T cells contribute to disease severity during coxsackievirus B4 infection. (1/525)

By using a model of coxsackievirus B4-induced disease, the question of whether tissue damage is due to the virus or to immune-mediated mechanisms was addressed. Both viral replication and T-cell function were implicated in contributing to the severity of disease. Three stages (I to III) of disease, which correspond to periods of high viral titers, low viral titers, and no infectious virus, have been identified. Stage I disease is considered to be primarily the result of viral replication. Immunopathological mechanisms appear to contribute to the severity of stage II and III disease. To investigate the role of T cells in contributing to the severity of disease, viral infection in CD8 knockout (ko) mice and CD4 ko mice was analyzed. CD8 T-cell responses appear to be beneficial during early, viral disease but detrimental in later disease when viral titers are diminishing. CD4 ko mice, unlike the parental strain, survived infection. Viral replication was lower in the CD4 ko mice. Was survival due to decreased viral replication or to the lack of T-helper-cell function? To investigate further the role of T helper cells in contributing to tissue damage, viral infection in two additional ko strains (interleukin-4 [IL-4] ko and gamma interferon ko strains) was examined. A clear correlation between viral replication and the outcome of infection was not observed. The absence of IL-4, which may influence T-helper-cell subset development, was advantageous during early viral disease but deleterious in later disease. The results suggest that T-cell-mediated immunity is both beneficial and detrimental during coxsackievirus B4 infection.  (+info)

Viral myocarditis: identification of five differentially expressed genes in coxsackievirus B3-infected mouse heart. (2/525)

Differences in host susceptibility to viral myocarditis caused by a given strain of coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) are known to be largely related to host genetic factors. Little is known, however, about the key genes that encode determinants (mediators) of myocarditis development or the nature of injury. To identify these genes and further understand the molecular mechanisms of the disease process, we have used a murine model and the differential display technique to fingerprint mRNAs from CVB3-infected mouse hearts. Total RNA was extracted from hearts of 4- and 10-week-old A/J(H-2(a)) mice at day 4 after CVB3 infection, and mRNAs were detected by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction and subsequently analyzed on polyacrylamide DNA sequencing gels. The differentially displayed bands were confirmed by Northern hybridization using the bands as cDNA probes. Twenty-eight upregulated or downregulated bands were selected from the sequencing gels; among these, 2 upregulated and 3 downregulated cDNA fragments were confirmed by Northern hybridization. DNA sequence analysis and GenBank searching have determined that 4 of the 5 candidate genes are homologous to genes encoding Mus musculus inducible GTPase, mouse mitochondrial hydrophobic peptide (a subunit of NADH dehydrogenase), mouse beta-globin, and Homo sapiens cAMP-regulated response element binding protein (CREB) binding protein (CBP), respectively. The remaining candidate gene matches an unpublished cDNA clone, M musculus Nip21 mRNA (GenBank accession number, AF035207), which is homologous to human Nip2, a Bcl-2 binding protein. Our data suggest preliminarily that both structural and nonstructural genes are involved in myocarditis development. For the structural gene, beta-globin, we further confirmed its downregulation at the protein level by measuring the mean cell volume of red blood cells and found it was marginally reduced in the CVB3-infected group (P<0.06), with no change in hemoglobin concentration. Cardiac myoglobin concentration was also measured and found to be decreased (P<0.005), with a parallel decrease in total soluble protein in the CVB3-infected mouse myocardium (P<0.01). We also noted that the ratio of myoglobin to total protein was not significantly changed; this may be due to the downregulation of additional genes in the host heart, a number being observed on the differential display gels. The significant downregulation of beta-globin major gene expression in the heart may be relevant to impaired cardiac function in both the early and late postinfection period. The other identified nonstructural genes are known to be involved in regulation of gene expression, signal transduction pathways, and apoptotic cell death. The altered expression of structural and nonstructural genes may play important roles in the mediation of myocarditis development and perhaps other pathological processes in the heart.  (+info)

Hormonal regulation of CD4(+) T-cell responses in coxsackievirus B3-induced myocarditis in mice. (3/525)

Coxsackievirus B3 infection causes significant cardiac inflammation in male, but not female, B1.Tg.Ealpha mice. This gender difference in disease susceptibility correlates with selective induction of CD4(+) Th1 (gamma interferon-positive) cell responses in animals with testosterone, whereas estradiol promotes preferential CD4(+) Th2 (interleukin-4 positive [IL-4(+)]) cell responses. Differences in immune deviation of CD4(+) T cells cannot be explained by variation in B7-1 or B7-2 expression. Infection significantly upregulated both molecules, but no differences were detected between estradiol- and testosterone-treated groups. Significantly increased numbers of activated (CD69(+)) T cells expressing the gammadelta T-cell receptor were found in male and testosterone-treated male and female mice. In vivo depletion of gammadelta+ cells by using monoclonal antibodies inhibited myocarditis and resulted in a shift from a Th1 to Th2 response phenotype. Taken together, our results indicate that testosterone promotes a CD4(+) Th1 cell response and myocarditis by promoting increased gammadelta+ cell activation.  (+info)

gamma delta+ T cells regulate major histocompatibility complex class II(IA and IE)-dependent susceptibility to coxsackievirus B3-induced autoimmune myocarditis. (4/525)

Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) infection induces myocardial inflammation and myocyte necrosis in some, but not all, strains of mice. C57BL/6 mice, which inherently lack major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II IE antigen, develop minimal cardiac lesions despite high levels of virus in the heart. The present experiments evaluate the relative roles of class II IA and IE expression on myocarditis susceptibility in four transgenic C57BL/6 mouse strains differing in MHC class II antigen expression. Animals lacking MHC class II IE antigen (C57BL/6 [IA+ IE-] and ABo [IA- IE-]) developed minimal cardiac lesions subsequent to infection despite high concentrations of virus in the heart. In contrast, strains expressing IE (ABo Ealpha [IA- IE+] and Bl.Tg.Ealpha [IA+ IE+]) had substantial cardiac injury. Myocarditis susceptibility correlated to a Th1 (gamma interferon-positive) cell response in the spleen, while disease resistance correlated to a preferential Th2 (interleukin-4-positive) phenotype. Vgamma/Vdelta analysis indicates that distinct subpopulations of gamma delta+ T cells are activated after CVB3 infection of C57BL/6 and Bl.Tg.Ealpha mice. Depletion of gamma delta+ T cells abrogated myocarditis susceptibility in IE+ animals and resulted in a Th1-->Th2 phenotype shift. These studies indicate that the MHC class II antigen haplotype controls myocarditis susceptibility, that this control is most likely mediated through the type of gamma delta T cells activated during CVB3 infection, and finally that different subpopulations of gamma delta+ T cells may either promote or inhibit Th1 cell responses.  (+info)

Susceptibility to myocarditis is dependent on the response of alphabeta T lymphocytes to coxsackieviral infection. (6/525)

Viral myocarditis is an important cause of heart failure and dilated cardiomyopathy. T lymphocytes are implicated in myocardial damage in murine models of coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) myocarditis. We used knockout mice lacking CD4 (CD4(-/-)), CD8 (CD8(-/-)), both coreceptors (CD4(-/-)CD8(-/-)), or the T-cell receptor beta chain (TCRbeta(-/-)) to address the contribution of T-cell subpopulations to host susceptibility to CVB3 myocarditis. Severity of disease was magnified in CD8(-/-) mice but attenuated in CD4(-/-) mice, consistent with a pathogenic role for CD4(+) lymphocytes. Elimination of both CD4 and CD8 molecules from T lymphocytes by genetic knockout better protected mice from myocarditis, demonstrating that both CD4(+) and CD8(+) T cells contribute to host susceptibility. The same benefit occurred in TCRbeta(-/-) mice, with prolonged survival and minimal myocardial disease observed after CVB3 infection. Elevated interferon-gamma and decreased tumor necrosis factor-alpha expression are associated with attenuated myocardial damage in CD4(-/-)CD8(-/-) mice. These results show that the presence of TCRalphabeta(+) T cells enhances host susceptibility to myocarditis. The severity of myocardial damage and associated mortality are dependent on the predominant T-cell type available to respond to CVB3 infection. One mechanism by which CD4(+) and CD8(+) T-cell subsets influence the pathogenesis of myocarditis may involve specific cytokine expression patterns.  (+info)

Coxsackievirus B4 myocarditis in an orangutan. (7/525)

A 37-year-old female orangutan died at the zoological garden. Autopsy examination demonstrated severe coxsackievirus B4 myocarditis immunohistochemically as a cause of the death. Apoptosis of the cardiac muscle cells was observed using the TdT-mediated dUTP-biotin nick endo labeling method and was considered to play a role in the myocarditis. Congestion of the liver and both lungs due to cardiac failure was also observed. Coxsackievirus infection is found frequently in the Okinawan human population. The present orangutan's infection might have come from visitors who were allowed to go near the orangutan. Malignant tumors, severe suppurative infections, and intestinal parasite infections were not observed. Epstein-Barr virus DNA was detected in lymph nodes, but there was no Burkitt's lymphoma.  (+info)

The role of B lymphocytes in coxsackievirus B3 infection. (8/525)

Coxsackieviruses are important human pathogens, frequently causing myocarditis, pancreatitis, and a variety of less severe diseases. B lymphocytes appear central to the interaction between these viruses and their mammalian hosts, because agammaglobulinemic humans, genetically incapable of antibody production, are susceptible to chronic infections by coxsackieviruses and related enteroviruses, such as poliovirus and echovirus. However, recent studies show that Type B coxsackievirus (CVB) infects B lymphocytes soon after infection, suggesting the possibility that these cells may play some role in virus dissemination and/or that the virus may be able to modulate the host immune response. We analyzed the role of B lymphocytes in CVB infection and confirmed that CVB infects B lymphocytes, and extended these findings to show that this is a productive infection involving approximately 1 to 10% of the cells; however, infectious center assays show that other splenocytes are infected at approximately the same frequency. Virus is readily detectable by in situ hybridization in the spleen of immunocompetent mice but is difficult to detect in mice deficient in B cells (BcKO mice), consistent with much of the splenic signal being the result of B cell infection. Surprisingly, given the extent of their infection, B cells express barely detectable levels of the murine coxsackievirus-adenovirus receptor (mCAR), suggesting that another means of cell entry may be used. We found no evidence of B cell depletion following CVB infection, indicating that this is not the explanation for the transient immunosuppression previously reported. Virus replication and dissemination are slightly delayed in BcKO mice, consistent with B cells' playing a role as an important early target of infection and/or a means to distribute the virus to many tissues. In addition, we show that BcKO mice recapitulate a central feature of human agammaglobulinemia: CVB establishes chronic infection in a variety of organs (heart, liver, brain, kidney, lung, pancreas, spleen). In most of these tissues the viral titers remain high (10(5)-10(8) plaque forming units (pfu) per gram of tissue) for the life of the mouse, and in several there is severe pathology, particularly severe myocardial fibrosis with ventricular dilation, reminiscent of the dilated cardiomyopathy seen in humans with chronic enteroviral myocarditis. Transfer of B and/or T cells from non-immune mice had no discernible effect, whereas equivalent transfers from immune mice often resulted in transient or permanent disappearance of detectable CVB.  (+info)

