The virus appeared in North America for the first time in 1999. It is transmitted mainly by CULEX spp mosquitoes which feed primarily on birds, but it can also be carried by the Asian Tiger mosquito, AEDES albopictus, which feeds mainly on mammals.West Nile Fever: A mosquito-borne viral illness caused by the WEST NILE VIRUS, a FLAVIVIRUS and endemic to regions of Africa, Asia, and Europe. Common clinical features include HEADACHE; FEVER; maculopapular rash; gastrointestinal symptoms; and lymphadenopathy. MENINGITIS; ENCEPHALITIS; and MYELITIS may also occur. The disease may occasionally be fatal or leave survivors with residual neurologic deficits.

Serum dilution neutralization test for California group virus identification and serology. (1/166)

The serum dilution neutralization test was evaluated for serological diagnosis of California group arbovirus infections and identification of virus isolates. The technical advantages and the degree of subtype specificity of the serum dilution neutralization test over the hemagglutination inhibition test and the complement fixation test were demonstrated with paired specimens from human cases, single human survey sera, and sentinel rabbit sera. Twenty-one virus isolates from various geographical areas of the United States were also used to evaluate the efficacy of the serum dilution neutralization test for specific virus identification.  (+info)

Mechanisms of arthropod transmission of plant and animal viruses. (2/166)

A majority of the plant-infecting viruses and many of the animal-infecting viruses are dependent upon arthropod vectors for transmission between hosts and/or as alternative hosts. The viruses have evolved specific associations with their vectors, and we are beginning to understand the underlying mechanisms that regulate the virus transmission process. A majority of plant viruses are carried on the cuticle lining of a vector's mouthparts or foregut. This initially appeared to be simple mechanical contamination, but it is now known to be a biologically complex interaction between specific virus proteins and as yet unidentified vector cuticle-associated compounds. Numerous other plant viruses and the majority of animal viruses are carried within the body of the vector. These viruses have evolved specific mechanisms to enable them to be transported through multiple tissues and to evade vector defenses. In response, vector species have evolved so that not all individuals within a species are susceptible to virus infection or can serve as a competent vector. Not only are the virus components of the transmission process being identified, but also the genetic and physiological components of the vectors which determine their ability to be used successfully by the virus are being elucidated. The mechanisms of arthropod-virus associations are many and complex, but common themes are beginning to emerge which may allow the development of novel strategies to ultimately control epidemics caused by arthropod-borne viruses.  (+info)

El Nino and arboviral disease prediction. (3/166)

Recent El Nino events have stimulated interest in the development of modeling techniques to forecast extremes of climate and related health events. Previous studies have documented associations between specific climate variables (particularly temperature and rainfall) and outbreaks of arboviral disease. In some countries, such diseases are sensitive to El Nino. Here we describe a climate-based model for the prediction of Ross River virus epidemics in Australia. From a literature search and data on case notifications, we determined in which years there were epidemics of Ross River virus in southern Australia between 1928 and 1998. Predictor variables were monthly Southern Oscillation index values for the year of an epidemic or lagged by 1 year. We found that in southeastern states, epidemic years were well predicted by monthly Southern Oscillation index values in January and September in the previous year. The model forecasts that there is a high probability of epidemic Ross River virus in the southern states of Australia in 1999. We conclude that epidemics of arboviral disease can, at least in principle, be predicted on the basis of climate relationships.  (+info)

Langerhans cells migrate to local lymph nodes following cutaneous infection with an arbovirus. (4/166)

Whereas there has been recent interest in interactions between dendritic cells and pathogenic viruses, the role of dendritic cells in the initiation of protective immunity to such organisms has not been elucidated. The aim of this study was to examine whether a resident dendritic cell population in the skin, Langerhans cells, respond to cutaneous viral infections which are effectively cleared by the immune system. We therefore characterized the ability of Langerhans cells to migrate to local draining lymph nodes following infection with the arthropod-borne viruses, West Nile virus or Semliki Forest virus. The data show that major histocompatibility complex class II+/NLDC145+/E-cadherin+ Langerhans cell numbers are increased in the draining lymph nodes of infected mice and this increase is accompanied by a concomitant decrease in the Langerhans cell density in the epidermis. Langerhans cell migration is associated with an accumulation of leukocytes in the lymph node, which is one of the earliest events in the initiation of an immune response. Both the migratory response and the draining lymph node leukocyte accumulation were abrogated if ultraviolet-inactivated instead of live viruses were used, suggesting the activation and subsequent migration of Langerhans cells requires a live, replicating antigen. Our findings are likely to have wider implications for the development of epidermally delivered vaccines and suggest that mobilization of dendritic cells may be involved in the development of immune responses to arthropod-borne viruses.  (+info)

