Abstract

Adenoviruses are non-enveloped, double-stranded deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) viruses associated with a wide range of clinical syndromes in humans (1,2). To date, 67 immunologically distinct serotypes of adenoviruses have been described and further classified into one of seven (A-G) species based on hemagglutinin properties, DNA homology, oncogenic potential in rodents, and clinical disease (see Table 1)(1,3-6).