Infection of people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) as well as LP- BM5 infection in mice results in progressive deterioration of the immune system in the majority of untreated hosts. Peptide immunotherapy has been shown to be effective in the stimulation or immunoregulation of T-helper 1 (TH1) and T-helper 2 (TH2) response subsets. In murine acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), TH1 deficiency enables the host to be susceptible to coxsackievirus infection, inducing cardiopathology in a short period.

Hand, foot, and mouth disease is an early childhood condition most commonly caused by the coxsackievirus. This viral infection is named after its classic symptoms: small ulcers on the inside cheeks, gums, and tongue, and a red rash that can result in blisters on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet.. Coxsackievirus is easily spread from an infected person through nasal secretions, saliva, droplets in the air after a cough or sneeze, fluid from open blisters, or stool contamination. The best protection against its spread is thorough hand washing, especially after diaper changes or use of the bathroom. Breakouts of the disease are common in child care settings, preschools, and elementary schools.. Symptoms begin to appear between 3 and 7 days following exposure. The initial symptoms include fever, loss of appetite, and sore throat, followed by small blisters in the mouth and a red skin rash commonly found on the palms and soles. Treatment is aimed at relieving symptoms with fever reducers ...

Fifty patients with congestive cardiomyopathy have been studied for evidence of previous Coxsackie B virus infection and compared with age- and sex-matched controls who had been admitted to hospital for investigation of other cardiac diseases. High neutralisation titres (greater than or equal to 1024) to Coxsackie B viruses were more common among the controls. On subdividing the patients according to their length of symptomatic history before study, high titres were more common only in those with a short history (less than or equal to 1 year). High titres were more common when there had been a febrile illness at the onset of symptoms. Endomyocardial biopsies of 18 patients disclosed no evidence of myocarditis, or, in 12 cases, of viral involvement. Although the evidence remains circumstantial, these results support the theory that Coxsackie B viruses may cause congestive cardiomyopathy and encourage further research into the mechanisms of myocardial cell damage by these visuses. ...

Acute myocardial damage similar to that seen in human myocarditis occurs in BALB/c mice after infection with coxsackievirus B3 (CB3) or encephalomyocarditis virus (EMC). To investigate the role of antigen-specific T cells in the pathogenesis of this disorder, we compared CB3 disease expression in T cell-deficient, athymic nude (nu/nu) mice, in heterozygote (nu/+) mice with normal T cell function, and in nu/nu mice reconstituted with spleen cells from CB3- or EMC-infected nu/+ mice. Acute myocarditis occurred in both nu/nu and nu/+ mice. Severe myocarditis, however, developed only in nu/+ and nu/nu mice reconstituted with CB3-sensitized T cells, but not in those reconstituted with EMC-sensitized T cells. Myocardial virus titer and serum anti-CB3 antibody production were similar in nu/+ and nu/nu groups. Additionally, the presence of Thy 1.2 (pan T), Ly 1 (precursor of other T cell subsets), and Ly 2 (suppressor/cytotoxic T) positive cells was demonstrated in the myocardium in nu/+ and nu/nu mice ...
Coxsackie B4 Virus are enteroviruses that belong to the Picornaviridae family. These viruses can be found worldwide. They are positive-sense, single-stranded, non-enveloped RNA viruses with icosahedral geometry. Coxsackieviruses have two groups, A and B, each associated with different diseases. Coxsackievirus group A is known for causing hand-foot-and-mouth diseases while Group B, which contains six serotypes, can cause a varying range of symptoms like gastrointestinal distress myocarditis. Coxsackievirus B4 has a cell tropism for natural killer cells and pancreatic islet cells. Infection can lead to beta-cell apoptosis which increases the risk of insulitis. Coxsackievirus B4 is one of the six serotypes found in Group B and is a positive sense, single-stranded, non-enveloped RNA virus. Its genome is linear and is 7,293 nucleotides in length with both a 5 and 3 untranslated region and encodes its own 3 poly-A tail. The 5 untranslated region contains an internal ribosomal entry site (Type I ...
Interest in CAR stems from its function as the primary high affinity receptor for Ad serotype 5, the most commonly used adenoviral vector in gene therapy protocols. CAR expression is the main determinant in gene transfer to normal tissue as ectopic expression of CAR in transgenic mice leads to several magnitudes of increase in adenovirus transducibility of tissues that are otherwise refractory to Ad-mediated gene expression [13-17]. As well, although decay accelerating factor (DAF, CD55) was the first described CVB receptor [18, 19], CAR is necessary and sufficient for CVB infection in vitro [20]. Thus, the expression levels of CAR may also govern the susceptibility to CVB diseases and the pathological consequences of CVB viral infection. In this context, acute viral myocarditis and myositis are inflammatory diseases affecting cardiac and skeletal muscle that can result from infection by the Coxsackie B virus. In both humans and rodents, heart is among the tissues showing the greatest abundance ...

