    Luis Sarmiento Pérez
    Instituto de Medicina Tropical Pedro Kouri, Ciudad de La Habana, Cuba
    Rev Cubana Med Trop 59:98-101. 2007
    ..In spite of the selectivity of this cell line for polioviruses (117/129; 90.7%) some other nonpolio enteroviruses (12/129: 9.3%), such as coxsackie A virus types 4, 8 and 10, can grow in L20B cells...

    Luis Sarmiento
    Department of Virology, Pedro Kouri Tropical Medicine Institute, Havana, Cuba
    J Med Virol 84:1049-53. 2012
    ..The findings suggest that HEV may be a shared environmental factor for the development of islet and gut-related autoimmunity...
  3. pmc First epidemic of echovirus 16 meningitis in Cuba
    L Sarmiento
    Pedro Kouri Tropical Medicine Institute, Havana, Cuba
    Emerg Infect Dis 7:887-9. 2001
    ..Virologic studies identified echovirus 16 as the cause of this epidemic. This is the first reported isolate of echovirus 16 from patients with viral meningitis in Cuba...

    P Mas Lago
    Pedro Kouri Institute for Tropical Medicine, Havana, Cuba
    Int J Epidemiol 30:1029-34. 2001
    ..At issue is the theoretical risk of independent circulation of potentially virulent OPV-derived strains. Because Cuba uses OPV only in mass campaigns, it represents an ideal site to assess vaccine-derived poliovirus persistence...

    Med Hypotheses 56:339-47. 2001
    ..We propose that the viral agents produce a persistent infection, and the possibility that they may act as mediator of an autoimmune pathogenic process...
