Neutralizing Antibodies to Enterovirus 71 in Belém, Brazil

Abstract: Non-polio enteroviruses (Coxsackievirus A, Coxsackievirus B, At the beginning of this century, motor deficiency cases could be related to pathogens such as viruses and particularly to polioviruses, which belong to the enterovirus (EV) genus, Picornaviridae family. Besides the poliovirus (3 serotypes), EV includes Coxsackievirus A (23 serotypes: types 1-17, 19-22 and 24), Coxsackievirus B (6 serotypes), Echovirus (30 serotypes): 1-7, 9, 11-27, 29-33), and EV 68-72 (Wiedbrank & Johnston 1993).Enteroviruses are … Show more

“…Our investigations revealed an endemic spread of CA16 and EV71 infections in Germany similar to other parts of the world [34,40,41]. The EV71 NtAb assay used for this study detects speciWc antibodies regardless of the genogroup (antigenic cross-reactivity) [42].…”

“…Meningitis, encephalomyelitis, and neurogenic pulmonary oedema [4] may be involved in rare cases, which may cause serious sequelae or death [5]. EV71 seroepidemiological studies were conducted in Germany [6], Brazil [7], Singapore [8], Taiwan [9,10], and several cities in mainland China, such as Shanghai, Shenzhen [11], Henan [12], and Handan. Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong, presents high population mobility in Southern China; Guangzhou residents, especially children, may be highly susceptible to EV71.…”

“…In Brazil, few studies have been published on the detection of neutralizing antibodies to EV71; in particular there is concern about its involvement in acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) after poliovirus eradication, which is found concentrated in the city of Belém, in the Northern region of the country 2,7 . As limited information is available about the level of immunity against EV71 in São Paulo State, in the country´s Southeastern region -especially after the Asian outbreaks -serological data from 1999-2005 are presented in this study.…”

“…The first study, conducted in 1998, showed that 59.2% of the children tested positive to EV71 antibodies, although the seropositivity decreased with age from 45.4% in children < three years to 10.9% in children aged 12-15 years 7 . The second study, carried out between 1998 and 2001, presented 57.1% of seropositivity to EV71, but only 20.2% for children < three years 2 .…”
