Human adenoviruses species D (HAdV-D) are known to cause severe epidemic keratoconjunctivitis. However, the isolation rate of HAdV-D is not high, because HAdV-D is usually slow to propagate. Although new types of HAdV-D have been reported, accurate surveillance has not been performed because of difficulties in culturing the viruses and lack of a practical identification method. In this study, HAdV-Ds were detected and identified from patients with epidemic keratoconjunctivitis in the Fukui… CONTINUE READING