H-2-linked control of cytotoxic T-cell responsiveness to alphavirus infection. Presence of H-2Dk during differentiation and stimulation converts stem cells of low responder genotype to T cells of responder phenotype. (5/166)

Secondary Tc cells generated against Sindbis virus (SIN) are restricted to Dk. All other H-2K or D regions tested show low specific responsiveness. F1 hybrids between low and high responders show dominance of responsiveness but lack complementation. When BALB/c (KdIdDd) low responder fetal liver stem cells were allowed to mature in irradiated high responder recipients C3H.OH (KdIdDk) a response to Dk plus SIN could be generated with Tc cells of BALB/c origin. This result, together with the failure of complementation in the F1 hybrids, implies that the lesion of low responsiveness is in the inability of viral antigen to stimulate a Tc-cell response in association with any self H-2K or H-2D molecule (of those tested) other than H-2Dk. Hypotheses compatible with these data are discussed.  (+info)

Standardization of immunoglobulin M capture enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays for routine diagnosis of arboviral infections. (6/166)

Immunoglobulin M antibody-capture enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (MAC-ELISA) is a rapid and versatile diagnostic method that readily permits the combination of multiple assays. Test consolidation is especially important for arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses) which belong to at least three virus families: the Togaviridae, Flaviviridae, and Bunyaviridae. Using prototype viruses from each of these families and a panel of well-characterized human sera, we have evaluated and standardized a combined MAC-ELISA capable of identifying virus infections caused by members of each virus family. Furthermore, by grouping antigens geographically and utilizing known serological cross-reactivities, we have reduced the number of antigens necessary for testing, while maintaining adequate detection sensitivity. We have determined that a 1:400 serum dilution is most appropriate for screening antiviral antibody, using a positive-to-negative ratio of >/=2.0 as a positive cutoff value. With a blind-coded human serum panel, this combined MAC-ELISA was shown to have test sensitivity and specificity that correlated well with those of other serological techniques.  (+info)

Detection of anti-arboviral immunoglobulin G by using a monoclonal antibody-based capture enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. (7/166)

Monoclonal antibody (MAb)-based capture enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) for the detection of anti-arboviral immunoglobulin G (IgG ELISAs) were developed for a comprehensive array of medically important arboviruses from the Alphavirus, Flavivirus, and Bunyavirus genera. Tests were optimized and standardized so that maximum homology could be maintained among working parameters for the different viral agents, enabling a wide range of viruses to be easily tested for at one time. MAbs were screened for suitability as capture vehicles for antigens from the three genera. The final test configuration utilized group-reactive MAbs eastern equine encephalitis virus 1A4B-6, dengue 2 virus 4G2, and La Crosse encephalitis virus 10G5.4 to capture the specific inactivated viral antigens. Serum IgG was detected by using alkaline phosphatase-conjugated anti-human IgG (Fc portion). A dilution of 1:400 was chosen as the universal screening serum dilution, with endpoint titrations of serum samples testing positive eliminating occasional false-positive results. IgG ELISA results correlated with those of the standard plaque-reduction neutralization assays. As expected, some test cross-reactivity was encountered within the individual genera, and tests were interpreted within the context of these reactions. The tests were standardized for laboratory diagnosis of arboviral infections, with the intent that they be used in tandem with the corresponding IgM antibody-capture ELISAs.  (+info)

Molecular strategies for interrupting arthropod-borne virus transmission by mosquitoes. (8/166)

Arthropod-borne virus (arbovirus) infections cause a number of emerging and resurgent human and veterinary infectious diseases. Traditional means of controlling arbovirus diseases include vaccination of susceptible vertebrates and mosquito control, but in many cases these have been unavailable or ineffective, and so novel strategies for disease control are needed. One possibility is genetic manipulation of mosquito vectors to render them unable to transmit arboviruses. This review describes recent work to test the concept of pathogen-derived resistance in arthropods by expression of viral genes in mosquito cell cultures and mosquitoes. Sense and antisense genome sequences from La Crosse virus (LAC) (a member of the Bunyaviridae) and dengue viruses serotypes 1 to 4 (DEN-1 to DEN-4) (members of the Flaviviridae) were expressed in mosquito cells from double-subgenomic and replicon vectors based on Sindbis virus (a member of the Togaviridae). The cells were then challenged with homologous or related viruses. For LAC, expression of antisense sequences from the small (S) genome segment, particularly full-length antisense S RNA, effectively interfered with replication of challenge virus, whereas expression of either antisense or sense RNA from the medium (M) segment was completely ineffective in LAC inhibition. Expression of sense and antisense RNA derived from certain regions of the DEN genome also blocked homologous virus replication more effectively than did RNA from other regions. Other parameters of RNA-mediated interference have been defined, such as the time when replication is blocked and the minimum size of effector RNA. The mechanism of RNA inhibition has not been determined, although it resembles double-stranded RNA interference in other nonvertebrate systems. Prospects for application of molecular strategies to control arbovirus diseases are briefly reviewed.  (+info)

