Detection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus in blood of infected patients



Detection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus in blood of infected patients



Journal of Clinical Microbiology 42(1): 347-350



Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) has caused major outbreaks worldwide, resulting in an urgent need to obtain sensitive and accurate diagnosis of this disease. PCR-based detection methods were developed for use on a variety of samples, including blood. Eighteen subjects were investigated, and results indicated that blood samples contain sufficient virus for detection by using quantitative real-time PCR.
