Enterovirus Workshop

Enteroviruses cause significant public health problems. Over 100 non-polio enteroviruses have been identified, and non-polio enteroviruses cause a wide range of diseases with various levels of disease severity including conjunctivitis, hand-foot- and mouth disease (HFMD), meningitis and encephalitis, paralytic disease, myocarditis, neonatal sepsis and severe respiratory disease. Recently, atypical enteroviruses have emerged/re-emerged and may be associated with clusters of severe disease in children

Critical gaps in our knowledge include:

a) what are important enterovirus reservoirs,

b) what are the factors influencing viral evolution, virulence and pathology,

c) does virus adaptation affect the natural history of clinical disease, and

d) can antiviral therapies or vaccines be developed to treat enteroviral infections or prevent outbreaks

Objectives:

To stimulate discussion on the nature of recurring enterovirus outbreaks, the type of acute and chronic symptoms caused by enteroviruses, and means to predict and control enterovirus outbreaks. This workshop will bring together clinicians and basic scientists working on different aspects of enterovirus research to share information and identify opportunities and areas for future collaborations.
