three echovirus serotypes responsible for outbreak of aseptic meningitis in rhône-alpes region, france.during the year 2000 in the rhône-alpes region of france, 559 cases of aseptic meningitis due to enterovirus infection were recorded (approximate incidence, 10 cases per 100,000 population compared with a mean of 0.3 cases during endemic years in this region; p<0.001). cerebrospinal fluid samples were collected from all 559 patients and processed for enterovirus rna detection using a reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction assay only. in addition to the cerebrospinal fluid samples, 40 st ...200312649719
impaired glutamate uptake and eaat2 downregulation in an enterovirus chronically infected human glial cell line.rapid and efficient uptake of glutamate via the high-affinity glutamate transporter eaat2 is important for limiting glutamate-mediated excitotoxicity involved in neuronal death. furthermore, there is evidence of altered glutamate uptake and catabolism in motor neuron diseases. such a defect has been reported in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, the major motor neuron disease, and was associated with impairment in eaat2 processing. we recently reported the presence of enterovirus genome specifically ...200312752781
molecular typing and epidemiology of enteroviruses identified from an outbreak of aseptic meningitis in belgium during the summer of 2000.non-polio enteroviruses are the most common cause of aseptic meningitis worldwide. from may to september 2000, a major outbreak of aseptic meningitis occurred in belgium. cerebrospinal fluid samples (csf) of 122 patients were found to contain enterovirus rna using diagnostic rt-pcr that targeted a 231-bp gene fragment in the 5' noncoding region. in addition, a molecular typing method was developed based on rt-nested pcr and sequencing directly from csf(a) 358-bp fragment in the aminoterminal par ...200312767006
antiviral activity of betulin, betulinic and betulonic acids against some enveloped and non-enveloped viruses.antiviral properties of betulin, betulinic and betulonic acids were investigated in cell cultures infected with herpes simplex type i, influenza fpv/rostock and echo 6 viruses. all studied triterpenes were active against herpes simplex virus. betulin and especially betulinic acid also suppressed echo 6 virus reproduction.200312837369

assessment of an enterovirus sewage surveillance system by comparison of clinical isolates with sewage isolates from milwaukee, wisconsin, collected august 1994 to december 2002.the quantity and serotypes of enteroviruses (evs) in the influent of a local sewage treatment plant were compared to local clinical ev cases to determine if testing of sewage is adequate for an ev surveillance system. the study was carried out from august 1994 to december 2002. monthly influent specimens were processed by organic flocculation, and dilutions of concentrate were inoculated onto a number of different cell types for virus isolation. evs were detected in 88 of 100 monthly influent sa ...200314660364
analysis of the serotype and genotype correlation of vp1 and the 5' noncoding region in an epidemiological survey of the human enterovirus b species.the sequence identity of the enterovirus vp1 gene has been shown to correlate with the serotype concept. enterovirus molecular typing methods are therefore often based on sequencing of the vp1 genomic region and monophyletic clustering of vp1 sequences of a homologous serotype. for epidemiological surveillance, 342 enterovirus samples obtained from patients with aseptic meningitis in belgium from 1999 to 2002 were first diagnosed as being enterovirus positive by amplification of the 5' noncoding ...200415004039
cumulative mutations in the genome of echovirus 6 during establishment of a chronic infection in precursors of glial cells.although enteroviruses are mainly described as responsible for acute diseases, their role in severe chronic pathology has been also established. echovirus 6-like sequences have been detected by pcr analysis in central nervous system specimens from patients presenting with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. these findings suggested a persistent infection with viruses that underwent, genetic changes precluding viral particle release. to support this hypothesis, we developed a model system of echovirus ...200515744568

inhibitory activity of bovine lactoferrin against echovirus induced programmed cell death in vitro.lactoferrin is a glycoprotein and plays an important role in defence against pathogens. although the antiviral activity of lactoferrin is one of the major biological functions of such protein, the mechanism of action is still under debate. the effect of lactoferrin on echovirus 6 infection in vitro was analysed and results showed that (i) cells infected with echovirus 6, died as a result of apoptosis and that (ii) programmed cell death was inhibited by lactoferrin treatment. in this report, we d ...200515848300
epidemiological study of non-polio enterovirus neurological infections in children in the region of monastir, tunisia.the epidemiological, virological, and clinical syndromes of 86 children younger than 13 years suspected of having neurological diseases and admitted to fattouma bourguiba hospital of monastir from january 2002 to november 2003 were analyzed. the presence of enterovirus was studied in cerebrospinal fluid (csf) samples by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (rt-pcr) and by isolation on cell culture. sixty-one (71%) specimens were positive by rt-pcr, whereas 45 (52.3%) were detected by ...200616290030
enterovirus meningitis in brazil, 1998-2003.acute viral infections of the central nervous system (cns) such as acute flaccid paralysis, meningitis, and encephalitis, are responsible for a high morbidity, particularly in children. non-polio enteroviruses (npev) are known to be responsible for over 80% of viral meningitis in which the etiologic agent is identified. in the present study, we show the frequency of enterovirus meningitis in brazil from december 1998 to december 2003. enterovirus were isolated from 162 (15.8%), of a total of 1,0 ...200616299728
bovine lactoferrin peptidic fragments involved in inhibition of echovirus 6 in vitro infection.bovine lactoferrin is a multifunctional glycoprotein folded in two symmetric globular lobes (n- and c-lobes), each being able to bind one ferric ion. we have previously demonstrated that this protein is able to prevent echovirus-induced apoptosis. in the present study, we have investigated both the role of tryptic fragments of bovine lactoferrin and the mechanism of lactoferrin effect on echovirus infection. results obtained showed that bovine lactoferrin inhibits echovirus-induced cytopathic ef ...200616386316
