However, community</p><p>viral infections are common and often mild or asymptomatic, and the role</p><p>of viruses in changing daily symptoms is less clear. We hypothesized such</p><p>infections would be associated with increased symptoms.</p><p>METHODS: 67 children, aged 5-12, with moderately severe asthma, self-</p><p>collected nasal-wash and exhaled breath samples and recorded their recent</p><p>asthma and cold symptoms and current lung function, twice per week for</p><p>10 weeks. The presence of 8 viruses, including rhinovirus (HRV), was</p><p>analysed by PCR. A mixed model, to account for repeated measures, was</p><p>used to determine the current and delayed impact of viruses on symptoms</p><p>and lung function.</p><p>RESULTS: 25.5% of nasal samples and 11.5% of breath samples were</p><p>positive for HRV; only 1.8% were positive for other viruses. The presence</p><p>of HRVin nasal wash, but not in breath, was associatedwith the presence of</p><p>symptoms; adjusted odds ratios: cough 2.53, (95%CI 1.62-3.94), wheeze</p><p>3.05, (95%CI 1.89 to 4.93), self-reported febrile 2.07, (95%CI 1.17 to 3.64)</p><p>and coryzal symptoms 1.95, (95%CI 1.14 to 3.32) over the previous 3-4</p><p>days. These associations remained 3-4 days later, but generally not 7 days</p><p>later. There was no association between any virus positivity and changes in</p><p>electronically recorded PEFR and FEV1.</p><p>CONCLUSIONS: In a longitudinal study of children with moderate</p><p>asthma, the presence of rhinovirus in nasal wash, but not in exhaled breath,</p><p>was associated with worsening of several indices of respiratory symptoms</p><p>for up to a week.T</p></li></ul>
