Xiyanping injection therapy for children with mild hand foot and mouth disease: a randomized controlled trial. J Tradit Chin Med. 2017 Jun;37(3):397-403 Authors: Zhang G, Hou Y, Li Y, He L, Tang L, Yang T, Zou X, Zhu Q, Yan S, Huang B, Zhao J, Huang J Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical effects of Xiyanping injection intervention in pediatric patients with mild hand foot and mouth disease (HFMD). METHODS: A total of 329 patients were stratified and block-randomized for symptomatic treatment of HFMD and assigned to one of the following groups: Western Medicine (group A, n = 103), Xiyanping injection (group B, n = 109), or Xiyanping injection and symptomatic treatment using Western Medicine (group C, n = 117). During the trial, fever, rash, ulcers of the mouth were observed among participants in each group before and after treatment, and conversion rates from mild to severe HFMD were measured. RESULTS: After 3-7 days' treatment, no significant differences in the conversion rates from mild to severe HFMD were observed among the three groups (P> 0.05). There was a significantly low number of patients with the onset time of antifebrile effect, vanished time of hand and foot rashes and cumulative time for the ulcers in the mouth vanished, among the three groups (P

The finding of reasonably consistent spatial and temporal productions of actions across different body parts has been used to argue in favor of the existence of a high-order representation of motor programs. In these terms, a generalized motor program consists of an abstract memory structure apt to specify a class of non-specific instructions used to guide a broad range of movements (e.g., “grasp,” “bite”). Although a number of studies, using a variety of tasks, have assessed the issue of effector independence in terms of action execution, little is known regarding the issue of effector independence...

In this study, we investigated the antiviral effect of salvianolic acid B (SalB) on EV71. SalB is a major component of the Salvia miltiorrhiza root and has been shown to be an effective treatment for subarachnoid hemorrhages, and myocardial infarctions. HeLa cells were cultured in 12-well plates and treated with SalB (100 or 10 μg/mL) and 106 PFU/mL of EV71. SalB treatment (100 µg/mL) significantly decreased the cleavage of the eukaryotic eIF4G1 protein and reduced the expression of the EV71 capsid protein VP1. In addition, SalB treatment showed a dramatic decrease in viral infection, measured by immunofluorescenc...

In this study, the vp1 gene of Enterovirus 71 (EV71) and Coxsackievirus B3 (CB3) was inserted into the vector pET22b (+) to form the respective expression plasmids pEVP1 or pCVP1, and then transformed into Escherichia coli strain BL21 (DE3). The recombinant EVP1 or CVP1 protein was overexpressed successfully and effectively purified to homogeneity. Then, we identified that EVP1 and CVP1 protein could generate effectively specific humoral immunity and cellular immunity in mice, what's more, we determined the cross-protection of VP1 between EV71 and CB3 in a murine model. The results showed that immunization with EVP1 could ...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Coxsackievirus A6 (CA6) infection may lead to high hand-foot-and-mouth disease (HFMD) aggregation in children. We aimed to analyze the clinical and phylogenetic features of severe CA6-associated pediatric HFMD. METHODS: The clinical and laboratory features of 206 and 55 children with mild and severe CA6-associated HFMD, respectively, were summarized. The CA6 phylogenetic tree was depicted using combinatorial analysis of the VP1-encoding regions and neighbor-joining method. RESULTS: CA6 was the major pathogen both in mild and severe HFMD in 2017. Most CA6-associated severe HFMD cases ...

Human enterovirus A71 (HEVA71) causes hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) in young children and is considered a major neurotropic pathogen but lacks effective antivirals. To identify potential therapeutic agents against HFMD, we screened a 502-compound flavonoid library for compounds targeting the HEVA71 internal ribosome entry site (IRES) that facilitates translation of the HEVA71 genome and is vital for the production of HEVA71 viral particles. We validated hits using cell viability and viral plaque assays and found that prunin was the most potent inhibitor of HEVA71. Downstream assays affirmed that prunin disrupted vir...
