Cold Doesn't Affect The "Common Cold" In Study Of Rhinovirus Infections

Abstract

A new study of the common cold suggests that even if the title "common" still applies, "cold" is something of a misnomer. Effects of cold exposure on experimental rhinovirus infection were studied in 43 volunteers. Examination of data on cold-exposed volunteers and controls revealed no differences between them which would suggest an effect of cold on the common cold. The study, reported at the Southern Section meeting of the American Federation for Clinical Research in New Orleans, was initiated at the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases by three investigators. Two members of the team are now in the Department of Microbiology, Baylor University College of Medicine, Houston. R.G. Douglas, Jr., MD, Baylor University, reported the findings. His colleagues, R.B. Couch, MD, now an associate professor at Baylor, and K.M. Lindgren, MD, who continues his work at NIH, also attended the meeting. Since earlier studies on chilling and the
