While more studies are necessary to understand these associations and establish pathogenic mechanisms of enterovirus infections
, clear evidence of an association between enteroviruses and type 1 diabetes "opens up the possibility of developing new preventive and therapeutic strategies to fight this disease.
While the findings from this metaanalysis of observational studies cannot prove that enterovirus infection
has a causal role in pathogenesis of diabetes, the results provide additional support to the direct evidence of enterovirus infection
in pancreatic tissue of individuals with type 1 diabetes," wrote authors Wing-Chi Yeung, Dr.
Some believe that an enterovirus infection
might trigger an immune response that goes wrong, causing destruction of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.

cause a wide spectrum of diseases and are the most common cause of aseptic meningitis.
IVIG has been used for treatment of enterovirus infections
, particularly in immunocompromised patients (15), but the efficacy of IVIG might be limited for treatment of HPeV infection because of low seroprevalence in adults (8).
This report describes the results of that analysis, which indicated that, in 2007, CVB1 for the first time was the predominant enterovirus in the United States, accounting for 113 (25%) of 444 enterovirus infections
