Enteric Viruses in Surface Waters from Argentina: Molecular and Viable-Virus Detection

Abstract: Water resources contaminated with wastewater are an important source for the dissemination of enteric viruses with an impact on the health of the population. The aim of the study was to assess the viral contamination of freshwater from a dam in Argentina by using infectious enterovirus detection, viral RNA amplification, and a genetic characterization of five enteric viruses associated with diarrhea and hepatitis. Enterovirus infectivity (iEV) was evaluated by cell culture and direct immunofluorescence. The de… Show more

“…However, our results are higher than those obtained by El-Senousy et al (2007) and 2014, who detected AstV (8%) and NoV (6.9%) of Nile water in Egypt (El-Senousy et al, 2007 and. In a study from Argentina, group A rotavirus, AstV, and NoV were detected in 52.1%, 50%, and 60.4% of freshwater samples, respectively (Masachessi et al 2018). Another report of AstV, NoV GI, NoV GII, and group A rotavirus incidence on Seine River in France are already described by Prevost et al (2015), with 36%, 88%, 92% and 57% of positivity in water samples, respectively.…”

“…Studies about environmental HEV detection in South America are scarce. Only 4 studies, performed in Argentina, Brazil and Colombia, have searched the virus on environmental samples (Table ) . In all studies HEV‐3 was found and the subtypes described belonged to clade 3abchij.…”
