis,
hepatocellular carcinoma, liver failure and other
complications. There have been recent advances in
antiviral therapy with the development of new nucleoside
analogues. This has supported the need for HBV viral
quantification for the monitoring of treatment.

HCV genotyping is recommended after diagnosis of HCV
to help in selecting a therapeutic regimen and also to
determine expected virological response and therefore
outcome of therapy. The current guidelines for therapy
suggest that patients infected with genotype 1 follow a
longer course of therapy (48 weeks) and a combination
therapy than those of other genotypes. Amplifying and
sequencing the 5' untranslated region (UTR) region of HCV
genome allows the HCV genotype to be determined by
comparing to prototypic HCV genotypes in a database.
HCV is a cause of chronic liver disease formerly known as
non-A, non-B hepatitis. An 8,000 10,000 deaths per year
are due to HCV-related chronic liver disease. Those who
should be tested for HCV infection include persons who
have persistently abnormal alanine transaminase (ALT)
levels, have injected illegal drugs, certain recipients of
blood or blood components or an organ transplant, and
persons on chronic hemodialysis. Persons at risk
(healthcare and emergency workers or babies born to HCV-
infected women) should also be tested. Diagnostic tests for
HCV antibodies indicate prior exposure to HCV but do not
distinguish between cleared and active infection. In a
patient with anti-HCV, detectable HCV RNA indicates an
active infection.
It is necessary to quantitate HCV RNA once a patient has
been diagnosed with an HCV infection to provide base-line
levels prior to starting drug therapy. HCV can be treated
with interferon-a alone or in combination with ribavirin. The
amount of HCV RNA in the plasma (viral load) correlates to
the response to therapy and the stage of HCV infection.
HCV quantification will track levels to monitor the response
to drug therapy. With successful drug therapy the viral load
decreases and in some patients reaches undetectable
levels. Nucleic acid techniques are currently the only
reliable laboratory test for HCV quantitation in clinical
specimens.

HIV is the etiologic agent of acquired immunodeficiency
syndrome (AIDS). Quantitative measurements of HIV
viremia in the peripheral blood have shown that higher
virus levels may be correlated with increased risk of clinical
progression of HIV disease, and that reductions in plasma
virus levels may be associated with decreased risk of
clinical progression. HIV viral load and drug treatment
response are closely linked. With successful drug therapy
the viral load decreases and with failure the load increases.
HIV Ultra sensitive quantification will provide tracking to
monitor the response to drug therapy of those patients who
fall below the level detected by normal viral load assays.
More than 70 types of HPV have been identified, and are
generally classified as high-risk or low-risk depending on
their known association or lack of association with cancer
and its precursor lesion, high-grade cervical intraepithelial
neoplasia (CIN 2-3). Prospective studies (age 16-60 years)
have shown that 15-28% of HPV DNA positive women
developed squamous intraepithelial lesions (SIL)
suggestive of CIN 1-3 or cancer within 2 years compared
to only 1-3% of HPV DNA negative women. Although
current scientific literature suggests that persistent infection
with high-risk HPV is the main risk factor for development
of high-grade cervical neoplasia and cancer, apparent
persistence may represent continuous infection with a
single HPV type, with multiple HPV types, or reinfection.
Nonetheless, women who are repeatedly Pap negative and
HR HPV negative appear to be at low risk for having or
developing cervical precancerous lesions.

HSV-1 and HSV-2 are important pathogens causing
encephalitis and meningitis. Prompt recognition of the
presence of HSV is critical to the initiation of Acyclovoir
therapy which may greatly improve patient outcome. Cell
cultures have not been reliable for recovering this virus
from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Detection of HSV DNA in
CSF is now the gold standard for the laboratory diagnosis
of central nervous system diseases caused by this virus.




Drug failure in therapy for AIDS patients has been closely
linked with HIV viral resistance. Certain mutations in HIV-1
genes (protease and RT regions) targeted by antiretroviral
drugs can confer drug resistance. Genotype testing detects
these mutations which produce phenotypic resistance. -
Resistance testing is recommended to help guide the
choice of new regimens after treatment failure and for
guiding therapy for pregnant women. - It should be
considered in treatment-na‫ ﶥ‬patients with established
infection. - Testing also should be considered prior to
initiating therapy in patients with acute HIV-1 infection.
Influenza A and B viruses account for more morbidity and
mortality than any other respiratory viruses. The elderly as
well as persons of any age who have underlying cardiac or
pulmonary disease, diabetes or immunosuppressive
disease are at increased risk. Cell cultures available for
detection of influenza A are unsatisfactory due to the length
of time required to grow and identify the virus. Detection of
influenza A RNA by PCR is a rapid, sensitive and specific
technique for laboratory diagnosis, allowing informed
clinical decision making and timely administration of anti-
viral agents.

RSV is the single most important cause of serious lower
respiratory tract disease in infants and children. The two
subgroups, A and B, can co-circulate in the same area
simultaneously. The elderly who have underlying cardiac or
pulmonary disease are also at high risk. RSV can cause
severe pneumonia and death in persons with leukemia and
bone marrow transplants. It is critical to have an accurate
and rapid RSV diagnosis to promptly initiate clinical
treatment and infection control. Cell cultures available for
detection of RSV are unsatisfactory due to the 5 to 9 days
required to grow and identify the virus.Detection of RSV
RNA by PCR is a rapid, sensitive and specific technique for
laboratory diagnosis.
PCR for Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTB) has
already proved to be a useful tool for the diagnosis of
tuberculosis infection. For histopathologic investigations,
human tissue samples are mostly stored as formalin-fixed,
paraffin-embedded blocks. The molecular amplification
techniques can be used in DNA extracted from tissue
blocks rule out MTB in tissues stained positive by acid-fast
stain, thereby improving diagnosis.

VZV is an important pathogen causing central nervous
system infections, especially meningitis in HIV-1 infected
patients. Prompt recognition of the presence of VZV is
critical to the therapy initiation. Cell cultures have not been
reliable for recovering this virus from cerebrospinal fluid
(CSF). Detection of VZV DNA in CSF is now the gold
standard for the laboratory diagnosis of central nervous
system diseases caused by this virus.

WNV is a RNA virus transmitted by mosquitoes. The
infection primarily involves birds; humans are incidental
hosts. WNV was first recognized in the United States in
1999, when it caused an epidemic of meningoencephalitis
on the east coast. It has been reported recently that WNV
can be transmitted by organ transplantation. While
detection of specific IgM antibody remains the choice of
test for diagnosis, molecular testing has been the sensitive
and specific testing for screening organs/cells in the
transplantation service.
