Generally, laboratory diagnosis of viral respiratory infections utilizes virus isolation in cell culture and immunofluorescence assays. In this study, three cell lines (HEp-2, NCI-H292 and HeLa-I) were used for HRSV isolation of strains obtained from patients admitted at HU-USP with respiratory tract disease. HRSV was isolated in 46% (37) of 80 specimens inoculated in HeLa-I, 48% (39) in HEp-2, and 36.3% (29) in NCI-H292. Immunofluorescence was considered the gold standard and yielded 53% positive (43). The results from both methods combined had better sensitivity (73.2%) compared to either method alone. Comparing results between the cell lines with HEp-2 cells as the benchmark, the greatest sensitivity (72.2%) was observed in HeLa-I. This data shows that HeLa-I is adequate for HRSV isolation, giving results similar to the HEp-2 cells. The combined use of the HEp-2, HeLa-I and NCI-H292 cells improve the detection of HRSV.
