Proposed Title

Genetic variability of enteroviruses isoleted from environmental samples

Abstract

Detection of enteroviruses in naturally contamination shellfish tissue by RT-PCR and Cell Culture SDIRI Khira AND AOUNI Mahjoub Enteroviruses contaminating the environment represent a danger for public health. Therefore their detection in waters is of great importance. Sewage treatment processes, when present, are only partially effective at viral removal. Coastal discharges constantly release human enteroviruses into the marine environment. Enteroviruses are able to persist in the environment, can survive for weeks to months either in the water column or by attaching to particulate matter and accumulating in sediments. Bivalve shellfish, in the process of filter feeding, also concentrate and retain human pathogens derived from sewage contamination in the shellfish growing water. The enteroviruses are often detected in sewage and schellfish. Their capacity to multiply in cell culture and the available molecular biology (RT-PCR) tools applied to their detection, predispose them as indicators of the viral contamination of waters.
