Coxsackievirus A24 (CVA24) is responsible for acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis, a highly contagious eye disease for which no prevention or treatment is currently available. We thus assessed the antiviral potential of a small interfering RNA (siRNA) targeting CVA24. HeLa cells with or without four different siRNAs complementary to 2C or 3D genome region… CONTINUE READING
