  • epidemic
  • The most important outcome of this study will be a working model of the virus in space and time that will provide critical information to local governments in the Southeastern United States regarding EEE epidemic risk under various urbanization scenarios. (epa.gov)
  • vectors
  • The mortality rate of those that develop EEE is about 33 percent, the highest among human arboviruses (a virus transmitted by arthropod vectors) cases reported in the U.S. Currently, there is no human vaccine for EEE and patients are treated with supportive care. (suffolkcountyny.gov)
  • outbreaks
  • EEE affects areas throughout North and South America, with outbreaks occurring mainly in the eastern coastal areas of the United States and Canada, the Caribbean, and Argentina. (vdci.net)
  • assay
  • The conversion of this ELISA to a monoclonal antibody-based format should result in a readily standardizable and transferable assay that will permit laboratories lacking virus isolation facilities to conduct EEE virus surveillance. (ajtmh.org)
  • surveillance
  • Surveillance of mosquito populations for virus activity is not often performed by small, vector-control districts because they do not have the financial resources to use virus isolation, or newer methods such as the polymerase chain reaction. (ajtmh.org)
  • proximity
  • Through Outbreak Alert, veterinarians around the country have been able to show their clients the proximity of equine diseases and stress the importance of vaccinating. (stablemanagement.com)
  • diseases
  • While vaccination is the best way to help protect horses from diseases such as WNV and EEE, staying informed about the threat of equine diseases can also be helpful. (stablemanagement.com)
