Definition : Serology reagents intended to detect and/or identify antigens or serum antibody titers to Enterovirus, a genus of single-stranded viruses of the family Picornaviridae that includes polio and nonpolio (e.g., coxsackieviruses, echoviruses) enteroviruses. Enteroviruses typically inhabit the intestinal tract, and most infections are subclinical; but some types may cause a wide range of diseases, including poliomyelitis (the etiologic agents are wild type polioviruses), aseptic meningitis and encephalitis (caused by several types of coxsackieviruses and echoviruses), and chronic meningoencephalitis (caused by several types of echoviruses).
