CONCLUSIONS HRV-A was the most commonly detected species among adult outpatients in Europe during the winter seasons 2007/2008 and 2008/2009. Multiple HRV genotypes were present in each community and closely related VP1 sequences were obtained from several distant locations, indicating broad distribution of certain HRV strains. The observed tendency towards geographic clustering, suggests for predominant circulation of particular HRV genotypes in each community. A higher level of genetic variability was identified among HRV-C isolates.

Genetic diversity and circulation patterns of HRV isolates (Figure 3) Multiple VP1 genotypes were present among the GRACE HRV-A, B and C strains with a tendency for close clustering of strains isolated from the same geographic area. For example HRV-A sequences from Antwerp, Szczecin, Gent, Rotenburg, and Lodz obtained during the 2008/2009 season, grouped closely together. Furthermore the majority of HRV-A isolates from Spain (Mataro and Barcelona) grouped closely together in 3 main clades. Geographic clustering was also observed for HRV-B strains from Spain (Mataro and Barcelona), and Antwerp and between HRV-C isolates from Poland (Lodz and Bialystock), and Antwerp. However, we also detected close clustering of VP1 sequences obtained from communities in different countries, suggesting for global distribution of rhinovirus strains. Two pairs of identical sequences were identified among the HRV-B and HRV-A clinical isolates. A higher degree of sequence variation was detected among HRV-C clinical strains, for which the estimated paiwise amino acid identity was as low as 58% in comparison to 63% and 72%, respectively, for HRV-A and HRV-B GRACE viruses. 3. RESULTS 3.1. HRV species prevalence and distribution of HRV infections in Europe (Figure 2) From the total of 357 (74% of 482) real-time HRV positive samples, 196 (55%) were successfully amplified and analysed by nucleotide sequencing. The genotyped HRV strains were obtained from 179 patients and 16 asymptomatic adults. HRV-A accounted for 67% (131/196) of the positive GRACE samples, HRV-C for 17% (33/354) and HRV-B 13% (26/357). In addition 6 samples (3% of 357) were identified to be positive for HEV, including 1 HEV 68 (HEV-D), 1 Human coxsackievirus A13 (HEV-C), 2 HEV 104 (HEV-C), 2 HEV 109 (HEV-C). Figure 2 shows the predominance of mainly HRV-A in the different geographic origins. Infections caused by HRV-C were more frequently observed in Antwerp and Gent during 2007/2008 season. HRV-C viruses were not detected in Cardiff and Szczecin during 2008/2009 season as well as in Southampton and Mataro during both seasons. HRV-B infections were observed during both epidemic seasons in 6 communities, but were not detected in Gent, in Southampton during 2007/2008 and also in the three communities in Poland during the 2008/2009 season.

Clinical specimens and study cohort A total of 482 nasopharyngeal swabs, real-time PCR positive for HRV, were collected at 11 primary care centers located in 6 European countries, during two consecutive seasons ( ) as part of the GRACE study (Genomics to combat Resistance against Antibiotics in Community-acquired LRTI in Europe, EU framework 6, funded contract PL518226). The studied specimens were from 481 adults (age years; mean 48 years) with a respiratory disease at their first (V1 samples) and/or second (V2 samples) visit to the general practitioner. In addition, samples from asymptomatic control subjects (V0 samples) were available. 2007/ /2009 V1 V2 V0 17 (9%) 27 (9%) 30 (15%) 43 (15%) 148 (76%)217 (76%) 1. INTRODUCTION Human rhinoviruses (HRVs) are classified into three species: HRV-A, HRV-B and HRV-C and are the leading cause of respiratory tract infections in humans. The disease outcomes associated with different HRV species and genotypes are poorly established. Several studies have documented high incidence and more severe illness caused by HRV-A and HRV-C viruses, however most of them have focused mainly on hospitalized pediatric patients during one season. Objective: To investigate HRV species prevalence, genetic diversity and circulation patterns among adults outpatients and asymptomatic individuals during the 2007/2008 and 2008/2009 winter seasons. Table 1. Seasonal distribution of HRV positive GRACE samples 2.3. Sequence analysis Phylogenetic analysis was performed with ~800 nt fragments of the VP3-VP1 genome region of 90 HRV-A, 17 HRV-B and 19 HRV-C GRACE isolates compared to respectively 71 HRV-A, 24 HRV-B and 9 HRV-C GenBank reference sequences. Neighbor-joining (NJ) trees were constructed with the MEGA4 software (Figure 3). The genetic similarity among HRV GRACE strains was determined with GeneDoc program.
