Ayouni is currently a PhD student at the National Reference Center for Enteric Viruses
MSC has been used effectively as surrogates of sewage-borne enteric viruses
and NoV (Dore & Lees 1995, Dore et al.
are extremely infectious, with the infectious dose for HAV and NoVs estimated to be around 10 - 100 infectious viral particles.
A multiplex reverse transcription-PCR method for detection of human enteric viruses
Development of molecular techniques for direct detection of enteric viruses
in marine monitoring programs is continuing (Green & Lewis 1999, Guyader et al.
Elimination of human enteric viruses
during conventional wastewater treatment by activated sludge.
Acute infantile gastroenteritis associated with human enteric viruses
The wells were also tested for Campylobacter, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, and human enteric viruses
Many of the enteric viruses
of public health concern in drinking water are not culturable, or are cultured only with difficulty and inefficiently in host cells, so other methods have been sought to detect them in water samples.
A wide range of enteric viruses
are capable of causing human illnesses, These viruses include rotaviruses, Norwalk and other caliciviruses, enteric adenoviruses, astroviruses, and coronaviruses.
He maintains a major research program on rotavirus and other enteric viruses
6 was also detected; in the other 2 samples, the enteric viruses
tested for were not detected.
The log removal for Cryptosporidium from chlorine disinfection was assumed to be zero, whereas the log removal for Giardia and enteric viruses
was estimated from chlorine concentration time (CT) values collected in Davenport.
Nearly constant shedding of diverse enteric viruses
by two healthy infants.
When human sewage is discharged into waterways that serve as sources of domestic drinking water, the detection of the same enteric viruses
in the water supply and in humans is sufficient evidence to prove that the presence of the former caused the presence of the latter.
