GSE155237: RNAseq of nasal cells from pre-symptomatic volunteers experimentally infected with RSV

Bulk RNA sequencing

We report the analysis of nasal curettage cells by RNAseq collected at pre-symptomatic timepoints in healthy adults experimentally challenged with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Following inoculation, 57% of participants developed PCR-confirmed infection. Prior to viral challenge, 80 differentially expressed genes were identified that associated with susceptibility to symptomatic infection. At day 3, 87 differentially expressed genes were associated with protection. Thus, we showed that the nasal mucosa at the time of virus exposure and during the incubation phase correlate with susceptibiltiy and protection from respiratory viral infection.