Arbovirus is a term used to refer to any viruses that is transmitted by arthropod vectors. The word arbovirus is an acronym (ARthropod-BOrne virus). The word tibovirus (TIck-BOrne virus) is sometimes used to more specifically describe viruses transmitted by ticks, a superorder within the arthropods. Arboviruses can affect both animals, including humans, and plants. In humans, symptoms of arbovirus infection generally occur 3-15 days after exposure to the virus and last 3 or 4 days. The most common clinical features of infection are fever, headache, and malaise, but encephalitis and hemorrhagic fever may also occur. Arboviruses were not known to exist until the rise of modern medicine, with the germ theory and an understanding that viruses were distinct from other microorganisms. The connection between arthropods and disease was not postulated until 1881 when Cuban doctor and scientist Carlos Finlay proposed that yellow fever may be transmitted by mosquitoes instead of human contact, a reality ...

One strain of St. Louis encephalitis (SLE) virus and two strains of Japanese B encephalitis (JBE) virus were employed. Although the effects of low temperature on experimental arbovirus infection in bats varied with the bat species used and the relationship between inoculation of virus and the initiation of cold-exposure, the results obtained indicated that these animals would be ideal hosts for overwintering of arboviruses in nature. Generally, infection in bats was suppressed by low temperature but sustained by the animals for several months as evidenced by (1) the demonstration of low levels of virus in the blood and brown adipose tissue of the hibernating bat, and (2) the activation of viral multiplication upon transfer to 24°C producing
The rapid succession of the pandemic of arbovirus diseases, such as dengue, West Nile fever, chikungunya, and Zika fever, has intensified research on these and other arbovirus diseases worldwide. Investigating the unique mode of vector-borne transmission requires a clear understanding of the roles of vertebrates. One major obstacle to this understanding is the ambiguity of the arbovirus definition originally established by the World Health Organization. The paucity of pertinent information on arbovirus transmission at the time contributed to the notion that vertebrates played the role of reservoir in the arbovirus transmission cycle. Because this notion is a salient feature of the arbovirus definition, it is important to reexamine its validity. This review addresses controversial issues concerning vertebrate reservoirs and their role in arbovirus persistence in nature, examines the genesis of the problem from a historical perspective, discusses various unresolved issues from multiple points of view,
Arboviruses (arthropod-borne virus) cause viral infections that are spread by mosquitoes and other blood-sucking insects, such as ticks. Arbovirus testing can help diagnose the cause of meningitis or encephalitis and distinguish an arbovirus infection from other conditions causing similar symptoms.

A recent Macy conference defined tropical medicine as including the components of "protozoan, helminth and arthropod-borne virus infections, bacterial diarrheas, malnutrition and delivery of health care to the under-priviledged" (1). Adding "family planning and population programs" to the list expands the definition of what might be called the most appropriate "medicine" for the developing countries.. The topics covered in this comprehensive definition have two things in common: they are of prime importance to the health and ultimately the development of the pre-industrial societies; and they are all curiously neglected in medical school curricula, in the developed countries and in the ...

Background , Models of arbovirus transmission are useful in estimating the burden of Dengue, forecasting areas of risk for the emergence of Dengue, Chikungunya and Zika in non-endemic areas, and in assessing the potential of control interventions. The utility of these models relies on their grounding in empirical data at multiple scales describing the disease transmission process. The aims are to (i) model the dynamics of viruses in their invertebrate and vertebrate hosts as well as the movement of these hosts viz ...

Summary Hemagglutination-inhibiting antibody responses with selected Group B arthropod-borne virus antigens were studied following administration of living attenuated 17D strain yellow fever vaccine to human subjects who had (a) no previous Group B arbovirus experience, (b) only 17D strain vaccine previously, (c) previous inapparent natural Japanese encephalitis virus infection and (d) complex Group B arbovirus experience previously. The results indicate the following: 1. Previous homologous or heterologous immunological experience did not suppress the yellow fever HI response to the living vaccine. On the contrary, the response was sometimes enhanced. 2. Heterologous HI responses depended upon the nature of the previous Group B arbovirus experience. (a) Subjects with no prevaccination Group B arbovirus experience developed a limited array of low-titered heterologous antibodies. (b) Subjects previously vaccinated with the 17D strain but with no other Group B arbovirus experience exhibited limited
Background Dengue offers emerged as the most significant of arboviral diseases in the 21st century. of this cloned dengue protease we randomly screened ~1000 small molecules from an in-house library to identify potential dengue protease inhibitors. Results A benzimidazole derivative, named MB21, was found to be the most potent in inhibiting the cloned protease (IC50?=?5.95?M). docking analysis indicated that MB21 binds to the protease in the vicinity of the active site. Analysis of kinetic parameters of the enzyme reaction suggested that MB21 presumably functions as a mixed type inhibitor. Significantly, this molecule identified as an inhibitor of dengue type 299442-43-6 manufacture 2 299442-43-6 manufacture protease was also effective in inhibiting each one of the four serotypes of dengue viruses in infected cells in culture, based on analysis of viral antigen synthesis and infectious computer virus production.

