Lycorine reduces mortality of human enterovirus
71-infected mice by inhibiting virus replication.
Interaction of enterovirus
infection and cow's milk-based formula nutrition in type 1 diabetes-associated autoimmunity.
Additionally, all adenovirus and enterovirus
qPCR-positive samples were further evaluated for virus infectivity by cell culture [see Supplemental Material, p.
"We are monitoring any possible entrance of enterovirus
through people coming from abroad.
The genus enterovirus
belongs to the family picornaviridae comprising 66 human serotypes that are classified into 5 groups: (i) poliovirus serotypes 1-3; (if) human enterovirus
A (HEV-A), including 11 serotypes of coxsackievirus A and EV 71; (iii) human enterovirus
B (HEV-B) with 38 serotypes including all coxsackievirus B, all echoviruses, EV69, EV73, and CA9; (iv) human enterovirus
C (HEV-C), including 11 serotypes of coxsackievirus A; and (v) human enterovirus
D (HEV-D) with only 2 serotypes--EV68 and EV70.
The identification of the pathogen as enterovirus
68 is based on the nucleotide sequence of the viral DNA present in the patient, specifically the portion of the viral genome region encoding the VP1 capsid protein.
"While the findings from this metaanalysis of observational studies cannot prove that enterovirus
infection has a causal role in pathogenesis of diabetes, the results provide additional support to the direct evidence of enterovirus
infection in pancreatic tissue of individuals with type 1 diabetes," wrote authors Wing-Chi Yeung, Dr.
According to the surveillance weekly report published by Taiwan Center for Disease Control (TCDC), a peak period of enterovirus
occurred during our sampling period.
Some believe that an enterovirus
infection might trigger an immune response that goes wrong, causing destruction of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.
71, or EV71, causes Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease (or HFMD) among children.
Numbers of infected children by Enterovirus
71 have steadily increased since hospitals in Fuyang began admitting patients with fever, blisters, ulcers in the mouth, or a rash.
