Gastrointestinal Infections (GIIs)
BriefHand-foot-and-mouth disease is a common childhood disease caused by enteroviruses. Most of the patients will have a fever and get vesicle rash in the mouth or on the hand and foot. A few patients will get cephalomeningitis, cerebritis, neurogenic pulmonary edema and myocarditis, etc. Some patients may get sequelae of this disease or even death. The viruses that can cause hand-foot-and-mouth disease include Coxsackievirus, new-type enterovirus and ECHO virus, of which the most common types are Coxsackievirus A16 and Enterovirus 71. The laboratory diagnosis methods mainly include virus isolation, nucleic acid detection, etc. The Enterovirus/Coxsackievirus A16/Enterovirus 71 RNA Diagnostic Kit (PCR-Fluorescence Probing) is intended to detect Enterovirus, Coxsackievirus A16 and Enterovirus 71 in throat swab by applying real-time quantitative PCR technique. The detection results can be used to distinguish Coxsackievirus A16 and Enterovirus 71.
