To study the serological prevalence of Coxsackie virus
in acute pericarditis and myocarditis in a Tertiary Centre.
Dwyer also notes that a particular Coxsackie virus
(a denizen of the intestinal tract) can trigger off immunological attacks.
DISCUSSION: Hand-Foot-Mouth disease is an acute highly contagious disease caused by several enteroviruses, such as coxsackie virus
A6, A10, A16 and enterovirus 71.
The most common cause of the disorder is a viral infection, usually with the coxsackie virus
This is really just the tip of the iceberg, because if you do not have Candida or cytomegalovirus (CMV) or Coxsackie virus
or chlamydia or Lyme disease, odds are that you will acquire something else such as a parasite.
dagger]) The following viruses were tested for herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1, HSV-2, varicella-zoster virus (HSV-3), Epsetin-Barr virus (human herpesvirus [HHV] type 4), cytomegalovirus (HHV-5), (HHV-6), HHV-7, HHV-8, dengue virus, Japanese encephalitis virus, rubella virus, West Nile virus, yellow fever virus, tick-borne encephalitis virus, Nipah virus, measles virus, mumps virus, parainfluenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus, metapneumovirus, Chikungunya virus, Sindbis virus, Semliki Forest virus, eastern equine encephalitis virus, western equine encephalitis virus, poliovirus, Coxsackie virus
, echovirus, enterovirus, lyssaviruses, and Chandipura virus.
The result of throat culture was normal so nasopharyngeal swab was taken for microscopic inspection and tularemia, Coxsackie virus
A-B and adenovirus IgM and IgG antibodies and diphtheria toxin were prospected.
Conjunctivitis epidemics in Dar es Salaam have been due to enteroviruses 70 (EV-70), coxsackie virus
A24, adenoviruses and gonococcal ophthalmia, (4) which cause photophobia, watering, foreign body sensation, eyelid oedema, conjunctival haemorrhages and superficial punctuate keratitis (acute haemorrhagic conjunctivitis).
Determination of virus-induced cytopathogenic effects and virus titres revealed that EPs [R] 7630 at concentrations up to 100 [micro]g/ml interfered with replication of seasonal influenza A virus strains (H1N1, H3N2), respiratory syncytial virus, human coronavirus, parainfluenza virus, and coxsackie virus
but did not affect replication of highly pathogenic avian influenza A virus (H5N1), adenovirus, or rhinovirus.
In 1987, she was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy caused by a Coxsackie virus
Studies for serologic markers of viral hepatitis revealed no acute or chronic infection with cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, herpes simplex virus, coxsackie virus
, or hepatitis A, B, or C viruses.
