Abstract: Human metapneumovirus (HMPV) is a newly identified member of the Family, Paramyxoviridae. The rirus was first discovered in year 2001 in hospotalised children in the Netherlands, and was found to cause mild respiratory infections in adults. However, evidence suggests that it can increase the severty of other respiratory viruses during co-infections. The proposed project will provide the first study to isolate and characterise HWPV from Singapre paediatric patients.