Zika virus is a mosquito-borne flavivirus that was first identified in Uganda in 1947 in monkeys. The first large outbreak of disease caused by Zika infection was reported from the Island of Yap (Federated States of Micronesia) in 2007. Sexual transmission of Zika virus has been confirmed with other modes of transmission being investigated. The incubation period of Zika virus disease is not well defined but is likely to be a few days - similar to other arbovirus infections such as dengue. A diagnosis of Zika virus infection can only be confirmed through laboratory tests on blood or other body fluids, such as urine, saliva or semen.. In 2015, an association between Zika virus infection and Guillain-Barré syndrome and microcephaly was reported. Now, a comprehensive review, confirms that the Zika virus is a cause of microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome. Some evidence exists that other neurological disorders are linked with Zika infection. ...
Peter Hotez and Serap Aksoy, co-Editors in Chief of PLOS Neglected Tropical Diaseases, contemplate the recent rises in various vector-borne NTDs around the world. In 2013 both chikungunya and Zika virus infection are believed to have first emerged in the Western Hemisphere where both viruses now affect much of the population of Latin America and the Caribbean region and also threaten the United States. Chikungunya made its first appearance on the Caribbean island nation of Saint Martin at the end of 2013 and has since spread throughout much of the Americas, including the first locally acquired case in Texas reported this year. Similarly, molecular clock studies indicate that Zika probably first entered the Americas between May and December of 2013 before also spreading throughout Latin America and the Caribbean region, and there are fears that transmission of Zika might start by later this summer in the continental US.. While the rapid dissemination of these arbovirus infections in the Western ...
Arthropod-borne viruses, or arboviruses, are viruses that are transmitted through the bites of mosquitoes and ticks. There are numerous arboviruses throughout the world capable of causing human disease spanning different viral families and genera. Recently, dengue, chikungunya, and zika viruses have emerged as increasingly important arboviruses that can cause human disease, however no specific treatment or vaccine is available for them. In addition, ocular manifestations of these diseases have become more prevalent over the past few years. This review highlights the current understanding on the pathogenesis, systemic changes and ocular findings, emphasizing the retinal manifestations related to dengue, chikungunya, and zika viruses.
Arboviruses (or arthropod-borne viruses) are a heterogeneous group of viruses that share the same usual route of entry into humans: via the bite of an infected mosquito, tick, sandfly, or other arthropod.1,2 The life cycle of most arboviruses is characterized by the ability of the virus to replicate in both an arthropod vector and a vertebrate "natural" host (usually birds or small mammals) and by transmission between these two organisms at the time of the arthropods bite (eFig. 305.1). This cycle leads to establishment or maintenance of the virus in a given ecosystem. Humans or domestic animals are only "incidental" hosts for many species of arboviruses, as infection in such hosts (although capable of causing disease) is often a dead-end for the virus due to viremia being too low or too transient to contribute to maintenance of the cycle of transmission. Some viruses are specific to a single genus or species of insect, while others are transmissible by multiple vectors. In addition, some ...
State of Connecticut Mosquito Trapping and Arbovirus Testing Program--Historical Information Abstract: State of Connecticut Mosquito Trapping and Arbovirus Testing Program--Historical Information--1993-2013
We found this interesting information on the internet and thought you would like to be aware of the symptoms of Zika…especially since its so new here in the US.. Symptoms of Zika virus in most people are similar to other arboviruses such as Chikungunya (fever, headache, fatigue primarily). The recent epidemic in Brazil, however, has been distinctively marked by detection of the disease in fetal amniotic fluid and an elevated reporting of cases of microcephaly (small head size) in newborns.. Given the virus recent introduction to the Americas, some epidemiologists have expressed concern that resistance may be low, leading to increased transmission rates and severity of symptoms. In rare cases, Zika symptoms have been associated with Guillain-Barre syndrome, which causes the bodys immune system to attack its neurological system and can lead to paralysis.. Because no Zika vaccine yet exist, the response to the outbreak involves stepped-up public health efforts, including vector control of ...