To clarify the role of TGF-β1 in myocardial healing process after virus-induced myocarditis, we have examined the time course of TGF-β1 expression and its localization in myocardial healing process after Coxsackie B3-induced murine myocarditis. TGF-β1 immunoreactivity increased in parallel with its mRNA level and reached a peak at 10 days after Coxsackie B3 virus inoculation. Immunohistochemically, TGF-β1 was localized at pre-necrotic area at an early phase (5 days); it increased and extended to the area around the necrotic foci when necrosis became manifest (10 days); it decreased when macrophages and fibroblasts migrated to the necrotic foci (15 days); and then it reached a normal level and localized a little in perivascular and calcified regions (30 days). To our knowledge, this is the first study which demonstrates that TGF-β1 mRNA increases in viral-induced myocarditis at acute inflammatory phase. This result suggests that TGF-β1 promotes the migration of macrophages and fibroblasts ...
Dilated Cardiomyopathy is a chronic myocardial disease characterized by progressive depression of contractile function and ventricular dilatation. It is the leading cause of heart failure and the most common reason for heart transplantation. Besides genetic causes, viral infection and autoimmune response are considered to play a major role in the etiology of the disease. Among different viruses that cause the disease, Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) is predominantly associated with the development and progression of the disease. Moreover, Coxsackievirus induced myocarditis in the mouse mimics human myocarditis and dilated cardiomyopathy. In the murine model, the disease progresses over a period of 90 days from acute myocarditis to chronic myocarditis and further develops into dilated cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure. Though much is known about the progression of the disease, the molecular events occurring after infection with CVB3 are not completely understood. In the current study, ...

Editorial comment: Cunningham and his associates determined whether enterovirus sequences were present in muscle biopsy specimens obtained from patients with PVFS. Two classes of probes were used: (i) so-called generic probes that were enterovirus group-specific; and (ii) probes that made it possible to determine whether virus RNA synthesis was asymmetrical (typical of cytic infection) or symmetrical (typical of defective viral RNA synthesis). Importantly, appropriate probes were used to test whether specimens also were positive for EBV sequences. Seventeen patients were studied that had fatigue for six or more months. Of these, five were mates and 13/17 were at midlife, i.e., 35-55 years of age. Then patients were tested for neutralizing antibody to Coxsackievirus B3; five were negative. Eleven patients were tested for IgM to Coxsackievirus B2, 3 and 5; of these, 10 were negative. Such results indicate that antibodies to Coxsackieviruses are not good surrogate markers for PVFS. When muscle ...

For this cause, there could be many individuals who arent conscious they have the problem. To handle this deficiency, the experts viewed whether a biomarker for swelling in the brain may be used in the center. When researchers want a obvious picture of the level of harm from a brain damage, a PET can be used by them scan to consider elevated degrees of translocator protein 18 kDa, or TSPO. As it happens that TSPO exists in immune cells through the entire body. In the scholarly study, the researchers assessed degrees of TSPO in cells biopsied from sufferers with myocarditis and in mice with myocarditis linked to contact with coxsackievirus B3-the same virus that often results in the condition in human beings.Through this new mechanism of action, we hope to offer significant therapeutic benefits to patients with anemia connected with chronic kidney disease.

