Abstract

In our prospective cohort study, we compared the performance of nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal, and nasal swabs for the detection of influenza virus using real-time reverse transcription-PCR assay.Joint consideration of results from oropharyngeal and nasal swabs was as effective as consideration of results from nasopharyngeal swabs alone, as measured by sensitivity and noninferiority analysis
