temperature loggers in influenza research
Judith van den Brand is a researcher at Erasmus MC. She has been using
Star-Oddi's DST micro-T temperature loggers in her
research on influenza.
Van den Brand says that, humans and animals infected with a
virus often show a rise in body temperature during disease. Since it
is ethically not desirable to perform experiments in humans, we use
animal models to investigate the pathogenesis of infections with
influenza viruses such as seasonal human influenza virus, pandemic
H1N1 and highly pathogenic avian influenza virus H5N1.
Many animal models show very little clinical signs during disease
caused by influenza virus which makes it difficult to monitor the
disease in live animals. Therefore, we use Star Oddi
temperature loggers to monitor the temperature of the infected
animals. In a recent experiment we were able to demonstrate the
changes in different parts of the respiratory tract in an animal
model during infection. The body temperature data complete the other
data that are obtained by different methods like histopathology,
immunohistochemistry, virology and haematology.
This research gives a better understanding about the pathogenesis of
influenza virus infection and therefore makes it possible to develop
better preventive and therapeutical measures against severe disease
caused by this virus.
