Prevalent Enteroviruses Causing Acute Hemorrhagic ConjunctivitisFrom the Jun, Min Ah Won, Jeonghyun Ahn, Ara Eun JungDepartments of Microbiology, Ophthalmology, and Biomedical Institute of Technology, University of Ulsan College of Ko, Haein Moon, Hungwon Tchah, Yoo Kyum Medicine; and 4Asan Medical Center, Seoul, Korea August Kim, and Heuiran Lee 3, 2010</p> <p>6/28/12</p> <p>PurposeTo develop a novel small interfering RNA-based anti-AHC agent effective against both EV70 and CVA24.</p> <p>6/28/12</p> <p>MethodologyConcurrent CAPSID program screening identified of five the entire viral siRNA genome sequences of EV70 and CVA24 using the different candidates complementary to genome regions of both viruses. The antiviral potentials of these siRNAs were assessed by treating MRC5 and primary human conjunctival cells with the siRNAs and following this with viral challenge.</p> <p>6/28/12</p> <p>v</p> <p>Data were explored by ANOVA making use of the SPSS</p> <p>program and were next compared using the paired ttest or descriptive statistics</p> <p>6/28/12</p> <p>ResultAmong the five siRNAs, AHCe-3D-3 siRNA showed excellent cytoprotective effects and dramatic decreases in virus replication and virus protein synthesis. This siRNA, targeting the virus polymerase 3D gene, also induced similar antiviral effects in primary human conjunctival cells.</p> <p>6/28/12</p> <p>ConclusionThe AHCe-3D-3 siRNA can provide equivalent antiviral activities against enterovirus 70 and coxsackievirus A24. Such an siRNA may be developed as a clinically valuable AHC control agent.</p> <p>6/28/12</p> <p>6/28/12</p>