Coxsackievirus is a virus that belongs to a family of nonenveloped, linear, positive-sense single-stranded RNA viruses, Picornaviridae and the genus Enterovirus, which also includes poliovirus and echovirus. Enteroviruses are among the most common and important human pathogens, and ordinarily its members are transmitted by the fecal-oral route. Coxsackieviruses share many characteristics with poliovirus. With control of poliovirus infections in much of the world, more attention has been focused on understanding the nonpolio enteroviruses such as coxsackievirus. Coxsackieviruses are among the leading causes of aseptic meningitis (the other usual suspects being echovirus and mumps virus). The entry of coxsackievirus into cells, especially endothelial cells, is mediated by Coxsackie virus and adenovirus receptor. Coxsackieviruses are divided into group A and group B viruses based on early observations of their pathogenicity in neonatal mice. Group A coxsackieviruses were noted to cause a flaccid ...
Human enteroviruses (EVs) are the most common causative agents infecting human, causing many harmful diseases, such as hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD), herpangina (HA), myocarditis, encephalitis, and aseptic meningitis. EV-related diseases pose a serious worldwide threat to public health. To gain comprehensive insight into the seroepidemiology of major prevalent EVs in humans, we firstly performed a serological survey for neutralizing antibodies (nAbs) against Enterovirus A71 (EV-A71), Coxsackie virus A16 (CV-A16), Coxsackie virus A6 (CV-A6), Coxsackie virus A10 (CV-A10), Coxsackie virus B3 (CV-B3), Coxsackie virus B5 (CV-B5), Echovirus 25 (ECHO25), and Echovirus 30 (ECHO30) among the healthy population in Xiamen City in 2016, using micro-neutralization assay ...
We have previously reported that RAS-MEK (Cancer Res. 2003 May 1;63(9):2088-95) and TGF-β (Cancer Res. 2006 Feb 1;66(3):1648-57) signaling negatively regulate coxsackie virus and adenovirus receptor (CAR) cell-surface expression and adenovirus uptake. In the case of TGF-β, down-regulation of CAR occurred in context of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT), a process associated with transcriptional repression of E-cadherin by, for instance, the E2 box-binding factors Snail, Slug, SIP1 or ZEB1. While EMT is crucial in embryonic development, it has been proposed to contribute to the formation of invasive and metastatic carcinomas by reducing cell-cell contacts and increasing cell migration.. ...
Another major physiologically relevant function of immunoproteasomes found during viral infection is a more efficient generation of viral peptides resulting in improved antigen presentation of MHC class I epitopes (Schwarz et al, 2000; Kincaid et al, 2012). Although facilitated antigen processing by the immunoproteasome is also evident for coxsackievirus peptides in vitro (Jakel et al, 2009; Voigt et al, 2010; Respondek et al, 2017), this immunoproteasome‐dependent improvement of epitope liberation has no effect on the course of CVB3 infection in vivo (Opitz et al, 2011). Interestingly as shown in this study, ONX 0914 treatment in C57BL/6 mice with hereditary resistance to viral cardiomyopathy slightly deteriorated disease parameters like viral load without affecting overall long‐term course. Such effects could be at least partially attributed to the solid T1IFN response this host induces to combat CVB3 infection (Jakel et al, 2009; Rahnefeld et al, 2011), and which was significantly reduced ...
The present study shows an inhibitory role of IRAK4 in viral myocarditis. For the first time, we reveal IRAK4 as a double-edged sword in viral myocarditis: It acts as a proinflammatory molecule but also blocks protective cell migration and antiviral responses. The ability of the host to limit viral proliferation while minimizing tissue injury attributable to detrimental proinflammatory responses, thus protecting from autoimmune postviral cardiomyopathy, is a prerequisite of favorable outcome.. IRAK4 is a well-known proinflammatory kinase downstream of all known TLRs except TLR3. It complexes with MyD88, IRAK1, IRAK2, and IRAK-M, phosphorylates IRAK1 and IRAK2, and ultimately contributes to NF-κB and mitogen-activated protein kinase activation for inflammatory cytokine transcription.5,6,16,17 Accordingly, and as reported by our group earlier, IRAK4-deficient mice showed better survival and lower heart inflammation after experimental myocardial infarction.18 In addition, we recently found that ...
How long should viral myocarditis last - I have viral myocarditis for three weeks. At my last check-up I had sinus tachycardia and ejection fraction of 26%. Im on three different meds but Im not getting better. What is the probability for full recovery? How long does it usually take? Silly patient. The best answer for your question is provided by the treating physicians, who have the benefit of your history, exam and an understanding of the tests you have had to date. While it is understandable you want answers. We have no crystal ball with great incite based on your present ejection fraction. This is a serious illness, pay attention to your docs advise and you might do well.
In this study, we demonstrated for the first time that a cardiotropic enterovirus, CVB3, transiently induced proinflammatory cytokines, IL-6 and IL-8, in human myocardial fibroblasts, a simplified but species-specific model to detect both cytokine expression and actions of cytokines.21 25 Moreover, the kinetics of CVB3-induced cytokine expression in myocardial fibroblasts was clearly divergent from dermal fibroblasts (Figure 2⇑), indicating an organ-specific pattern of induction.. Previously, the expression of IL-1β, IL-4, IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-α had been demonstrated by RT-PCR in the myocardium of patients suffering from enterovirus myocarditis, cryptogenic myocarditis, and dilated cardiomyopathy,17 18 but neither the cytokine-expressing cells (myocardial or infiltrating) nor the stimulus (virus or secondary to infiltration) had been unequivocally identified. Recently, Seko et al26 compared the cytokine expression in murine CVB3 myocarditis with that of CVB3-infected murine heart cells in ...
During fall 2008, an outbreak of hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) with onychomadesis (nail shedding) as a common feature occurred in Finland. We identified an unusual enterovirus type, coxsackievirus A6 (CVA6), as the causative agent. CVA6 infections may be emerging as a new and major cause of epidemic HFMD.
Enterovirus 71 (EV71) and Coxsackievirus A16 (CA16) are two major etiological agents of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD). EV71 is associated with severe cases but not CA16. The mechanisms contributed to the different pathogenesis of these two viruses are unknown. VP1 and VP4 are two major structural proteins of these viruses, and should be paid close attention to. The sequences of vp1s from 14 EV71 and 14 CA16, and vp4s from 10 EV71 and 1 CA16 isolated in this study during 2007 to 2009 HFMD seasons were analyzed together with the corresponding sequences available in GenBank using DNAStar and MEGA 4.0. Phylogenetic analysis of complete vp1s or vp4s showed that EV71 isolated in Beijing belonged to C4 and CA16 belonged to lineage B2 (lineage C). VP1s and VP4s from 4 strains of viruses expressed in E. coli BL21 cells were used to detect IgM and IgG in human sera by Western Blot. The detection of IgM against VP1s of EV71 and CA16 showed consistent results with current infection, while none of the sera

