Summary, in English

The introduction of a mollecular method to identify the Entoviruses based on the amplification sequecing and phylogenetic analysis of protein VPI was described. It was proved that this method reduces significantly the time required for the identification of the isolated Entoviruses and that it is very useful in the characterization of isolates which are difficult to typify by the routine immunoloigical reagents. As it is a very fast technqiue, its use is very important during epidemics to determine the causal agent rapidly.
