Rapid CDIATM EV71 kits are intended for the detection of “hand, foot, and mouth disease” by detecting EV71 antibodies.
EV71 infection is usually found among young children. It most commonly presents with symptoms of HFMD, characterized by fever, sores in the mouth, and a rash with blisters. And it is clinically indistinguishable from HFMD caused by Coxsackie virus A16 (CA16). EV71 may cause more serious diseases, such as viral (aseptic) meningitis, encephalitis, poliomyelitis-like paralysis and myocarditis. EV71 infection is transmitted from person to person by direct contact with nose and throat discharges, saliva, fluid from blisters, or the stool of infected persons.
