Treatment Options

There are no approved medicines, antiviral treatment, or vaccine for non-polio enteroviral infections. The Enterovirus Foundation is working with researchers on a global level to find a treatment that will eliminate the virus and keep enteroviruses from developing into chronic conditions.

This section includes an update on promising pharmaceutical, antiviral, and alternative medicines that, while not approved by the US Federal Drug Administration (FDA), could prove to be helpful in fighting enteroviral infections. In the next ten years, we are hopeful that the development of antiviral drugs specific for enteroviruses will make a huge impact in acute and chronic enteroviral disease.
