    ..063, Student's t-test). The results enabled elucidation of the molecular mechanism of ISG15 over-expression against JEV, which will be useful for developing a novel treatment to combat JEV infection. ..

    ..These findings support the notion that G6PD status, and thus redox balance, is an important determinant of enteroviral infection. ..
  3. Huang M, Chiang P, Luo S, Liou G, Lee M. Development of a high-throughput assay for measuring serum neutralizing antibody against enterovirus 71. J Virol Methods. 2010;165:42-5 pubmed publisher
    ..In the quantitative comparison, the correlation coefficient between Nt-EIA and Nt-CPE was 0.91 after log transformation. Overall, the Nt-EIA is a suitable alternative assay for the quantitation of EV71 neutralizing antibody to EV71. ..

    ..It is concluded that allophycocyanin possesses antiviral activity and has a potential for development as an anti-enterovirus 71 agent. ..

    ..Our results suggest that it is the antiapoptotic, rather than the antiviral, effect of cellular bcl-2 which plays a role in the establishment of JEV persistence. ..
  6. Liao Y, Inaba Y, Li N, Chain C, Lee S, Liou P. Epidemiology of bovine ephemeral fever virus infection in Taiwan. Microbiol Res. 1998;153:289-95 pubmed
    ..We have tried to advise farmers that they must vaccinate their cattle annually to prevent BEF outbreak in the future...
  7. Chen G, Huang J, Lo Y, Tsao K, Chang S. Mosaic genome structure of echovirus type 30 that circulated in Taiwan in 2001. Arch Virol. 2007;152:1807-17 pubmed
    ..Recombination analysis of these two E30 genomes revealed that their genome structures are mosaic, which might have been formed gradually and frequently over time...

    ..Overall, the findings in this study suggest that ATA is able to effectively inhibit EV71 replication through interfering with the viral 3D polymerase. ..