Key Public Risk Communication Messages for the Week of Sept 24, 2012:. 1. Day time and early evening temperatures are still warm enough for continued mosquito activity. Mosquito activity drops off when temperatures are below 60 but some mosquitoes will be active even down to 52 degrees.. 2. At this time of year, the mosquitoes that remain are older adults; as mosquitoes age, they are more likely to have picked up either EEE or WNV so a greater proportion of them are probably infected. Because of cooler temperatures, mosquito trapping is less effective and the increased infection rates are not always obvious based on mosquito testing results.. 3. Communities at high or critical risk for EEE are urged to consider rescheduling outdoor, evening events that occur between the hours of dusk and dawn. Communities at high or critical risk for WNV should consider outreach to residents over the age of 50 with information about peak mosquito activity hours.. ...
Mosquitoes are small, midge-like flies, which comprise the family Culicidae. Females of most species are ectoparasites, whose tube-like mouthparts (called a proboscis) pierce the hosts skin to consume blood. The word "mosquito" (formed by mosca and diminutive ito) is Spanish for "little fly".[2] Thousands of species feed on the blood of various kinds of hosts, mainly vertebrates, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and even some kinds of fish. Some mosquitoes also attack invertebrates, mainly arthropods. Though the loss of blood is seldom of any importance to the victim, the saliva of the mosquito often causes an irritating rash that is a serious nuisance. Much more serious though, are the roles of many species of mosquitoes as vectors of diseases. In passing from host to host, some transmit extremely harmful infections such as malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, west Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus and other arboviruses, rendering it the deadliest animal family in ...

Summary Cell lines of baby hamster kidney (BHK 21), green monkey kidney (Vero, MA 134), rhesus monkey kidney (MA 104), and rabbit kidney (MA 111) were found suitable for titration and multiplication of arboviruses. Plaque characteristics of 52 arboviruses and 20 virus strains and titres of some of them in BHK 21 and other cell lines were established, using one type of serum-free standard overlay and standard maintenance medium. However, the addition of cortisol or other compounds was necessary to prolong survival of BHK 21 cell sheets, and induce or improve plaque formation.

Arboviruses include mosquitoborne and tickborne agents that persist in nature in complex cycles involving birds or mammals, including humans. Arboviral infection can cause fever, headache, meningitis, encephalitis, and sometimes death. During 1996-1997, health departments in 19 states reported to CDC 286 confirmed or probable * cases (eight fatal) of arboviral encephalitis in humans (132 cases in 1996 and 154 provisionally in 1997). Surveillance programs in 18 states detected enzootic arboviral activity in mosquito or sentinel or wild bird populations, and cases of arboviral disease were recognized among horses or emus in 24 states. This report summarizes information about arboviral infection of the central nervous system in the United States during 1996-1997. La Crosse Encephalitis During 1996-1997, a total of 252 La Crosse encephalitis (LAC) cases (103 confirmed and 149 probable; one fatal) were reported from 12 states. Patients ranged in age from 5 months to 78 years (mean: 9 years), and 95% ...
Extrinsic and environmental factors are known to affect the transmission of arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses), including variations in the arthropod vector populations. Differences among these factors have been associated with differential transmission and are sometimes used to control the spread of an arbovirus through a vertebrate population in an effort to prevent or disrupt an outbreak. However, diversity in intrinsic viral populations, such as genetic and phenotypic variability, is not often accounted for when considering alterations in transmission. Presented in this dissertation are four experimental studies that explore the contribution of viral intrinsic factors, especially phenotypic variability, to the transmission potential of arboviruses as judged by modeling parameters such as vectorial capacity (VC) and the basic reproductive number (R0). The overall hypothesis of this research is that phenotypic differences of arboviruses alter the transmission potential of these arboviruses by
Arboviruses, or arthropod-borne viruses, affecting humans are RNA viruses that are biologically transmitted to vertebrate hosts by the bite of arthropod vectors. There are more than 500 arboviruses which are grouped in at least seven families; Togaviridae, Flaviviridae, Bunyaviridae, Reoviridae, Rhabdoviridae, Orthomyxoviridae, and Asfarviridae.. About 100 arboviruses cause illness in humans and through investigation of travel history and exposures laboratory and clinical diagnosis can be simplified. The majority of arboviruses result in simple febrile illness that is not uncommon to symptoms of common viral or bacterial infections. Typically clinical features of "acute arboviral fevers usually include a sudden onset of debilitating symptoms, such as malaise, extreme headache, myalgia, lumbar pain, and sometimes nausea, vomiting, and dizziness" (Lanciotti & Tsai, 2007, p. 1486). Given the large number of arboviruses there is a broad range of symptoms that may also occur including aseptic ...
A primary aim is to fully understand the mechanisms of Wolbachia-mediated arbovirus transmission blocking in mosquitoes. The viruses studied include dengue and Zika, in the most important mosquito vector species Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. We are examining the interactions between these mosquito hosts and various native and non-native strains of Wolbachia, including bacterial density (which correlates positively with degree of virus-blocking), interactions between Wolbachia strains in multi-strain infections, and the modulation of various host cellular metabolic pathways by Wolbachia that can impact on virus transmission.. We are also working towards collaborative open field trials in Malaysia in both mosquito species, using various Wolbachia strains to reduce the transmission of dengue and other mosquito-borne viruses. This includes creation of new transinfected lines, and characterization of the effects on mosquito fitness and viral susceptibility.. ...
Female mosquitoes use two very different food sources. They need sugar for energy, which is taken from sources such as nectar, and they need blood as a source of protein for egg development. Because biting is risky and suitable hosts may be difficult to find, mosquitoes take as much blood as possible when they have the opportunity. Digesting large volumes of blood takes time, requiring the use of energy from sugars during the feeding process. To avoid this problem, mosquitoes possess a digestive system which can store both food types, giving access to both as needed. When the mosquito drinks a sugar solution, it is directed to a crop. The crop can release sugar into the stomach as it is required. At the same time, the stomach never becomes full of sugar solution, which would prevent the mosquito taking a blood meal.[citation needed] Blood is directed straight into the mosquitos stomach. In species that feed on mammalian or avian blood, hosts whose blood pressure is high, the mosquito feeds ...