Disappearing signs of acute myocardial infarction in a patient with viral myocarditis: A case of acute viral myocarditis with the rapid appearance and disappear
Patients with myocarditis tend to be young and outcome can be highly variable. In this analysis, the authors show that patients with biopsy-proven myocarditis warrant close clinical follow-up, especially if abnormalities on CMR are noted. Examining survival based on the presence of LGE, the survival curves separated late (more than 1 year after presentation). Because LGE represents scar, LGE likely identifies a ventricle less likely to recover after the initial viral insult. While this is a low-powered study due to the fact that it is a single-center analysis of an uncommon disease, LGE identified 97% (28 of 29) of patients who had a cardiac death from myocarditis. However, only 28% (28 of 99) of myocarditis patients with LGE died. While CMR sensitivity for the detection of myocarditis is poor (53%), it identifies higher risk myocarditis patients. Patients with myocarditis who have LGE should be watched closely for several years. However, data are insufficient to become complacent in those ...

Human coxsackievirus A6 (CVA6) is an enterically transmitted enterovirus. Until recently, CVA6 infections were considered as being of minor clinical significance, and only rarely aetiologically linked with hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) associated with other species A enteroviruses (particularly EV71 and CVA16). From 2008 onwards, however, CVA6 infections have been associated with several outbreaks worldwide of atypical HFMD (aHFMD) accompanied by a varicelliform rash. We recently reported CVA6-associated eczema herpeticum occurring predominantly in children and young adults in Edinburgh in January and February 2014. To investigate genetic determinants of novel clinical phenotypes of CVA6, we genetically characterized and analysed CVA6 variants associated with eczema herpeticum in Edinburgh in 2014 and those with aHFMD in CAV isolates collected from 2008. A total of eight recombinant forms (RFs) have circulated worldwide over the past 10 years, with the particularly recent appearance of RF-H
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is characterized by the destruction of the insulin-producing β-cells of pancreatic islets. Genetic and environmental factors both contribute to T1D development. Viral infection with enteroviruses is a suspected trigger for T1D but a causal role remains unproven and controversial. Studies in animals are problematic because of species-specific differences in host cell susceptibility and immune responses to candidate viral pathogens such as coxsackie B virus (CVB). In order to resolve the controversial role of viruses in human T1D, we developed a viral infection model in immunodeficient mice bearing human islet grafts. Hyperglycemia was induced in mice by specific ablation of native β-cells. Human islets, which are naturally susceptible to CVB infection, were transplanted to restore normoglycemia. Transplanted mice were infected with CVB4 and monitored for hyperglycemia. Forty-seven percent of CVB4-infected mice developed hyperglycemia. Human islet grafts from infected mice

Myocarditis is mainly caused by cardiotropic viruses. In recent time viruses found in endomyocardial biopsies mainly consist of parvovirus B19 (PVB19) and human herpesvirus 6 (HHV6). A definite causal link between virus-genome detection of PVB19 and/or HHV6 (via pcr techniques)and cardiac inflammation and dysfunction is however still missing.. Primary objective:.

PEREZ, Ana C. et al. Hepatitis and coagulopathy secondary to neonatal enteroviral infection. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2009, vol.107, n.6, pp.550-553. ISSN 0325-0075.. Enteroviruses cause a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations in neonates, from asymptomatic infection to severe and fulminant, sometimes fatal disease. A septic disease is the clinical manifestation of one fourth of the cases in neonates, with multiorganic affection. Hepatitis and coagulopathy are related to bad prognosis, generally associated to catastrophic hemorrhages. In those cases, an aggressive support therapy and correct administration of platelet and clotting factor replacement is necessary. The liver, in survivors, frequently has sufficient regenerative capacity to allow normalization of hepatic function and adequate growth of the child. We present the case of a newborn who developed hepatitis and coagulopathy secondary to an enteroviral infection, with total recovery and absence of hemorrhagic complication. Her ...

Myocarditis is a common cardiac disease. It appears to be a major cause of sudden death, and may progress to chronic dilated cardiomyopathy. From the clinical point of view, there are several challenges unique to the management of patients with myocarditis. The first challenge is to establish the diagnosis of myocarditis, which is usually based on clinical, pathological, or a combination of diagnostic criteria. The second challenge is to follow the disease activity to identify patients who may be at risk of chronic dilated cardiomyopathy development, which seems to be associated with ongoing myocardial inflammation (1) and viral persistence (2).. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) has recently emerged as a noninvasive tool to diagnose myocarditis (3-6), as well as to follow its course in living patients (3,7-9). Three features potentially associated with acute myocardial inflammation may be visualized by CMR: 1) tissue edema, which may result in an elevated T2 signal; 2) capillary leakage, which ...

