Picornavirus Cellular Remodeling: Doubling Down in Response to Viral-Induced Inflammation.
Published Web Locationhttps://doi.org/10.1007/s40588-020-00138-4
Purpose of reviewTo highlight recent findings on how picornavirus infections of the airways and cardiac tissues impact cellular inflammation and remodeling events.
Recent findingsRecent published work has revealed that although many picornavirus infections appear to be initially asymptomatic, there are significant disease sequelae that result from chronic or persistent infections and the long-term, pathogenic effects on host tissues.
SummaryBecause many acute picornavirus infections are asymptomatic, it is difficult to diagnose these pathologies at the early stages of disease. As a result, we must rely on preventative measures (i.e., vaccination) or discover novel treatments to reverse tissue damage and remodeling in affected individuals. Both of these strategies will require a comprehensive knowledge of virus-and cell-specific replication determinants and how these processes induce pathogenic effects in infected cells and tissues.