Diagnostic and epidemiologic virology laboratories have in large part traded conventional techniques of virus detection and identification for more rapid, novel, and sensitive molecular methods. By doing so, useful phenotypic characteristics are not being determined. We feel that the impact of this shift in emphasis has impaired studies of the biology of viruses. This position paper is a plea to the scientific and administrative communities to reconsider the importance of such information. We also suggest a revised paradigm for virus isolation and characterization and provide a rationale for accumulating biologic (phenotypic) information ...
Mosquito-borne diseases occur annually in West Virginia beginning in early spring and peaking in August and September, coinciding with mosquito activity. Arboviral infections, particularly La Crosse encephalitis (LAC) and West Nile virus (WNV), are endemic mosquito-borne diseases identified in West Virginia. In 2016, eight LAC cases and one WNV case were reported in West Virginia. Persons with severe arboviral infections will often have symptoms of encephalitis. Please be vigilant in identifying such cases, and ensure that all hospitalized patients with encephalitis undergo appropriate arboviral disease testing during mosquito season.. The Zika virus disease is reportable to the local health department (LHD) within 24 hours since it is an emerging disease of public health concern. To prevent local and sexual transmission and infections in pregnant women at-risk of having adverse birth outcomes, prompt public health action is needed. In 2016 , 11 Zika virus cases were reported in West Virginia. ...
Powassan (POW) virus, a North American tick-borne flavivirus related to the Eastern Hemispheres tick-borne encephalitis viruses, was first isolated from a patient with encephalitis in 1958. During 1958-1998, 27 human POW encephalitis cases were reported from Canada and the northeastern United States. During September 1999-July 2001, four Maine and Vermont residents with encephalitis were found to be infected with POW virus. These persons were tested for other arbovirus infections found in the northeast, after initial testing for West Nile virus (WNV) infection was negative. Findings from clinical and environmental investigations underscore the need for personal protective measures to prevent tick bites and continued encephalitis surveillance. Because there is no vaccine or specific therapy for POW encephalitis, the best means of prevention is protection from tick bite. This includes use of insect repellants, wearing light-colored clothing with long sleeves and pants tucked into socks or boots, ...
Zika virus (ZIKV) is an arthropodborne member of the genus Flavivirus of the Spondweni serocomplex and is transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes (primarily Ae. aegypti in urban and periurban cycles). ZIKV emerged in Africa and has caused outbreaks of febrile disease that clinically resemble dengue fever and other arboviral diseases (1) but has been linked to neurologic syndromes and congenital malformation (2). Outbreaks have been reported in the Yap islands of the Federated States of Micronesia (3), French Polynesia (4), and Oceania; Brazil is currently experiencing the first reported local transmission of ZIKV in the Americas (5).. The future spread of ZIKV is unpredictable, but the history of ZIKV has been reminiscent of chikungunya virus (CHIKV), which reemerged in Africa and now circulates on all inhabited continents and is a major global health problem. ZIKV has been found in Colombia and is likely following the path of CHIKV, which reached the country in August 2014 (6). The virus co-circulates ...
A method for carrying out antibody absorption studies for antigenic analysis of group B arthropod-borne (arbor) viruses is described and examples of homologous and heterologous absorption curves are presented. Evidence that antigenic structure can be a stable property was obtained with three strains of West Nile virus isolated from different hosts in different countries over a period of years. Comparative studies with viruses of the Japanese B-St. Louis-West Nile subgroup indicate that each virus contains a completely specific antigen as well as one or more cross-reactive components. Strains of yellow fever virus isolated in America were shown to lack an antigen present in strains of African origin although no differences were found between isolates from the same geographical area. The attenuated 17 D vaccine strain of yellow fever was found to have acquired an additional antigen not present in the unadapted parent or in other strains tested. However, alteration in pathogenicity for man was not ...

Arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses) can persistently infect and cause limited damage to mosquito vectors. RNA interference (RNAi) is a mosquito antiviral response important in restricting RNA virus replication and has been shown to be active against some arboviruses. The goal of this study was to use a recombinant Sindbis virus (SINV; family Togaviridae; genus Alphavirus) that expresses B2 protein of Flock House virus (FHV; family Nodaviridae; genus Alphanodavirus), a protein that inhibits RNAi, to determine the effects of linking arbovirus infection with RNAi inhibition. B2 protein expression from SINV (TE/32J) inhibited the accumulation of non-specific small RNAs in Aedes aegypti mosquito cell culture and virus-specific small RNAs both in infected cell culture and Ae. aegypti mosquitoes. More viral genomic and subgenomic RNA accumulated in cells and mosquitoes infected with TE/32J virus expressing B2 (TE/32J/B2) compared to TE/32J and TE/32J virus expressing GFP. TE/32J/B2 exhibited increased
The understanding of the current chikungunya burden depends on a better understanding of the mortality associated with this arboviruses. Our findings show excess mortality during chikungunya epidemics in three most affected states in Brazil. The correlation between the incidence of chikungunya and increase in all-cause mortality reinforce the possibility that chikungunya virus has an impact on mortality rates. Similar results have already been found in other chikungunya epidemics in the past decades2,3,4. Incidence of dengue virus was high in all studied areas in the years 2011-2013, used as a baseline5. Therefore, we suggest that the excess deaths should be related to chikungunya infections and not another arbovirus that occurs at the same season. This is the first time that the excess mortality associated with chikungunya by age group has been calculated, and the results are very close to that found in the Reunion Islands epidemic using the data obtained in the death certificates16.. Since the ...
In Japan, epizootic arboviral infections have severely impacted the livestock industry for a long period. Akabane, Aino, Chuzan, bovine ephemeral fever and Ibaraki viruses have repeatedly caused epizootic abnormal births and febrile illness in the cattle population. In addition, Peaton, Sathuperi, Shamonda and DAguilar viruses and epizootic hemorrhagic virus serotype 7 have recently emerged in Japan and are also considered to be involved in abnormal births in cattle. The above-mentioned viruses are hypothesized to circulate in tropical and subtropical Asia year round and to be introduced to temperate East Asia by long-distance aerial dispersal of infected vectors. To watch for arbovirus incursion and assess the possibility of its early warning, monitoring for arboviruses was conducted in the Yaeyama Islands, located at the most southwestern area of Japan, between 1994 and 2014. Blood sampling was conducted once a year, in the autumn, in 40 to 60 healthy cattle from the Yaeyama Islands. Blood samples
Background Arboviral diseases are major global public health threats. Yet, our understanding of infection risk factors is, with a few exceptions, considerably limited. A crucial shortcoming is the widespread use of analytical methods generally not suited for observational data - particularly null hypothesis-testing (NHT) and step-wise regression (SWR). Using Mayaro virus (MAYV) as a case study, here we compare information theory-based multimodel inference (MMI) with conventional analyses for arboviral infection risk factor assessment. Methodology/Principal Findings A cross-sectional survey of anti-MAYV antibodies revealed 44% prevalence (n = 270 subjects) in a central Amazon rural settlement. NHT suggested that residents of village-like household clusters and those using closed toilet/latrines were at higher risk, while living in non-village-like areas, using bednets, and owning fowl, pigs or dogs were protective. The
In 1975 Ohio experienced the largest epidemic of mosquito-borne encephalitis in its history. Four hundred and sixty-eight human cases (416 St. Louis [SLE] and 52 California [CE] occurred with 30 fatalities; one death was due to CE. The entire United States was hard hit (Illinois, 475; Indiana, 297; Mississippi, 210; Michigan, 20; Tennessee, 91; 30 others, 550 ) with 1816 SLE, 160 CE, 133, Western, and 3 Eastern encephalitis cases causing 150 fatalities. The cycle of mosquito-borne encephalitis in nature progresses as follows: A mosquito infected with virus feeds on a non-infected animal, such as a bird in the case of St. Louis encephalitis. In approximately 24 hours the bird begins circulating the virus in its blood stream. This situation is called viremia. The bird circulates virus in sufficient quantity to infect other non-infected mosquitoes for a period of approximately four days. The virus then leaves the blood stream, and the bird is no longer able to infect a mosquito. After a period of
Mosquito-borne chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is a positive-sense, single-stranded RNA virus from the genus Alphavirus, family Togaviridae, which causes fever, rash and severe persistent polyarthralgia in humans. Since there are currently no FDA licensed vaccines or antiviral therapies for CHIKV, the development of vaccine candidates is of critical importance. Historically, live-attenuated vaccines (LAVs) for protection against arthropod-borne viruses have been created by blind cell culture passage leading to attenuation of disease, while maintaining immunogenicity. Attenuation may occur via multiple mechanisms. However, all examined arbovirus LAVs have in common the acquisition of positively charged amino acid substitutions in cell-surface attachment proteins that render virus infection partially dependent upon heparan sulfate (HS), a ubiquitously expressed sulfated polysaccharide, and appear to attenuate by retarding dissemination of virus particles in vivo. We previously reported that, like other ...
Of the 151 suspected cases, 9 were confirmed by serology (IgM) at the Institute National Biomedical Research (INRB) in Kinshasa. Given possible cross-reactions with other arboviruses, IgM positive samples were sent to the Pasteur Institute of Dakar for confirmation where 4 tested positive for the infection. Of the 4 cases confirmed in Dakar, 3 were imported from Angola and were detected in the areas of Nsona-Pangu, Kimpese and Kitona in Kongo Central province (formerly, Bas-Congo), DRC. This province shares borders with Angola. ...

