Sorry, no etymologies found.
To look for cardioviruses in humans, the authors employed a chip containing genetic sequences from all publicly available viral sequences.
Enteric cardioviruses are known to cause severe illness in rodents, but previous evidence of human infection was limited to a few historical isolates, including Saffold virus, a cardiovirus isolated from an infant in 1981.
In rodents, cardioviruses are known to cause neurological disease and, although the authors found no cardioviruses in ∼ 400 human cerebrospinal fluid samples, they suggest that humans can carry a diverse group of viruses in the gastrointestinal tract that could be linked to enteric and extraintestinal disease.
