Summary of "The Pathogenesis of Foot-and-Mouth Disease II: Viral Pathways in Swine, Small Ruminants, and Wildlife; Myotropism, Chronic Syndromes, and Molecular Virus-Host Interactions."

Investigation into the pathogenesis of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) has focused on the study of the disease in cattle with less emphasis on pigs, small ruminants and wildlife. 'Atypical' FMD-associated syndromes such as myocarditis, reproductive losses and chronic heat intolerance have also received little attention. Yet, all of these manifestations of FMD are reflections of distinct pathogenesis events. For example, naturally occurring porcinophilic strains and unique virus-host combinations that result in high-mortality outbreaks surely have their basis in molecular-, cellular- and tissue-level interactions between host and virus (i.e. pathogenesis). The goal of this review is to emphasize how the less commonly studied FMD syndromes and host species contribute to the overall understanding of pathogenesis and how extensive in vitro studies have contributed to our understanding of disease processes in live animals.

Poly ICLC increases the potency of a replication-defective human adenovirus vectored foot-and-mouth disease vaccine.

Foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) causes a highly contagious disease of cloven-hoofed animals. We have previously demonstrated that a replication-defective human adenovirus 5 vector carrying the FMD...

First isolation and genomic characterization of enterovirus A71 and coxsackievirus A16 from hand foot and mouth disease patients in the Lao PDR.

Enterovirus A71 (EV-A71) and coxsackievirus A16 (CV-A16) are major aetiological agents of hand, foot and mouth disease in Asia. We established the first genomic characterization of strains isolated in...

Swine interferon-induced transmembrane protein, sIFITM3, inhibits foot-and-mouth disease virus infection in vitro and in vivo.

The interferon-induced transmembrane protein 3 (IFITM3) is a widely expressed potent antiviral effector of the host innate immune system. It restricts a diversegroup of pathogenic, enveloped viruses, ...

Bovine Genome-wide Association Study for Genetic Elements to Resist the Infection of Foot-and-mouth Disease in the Field.

Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a highly contagious disease affecting cloven-hoofed animals and causes severe economic loss and devastating effect on international trade of animal or animal products. ...

Intratypic heterologous vaccination of calves can induce an antibody response in presence of maternal antibodies against foot-and-mouth disease virus.

Maternal antibodies can interfere with foot-and-mouth disease vaccination. In this study we determined whether intratypic heterologous vaccination could help to improve herd immunity.

A Multi-Center Clinical Trial To Evaluate Chinese Herbal Medicines in the Treatment of Severe Hand-foot-mouth Disease

The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of Chinese herbal medicines for severe hand-foot-mouth disease.

Assessing HIV-Related Oral Mucosal Disease and Using Saliva to Measure Viral Load

The mouth may play an important part in monitoring HIV progression. Mucosal lesions of the mouth are often the first sign of infection and their development in already diagnosed individua...

The Influence of Fortified Pomegranate Juice (Punica Granatum) on Seasonal Influenza and Swine Flu Patients

It has been shown in laboratory studies that pomegranate juice contains anti-viral action against influenza. The researchers wish to investigate the effect of pomegranate juice on patient...

Risk Factors for Foot Ulceration in the Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Population

Foot ulceration is a risk factor that has been associated with early death in patients with chronic kidney disease. Little is known about the relationship between these risk factors that d...

The Role of Naive T-Cells in HIV Pathogenesis

While HIV mainly infects mature T-cells it can also infect newly produced (or naïve) T-cells. These infected naïve T cells may then act a viral reservoir even in patients with undetectab...
