Detection of Aichi virus in South Korea

Detection of Aichi virus in South Korea Aichi virus (AiV) is considered to be a possible etiologic agent of acute gastroenteritis (GE). We analyzed 1,568 stool samples collected by the Seoul Metropolitan Health Research Center from patients with GE during outbreaks in Seoul, together with 378 archived common-enteric-virus-negative stool samples from children with GE hospitalized at a tertiary hospital in Seoul. AiV was detected in 1.7 % (27/1,568) of the first group but not found in the second group (0 %, 0/378). Genotypes A and B of AiV were both detected in this study. This is the first study confirming the circulation of AiV in Korea. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Virology Springer Journals

Abstract

Aichi virus (AiV) is considered to be a possible etiologic agent of acute gastroenteritis (GE). We analyzed 1,568 stool samples collected by the Seoul Metropolitan Health Research Center from patients with GE during outbreaks in Seoul, together with 378 archived common-enteric-virus-negative stool samples from children with GE hospitalized at a tertiary hospital in Seoul. AiV was detected in 1.7 % (27/1,568) of the first group but not found in the second group (0 %, 0/378). Genotypes A and B of AiV were both detected in this study. This is the first study confirming the circulation of AiV in Korea.
