A real-time RT-PCR assay for rapid detection of coxsackievirus A10

C. Y. Mu, Wang, A. Y., Chen, C., Zhao, L., and Li, Z., A real-time RT-PCR assay for rapid detection of coxsackievirus A10, vol. 14, pp. 17496-17504, 2015.

Enterovirus 71 (EV71) and coxsackievirus A16 (CA16) have been the primary causative agents of hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) outbreaks in mainland China in the past. Hence, the surveillance of HFMD has mostly focused on these viruses. However, in recent years, coxsackievirus A10 (CA10) has also been associated with the increasing sporadic HFMD cases and outbreaks. Therefore, a sensitive assay for rapid detection of the CA10 RNA is necessary for disease control.
