Human enterovirus 71 (HEV71) has emerged as an important cause of viral encephalitis in the Southeast Asia over the past 15 years. A pattern of increased epidemic activity and endemic circulation of HEV71 has been observed since 1997 and is associated with the regular emergence of new genetic lineages. Although the reason for this increase in HEV71 circulation remains unknown, evidence is accumulating that recombination events may drive the evolution of new genetic lineages. Prevention of HEV71… CONTINUE READING