PY - 2006/9. Y1 - 2006/9. N2 - There is a growing consensus to recognize the role of cardiac magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the diagnosis of myocarditis. The most characteristic finding is the presence of subepicardial enhancing areas in the inferior and lateral walls in delayed-enhanced MR sequences. Segmental wall motion abnormality may be present in the myocardial segments that can be different from those exhibiting the myocardial damage in delayed enhancement sequence. These MR features provide accurate information on the type of myocardial involvement, and probably are able to assess the severity of the disease. Moreover, these MR patterns as well as others may distinguish acute myocarditis from acute myocardial infarct, both on first-pass perfusion images and on delayed-enhancement images. ...

A recent epidemic of acute conjunctivitis in Singapore showed again the importance of Coxsackie virus type A24 variant as a causative agent of acute haemorrhagic conjunctivitis (AHC). Although the ocular manifestations appeared similar to those described for the 1970 and 1975 outbreaks, a markedly higher rate of respiratory involvements was noted. Not observed in previous epidemics were herpes-like vesicles in the conjunctiva and eyelids of one patient and vesicles in the buccal mucosa and lips of another from whom Coxsackie virus A24 was isolated. The most interesting finding in this study was the isolation of five wild (non-Sabin) poliovirus type 1 strains. Three strains were obtained from conjunctival and two from throat swabs of patients with mild to severe conjunctivitis. It is conceivable that the rare reports of polio-like paralysis or radiculomyelitis accompanying or following AHC in a few Asian countries could be attributed to concurrent infections with a poliovirus and either ...

Myocarditis has an estimated incidence of 10 in 100 000 and is the most common acquired cause of cardiac failure requiring heart transplant in children.[1,2] Viruses form the main aetiological basis, with Coxsackie B virus being responsible for the majority of viral myocarditis cases.[2] The clinical presentation of myocarditis varies from mild fever, flu-like symptoms and malaise to complete cardiovascular collapse, being acute fulminant myocarditis (AFM).[3] AFM is characterised by sudden onset of severe and extensive haemodynamic compromise.[4] Complete atrioventricular heart block (CAVB) is a rare complication of myocarditis and contributes to further haemodynamic compromise.[5] Although more dramatic in its presentation, if it is managed aggressively with mechanical circulatory support, affected patients may have full recovery and less risk of developing dilated cardiomyopathy.[4] In a limited-resource setting where mechanical cardiac support is not available, immediate recognition, ...

Patient: Female 57 Final Diagnosis: Coxsackie myocarditis and hepatitis Symptoms: Fever ? headache ? general SEDC malaise ? sob. GSK1120212 and generalized malaise. Her white blood cell count was 13×103 cells/mm3. Interestingly lumbar puncture ruled out meningitis. An echocardiogram to evaluate elevated troponin revealed an GSK1120212 ejection portion of 30% with severe left ventricular global hypokinesis without valvular vegetations consistent with new-onset systolic heart failure. Cardiac MRI showed a small pericardial effusion with bilateral pleural effusion. As she continued to be febrile a viral panel was ordered exposing coxsackie B4 antibody titer of 1 1: 640 (reference: >1: 32 indicates recent contamination) with positive Epstein-Barr computer virus deoxyribonucleic acid by PCR consistent with viral myocarditis. Conclusions: Coxsackie B computer virus myocarditis is usually rarely acknowledged and reported by the general internist in clinical practice so we would like present our ...
The inflammatory heart disease myocarditis leads to dilated cardiomyopathy and has been associated with a viral aetiology. The herpesvirus cytomegalovirus induces chronic myocarditis with the development of autoimmunity. Murine models of myocarditis are now well established. Murine cytomegalovirus, a natural pathogen of mice, induces both acute and chronic phases of myocarditis in the susceptible BALB/c mouse strain. Early treatment with the antiviral drugs ganciclovir and cidofovir has been shown to reduce the severity of myocarditis. However, treatment with antivirals in the late stages of infection has limited effectiveness for prevention of the chronic phase of disease. The immunological events in the progression to this chronic cardiac disease have been recently described. New knowledge of the immunopathogenesis of myocarditis can be utilized in the development of strategic antiviral and immunotherapeutic regimes.. ...
Kids infected with enterovirus more likely to have type 1 diabetes A new research published in Diabetologia implies that children who have been infected with enterovirus are 48 percent more likely to are suffering from type 1 diabetes. The scholarly study is definitely by Dr Tsai Chung-Li, China Medical University, Taiwan, and colleagues proper dose . Type 1 diabetes is known as to be caused by complex conversation between genetic susceptibility, the disease fighting capability, and environmental elements, say the authors. Although cue for genetic predisposition has been elucidated, proof also points to involvement of enterovirus infection, including infections such as poliovirus, Coxsackievirus A, Coxsackievirus B, and echovirus. To investigate the link between EV an infection and subsequent type 1 diabetes, the researchers used nationwide population-based data from Taiwans national medical health insurance system.. ...
Recent clinical studies have reinforced the importance of sex-related differences in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases, with an increased incidence and mortality in men. Similar to humans, male BALB/c mice infected with coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) develop more severe inflammation in the heart even though viral replication is no greater than in females. We show that TLR4 and IFN-gamma levels are significantly elevated and regulatory T cell (Treg) populations significantly reduced in the heart of males following CVB3 infection, whereas females have significantly increased T cell Ig mucin (Tim)-3, IL-4 and Treg. Blocking Tim-3 in males significantly increases inflammation and TLR4 expression while reducing Treg. In contrast, defective TLR4 signaling significantly reduces inflammation while increasing Tim-3 expression. Cross-regulation of TLR4 and Tim-3 occurs during the innate and adaptive immune response. This novel mechanism may help explain why inflammatory heart disease is more severe in males.

