|Sample source||Total no.||No. (%) HBoV1 mRNA+||No. (%) HBoV1 mRNA–||p value|
|Children with RTIs||133||33 (25)||100 (75)||p<0.001
|Controls (without RTIs)||28||0||28 (100)|
|Children with LRTIs||86||27 (31)||59 (69)||p = 0.02|
|Children with URTIs||47||6 (13)||41 (87)|
*HBoV1, human bocavirus 1; NPAs, nasopharyngeal aspirates; RTIs, respiratory tract infections; LRTIs, lower RTIs; URTIs, upper RTIs.
