Systematic name M5142
Brief description Genes down-regulated in comparison of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from infancts with acute RSV infection versus PBMCs from infants with acute influenza infection.
Full description or abstract To study the transcriptional profile of patients with acute RSV or Influenza infection,children of median age 2.4 months (range 1.5-8.6) hospitalized with acute RSV and influenza virus infection were offered study enrollment after microbiologic confirmation of the diagnosis. Blood samples were collected from them within 42-72 hours of hospitalization. We excluded children with suspected or proven polymicrobial infections, with underlying chronic medical conditions (i.e congenital heart disease, renal insufficiency), with immunodeficiency, or those who received systemic steroids or other immunomodulatory therapies. The RSV cohort consisted of 51 patients with median age of 2 months (range 1.5-3.9) and the influenza cohort had 28 patients with median age of 5.5 months (range 1.4-21). Control samples were obtained from healthy children undergoing elective surgical procedures or at outpatient clinic visits. To exclude viral co-infections we performed nasopharyngeal viral cultures of all subjects. We recruited 10 control patients for the RSV cohort with median age of 6.7 months (range 5-10), and 12 control patients for the influenza cohort with median age of18.5 months (range 10.5-26).

We need your help: Update on GSEA/MSigDB funding support

Last November we submitted a proposal to NCI's Information Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) program for the continued funding of GSEA and MSigDB. Unfortunately, our proposal was not funded in this round, but we were encouraged to resubmit for the next one. This funding is critical for our continuing support and enhancement of the GSEA-MSigDB resource.

For our original submission many of you sent us emails of support, an important requirement for these grants. We now ask for your help again. We would greatly appreciate a short email message from you describing how the resource has been of value to your work and any concerns you may have about its continued availability.

Please send us your message of support to on or before Monday June 5, 2023.

Thanks in advance for your help and support.
The GSEA/MSigDB Team.
