Overview of National Adenovirus Type Reporting System (NATRS)

The National Adenovirus Type Reporting System (NATRS) is a passive laboratory-based surveillance system that coordinates reporting of laboratory detections of human adenovirus types in the United States. CDC encourages participating laboratories to report typed human adenovirus detections accompanied by limited demographic, clinical, and laboratory data. Human adenovirus type-based surveillance data may be used to determine patterns of circulation for individual human adenovirus types, assist with the recognition and documentation of outbreaks associated with circulating types, and to inform diagnostic and surveillance activities by clinicians and public health practitioners.
