Abstract:

The fundamental objectives of this AFMSA FY10 OM study was accomplished real-time diarrheal disease causative agent detection capability. Highly sensitive and specific Norovirus GI and GII TaqMan assays were developed using the RAPID. The assays are applicable for use with diverse real-time PCR instrumentation to include the JBAIDS, HTS, and micro-array based systems. Project funding was provided by the Air Force Medical Support Agency AFMSA, Research, Development and Innovations Directorate SG9, Office of the Surgeon General AFSGR Falls Church, Virginia and the Military Infectious Diseases Research Program MIDRP, USAMRC, Fort Detrick, Frederick, Maryland. This project was conducted by the Enteric Diseases Department, Armed Forces Research Institute for the Medical Sciences AFRIMS and Clinical Research Division CRD59th MDW. This project was jointly funded and executed under memorandum of agreement MOA between Walter Reed Army Institute of Research WRAIR, Silver Spring, Maryland 59th Medical Wing MDW Lackland AFB, Texas MOA 2007 - 2012. Agreement No. DODI 4000.19 AFI 25-201.
