Creation of a Registry of Pediatric Respiratory Samples and Plasma/Sera to Define Viral Profiles and SARS-CoV2 Seroprevalence in Mississippi Children During the Global SARS-CoV2 (COVID19) Pandemic

About this Study

SARS-CoV2 is a novel coronavirus causing a pandemic and which has recently been spreading/diagnosed in MS with dramatically increasing frequency. There is limited data regarding co-infection with other respiratory viruses in children and increasing data supports SARS-CoV2-infected children are in fact, asymptomatic or pauci-symptomatic.  Children may present with non-specific symptoms that are attributed to other viruses. Understanding the presence of other viruses and the seroprevalence of antibodies to SARS-CoV2 and other coronaviruses at this time will allow clearer classification of disease within MS both prior to and during the first anticipated peak of SARS-CoV2.

Our goal is to create a registry of specimens for the main objective of this study, which is to understand better the viral co-infection profiles and SARS-CoV2 antibody profiles in asymptomatic and/or pauci-symptomatic children in various health care settings over time in MS.
