  • polymerase chain re
  • An increase also was noted in detections of rhinovirus/enterovirus by a multiplex polymerase chain reaction assay in nasopharyngeal specimens obtained during August 5-19. (cdc.gov)
  • EV68
  • Unlike all other enteroviruses, EV68 displays acid lability and a lower optimum growth temperature, both characteristic features of the human rhinoviruses. (wikipedia.org)
  • acute
  • Enteroviruses appear to be the most common viral cause of myopericarditis and account for at least half of all cases of acute myopericarditis. (medscape.com)
  • islet
  • Detection of enteroviruses in stools precedes islet autoimmunity by several months: possible evidence for slowly operating mechanisms in virus-induced autoimmunity, Hanna Honkanen et al. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • strain
  • This strain of enterovirus seems unusually provocative in irritating lower airways, thereby causing airway narrowing. (dictionary.com)
  • The first oncolytic virus approved by a national regulatory agency is genetically not modified ECHO-7 strain enterovirus RIGVIR, approved in Latvia in 2004 for treatment of skin melanoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • diseases
  • Enterovirus 71 (EV-71) is notable as one of the major causative agents for hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD), and is sometimes associated with severe central nervous system diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • causes
  • As clinical signs are fairly nonspecific and bovine enterovirus is ubiquitous in cattle populations, other causes of disease must be ruled out before diagnosing enterovirus as the cause of disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • genome
  • All enteroviruses contain a genome of approximately 7,500 bases and are known to have a high mutation rate due to low-fidelity replication and frequent recombination. (wikipedia.org)
  • disease
  • The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that almost all of the enterovirus cases reported in 2014 occurred in children. (healthcentral.com)
  • Since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention doesn't require hospitals and labs to report enterovirus D68, public health officials may never know the true scope of the outbreak, said ABC News Chief Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser. (go.com)
  • In August 2014, enterovirus D68 caused clusters of respiratory disease in the United States. (wikipedia.org)
  • cases
  • Although UH has not yet determined how many cases of enterovirus D68 it treated this summer, Hoyen said she can extrapolate the number of extra ICU patients over two months to guess how many children had less-severe cases, too. (go.com)
  • So although the CDC is reporting 97 confirmed enterovirus cases, this number does not in any way reflect the true number of people who are infected or sick," Besser said, adding that most local health departments have no way of testing for the virus and no reason to do so because there is no cure available. (go.com)
  • Severe cases of enterovirus D68 may require supplemental oxygen, albuterol and ventilators to support breathing. (reference.com)
  • Cases have been described to occur late in the enterovirus season (roughly the period of time between the spring equinox and autumn equinox), which is typically during August and September in the Northern Hemisphere. (wikipedia.org)
  • children
  • Young children with asthma or other breathing problems can have serious breathing problems develop when infected with this enterovirus. (medicinenet.com)
  • Dr. Claudia Hoyen said the virus, called enterovirus D68, probably affected thousands of children -- and that's just in Cleveland, where she works. (go.com)
  • The rare enterovirus starts out like the common cold but can quickly turn more serious -- especially in children with asthma. (go.com)
  • The respiratory virus Enterovirus D68 has now been confirmed to have made more than a dozen children ill in Alberta. (cbc.ca)
  • Parents who have young children with asthma are being advised to ensure their child's condition is controlled to avoid contact with respiratory virus enterovirus D68 (EV-D68). (huffingtonpost.ca)
