Enterovirus A89 (EV-A89) is a novel member of the EV-A species. To date, only one full-length genome sequence (the prototype strain) has been published. Here, we report the molecular identification and genomic characterization of a Chinese EV-A89 strain, KSYPH-TRMH22F/XJ/CHN/2011, isolated in 2011 from a contact of an acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) patient(More)
BACKGROUND After being polio free for more than 10 years, an outbreak following importation of wild poliovirus (WPV) was confirmed in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, China, in 2011. METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted prior to supplementary immunization activities (SIAs), immediately after the confirmation of the WPV outbreak. In selected(More)
Human enterovirus C99 (EV-C99) is a new member of the species Enterovirus C, and although only a few EV-C99 sequences have been obtained thus far, the strain has been identified on four continents. In 2011, two EV-C99 strains were isolated from two healthy children in Xinjiang, China, and to our knowledge, this is the first finding of EV-C99 in China. The(More)