i had this disease when i was eight, which was 1970. it lasted 2 weeks and came and went and the pain was excruciating stabbing in the back, chest and abdomen. I hallucinated and fell out of bed before my parents took me to the doctors and by that time they diagnosed me with polio. Luckily, it turned out to be Bornholm Disease. I think it may have reoccured after surgery in 2000, but i cant prove that. I had the same kind of pain and could hardly take a breath. I stood up for 4 straight hours, couldnt move and thought i was going to die. It was definitely the devils grip - you dont forget that pain. The reason I am writing you is to commiserate, of course, but more importantly because the Coxsackie B virus is now being identified in people diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Enough Fibromyalgia and CFIDS sufferers have had this virus for it to be flagged as a possible trigger for these diseases. It has taken me hours and hours of reading and researching to uncover the connection. The ...
A study has been made of the lesions produced in suckling mice by the following viruses: Powers, Matulaitis, DeMole, Kine, McCarthy, Conn. 5, Ohio R, High Point, WS No. 4, EMC, and Col. SK.. Pathologic alterations have been found in myocardium, lungs, liver, pancreas, thymus, brain and spinal cord, adipose tissue, and skeletal muscles.. A comparison of the lesions produced by the individual strains has disclosed certain differential features which are discussed in detail. Within the group of so called Coxsackie viruses, myositis has not proved to be a constant finding, and it may occur in suckling mice infected with other types of virus.. ...

Through the more recent advancements in CAD CAM a new, much more accurate, predictable workflow is now available for comprehensive cases. This does not necessarily replace a diagnostic wax up, but in many cases, it can. It involves milling of a CVB prior to fabrication of the definitive restoration. The protocol includes an intraoral try-in of a final case design prior to fabrication of the definitive restoration. By doing so, one can check intraorally all the essential design elements and parameters. A CVB is a milled PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) try-in bridge. The CVB is essentially a milled acrylic bridge that is milled from a CAD design intended to be used for the final restoration. Once the try-in is performed and evaluated, the original CVB design can be brought back to the CAD stage and altered or tweaked as needed to insure predictability and accuracy of the final restoration. Here is how it works ...

Matt has contracted viral myocarditis, probably from a patient. That means a virus has infected his heart. He will be in the hospital for a few days at least, then he will have at least 90 days off work to recover. We wont know for a long while if there is any permanent damage, but the odds are very good. Hes young, healthy, fit, a non-smoker, non-drug user, non-drinker, and hes got ridiculously resiliant genes. The only scary signs so far are that his ejection fraction is only 45% and his troponin levels keep rising. Hes getting the very best medical care (I am SO GRATEFUL we live here and not in some tiny 3rd world country - I could have lost him!!). All we can do is wait and see. Your prayers / magic / healing Qi are all appreciated. Please check back for updates ...

Autoimmunity is frequently involved in the pathogenesis of insulin-dependent diabetes, and viral infections have been implicated in some cases. We have investigated the possibility that islet cells and viruses share antigenic determinants with the result that antiviral antibodies would cross-react with islet cells. Antibody titers to Coxsackie B2, B3, B4, and B5, Influenza A and B, and mumps viruses were compared with islet cell antibody (ICA) titers in newly diagnosed insulin-dependent diabetic patients and in some diabetic patients followed prospectively for 1 yr postdiagnosis. Nondiabetic patients, with cultureproven Coxsackie B4 infections and large rises in Coxsackie B4 antibody titers, were evaluated for islet cell antibodies. No relationship between ICA and viral antibody titers was found either in diabetic or nondiabetic patients. We conclude that it is unlikely that islet cells and the viruses tested share antigenic determinants and other mechanisms relating viral infection and ...
At least three different EV-71 subgenotypes were identified from an outbreak in Malaysia in 1998. The subgenotypes C2 and B4 were associated with the severe and fatal infections, whereas the B3 virus was associated with mild to subclinical infections. The B3 virus genome sequences had ≥85% similarity at the 3 end to CV-A16. This offers opportunities to examine if there are characteristic similarities and differences in virulence between CV-A16, EV-71 B3 and EV-71 B4 and to determine if the presence of the CV-A16-liked genes in EV-71 B3 would also confer the virus with a CV-A16-liked neurovirulence in mice model infection. Analysis of human enterovirus 71 (EV-71) subgenotype B3 genome sequences revealed that the 3D RNA polymerase and domain Z of the 3-untranslating region RNA secondary structure had high similarity to CV-A16. Intracerebral inoculation of one-day old mice with the virus resulted in 16% of the mice showing swollen hind limbs and significantly lower weight gain in comparison to EV-71 B4
