Assistant Professor Marcos Perez-Losada co-authored "RSV bronchiolitis versus rhinovirus: Difference in nasal airway microRNA profiles and NFkB signaling", which was published in Pediatric Research on December 15th, 2017. Although rhinovirus infection is associated with increased risks of acute and chronic respiratory outcomes during childhood compared with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. The authors aimed to determine difference in nasal airway microRNA profiles and their downstream effects between infants with rhinovirus and RSV bronchiolitis. They found that in infants with bronchiolitis, rhinovirus and RSV infections had different nasal airway microRNA profiles associated with NFkB signaling.
