We analysed natural recombination in 79 Human enterovirus A strains representing 13 serotypes by sequencing of VP1, 2C and 3D genome regions. The half-life of a non-recombinant tree node in coxsackieviruses 2, 4 and 10 was only 3.5 years, and never more than 9 years. All coxsackieviruses that differed by more than 7 % of the nucleotide sequence in any(More)
The full coding sequences of two novel human enterovirus (HEV)-C serotypes 105 and 116, sampled in the Republic of the Congo in 2010 and in Russia in 2011, were identified in this study. Enterovirus (EV)-105 was closest to EV-104 in the 5' NTR and to EV-109 in the coding genome region. It had the same unconventional 5' NTR as EV-104 and EV-109. The(More)
Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is an emerging human pathogen causing massive epidemics of hand, foot and mouth disease with severe neurological complications in Asia. EV71 also circulates in Europe, however it does not cause large outbreaks. The reason for distinct epidemiological patterns of EV71 infection in Europe and Asia and the risk of EV71 epidemic in Europe(More)
By May 18, 1998, 108 HIV-infected persons were registered in the Far-Eastern region. In recent years young people using narcotic drugs were involved in the epidemic process. The sources of the infection were mainly migrants arriving to the Far East from the Ukraine. HIV-infected persons also were registered in settlements lying north of the Arctic Circle.
A review of recent publications on epidemiology and seroepidemiology of enterovirus type 71 in various regions of the world and authors' own results of study of seroepidemiology and molecular epidemiology of EV71 in Russia are presented.
Parasitological examination of the population of the Amur Region has revealed that the nanophyetiasis foci affecting as high as 28.4% of the people are being preserved and functioning now; at the same time the highest rates of infection with the trematode Nanophyetus salmincola schikhobalowi are seen in the dwellers of the populated areas situated on the(More)
For the first time the etiological structure of viral hepatitis in the Far East, in Khabarovsk, has been studied. The leading etiological form of viral hepatitis is hepatitis A. The spread of hepatitis B and nondifferentiated hepatitis is less than that of hepatitis A. The ratio of different etiological forms of virus hepatitis is determined by the(More)
611 patients with acute parenteral virus hepatitis (VH) were studied with a view to find out markers indicating the presence of hepatitis B and hepatitis C virus infection (HB, HC, HB + C, HC + HBsAg). Of these, 166 patients (27.2%) systematically used narcotic drugs intravenously. Essential differences between drug users and VH patients without drug(More)