Investigator: Timothy Savage. Mentor: Dr. Ana Fernandez-Sesma, PhD. Dengue virus is the most prevalent arthropod-borne virus in the world, with an estimated 50-100 million people infected each year and no available vaccine or antiviral treatments. Characterized by a febrile illness, muscle, bone, and retro-orbital pain, dengue virus can be a devastating disease. 500,000 patients a year, disproportionately children, are afflicted with Severe Dengue, which can feature hemorrhage and shock on top of the aforementioned symptoms and carries a mortality rate of 1-20% depending on available treatment. Vaccines and antivirals are urgently needed, but in order to generate targeted therapeutics a better understanding of dengue virus-host interactions is needed. Our study aimed to identify host factors that either restricted or enhanced dengue virus replication with the aim of elucidating host-viral interactions and identifying targets for therapeutic intervention. After a proteomic analysis of primary ...

Emeritus Professor Duane Gubler is an international expert on vector borne-infectious diseases and a go-to spokesperson for the media for all things infectious disease-related. This year alone he has been interviewed by The New York Times, The Straits Times, and Vox, among other media outlets.. "Arboviruses: Molecular Biology, Evolution and Control on arboviruses", a well-received book edited by Prof Gubler, looks at viruses that are transmitted by arthropod vectors, such as mosquitoes, flies, sand flies, lice, fleas, ticks and mites. Since Zika was declared a major global emergency last year, and dengue remains a consistent health threat and concern, the text is a much welcome contribution to the literature on these groups of viruses.. Microscope caught up with Prof Gubler for more on his book and his thoughts on global health concerns:. How did you come up with the concept for this book?. I was approached by several publishers to edit and compile a book that looked at arboviruses. In the past ...

Email: [email protected] Research. My research focuses on characterizing the interactions between mosquito-borne viruses and their vectors and the influence of viral genetics on the virulence, transmission efficiency, and attenuation of different arthropod-borne viruses. The long-term objective of my research is to determine mechanisms that are responsible for the emergence of mosquito-borne viruses in nature. By studying the related mechanisms, it can not only provide the knowledge for the formulation of control strategies for emerging arboviral diseases but also assist the development of safer and immunogenic vaccine candidates. Through collaborative research, I have conducted research on emerging and re-emerging arboviruses such as Zika virus (ZIKV), chikungunya virus (CHIKV), dengue viruses (DENV), yellow fever virus (YFV), and Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV).

Bluetongue virus (BTV) is transmitted by Culicoides biting midges and was previously confined to tropical and sub-tropical regions but is now endemic in several Southern European countries, including Cyprus, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and France (Corsica). Epidemiological studies and phylogenetic analyses (primarily by members of the PALE-Blu consortium) have identified new introductions or discoveries of the virus in Europe each year since 1998, involving eleven distinct BTV serotypes (BTV-1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 11, 14, 16, 25, and 27).. Bluetongue disease (BT) represents an important threat to livestock health and food production in Europe and neighbouring countries. The continuing arrival of new exotic strains from neighbouring regions, suggests that incursions by BTV (and possibly by related orbiviruses and other arboviruses) are likely to continue in Europe for the foreseeable future..

EEEP : Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) is within the alphavirus group. It is a low prevalence cause of human disease in the eastern and Gulf Coast states. EEE is maintained by a cycle of mosquito/wild bird transmission, peaking in the summer and early fall, when man may become an adventitious host. The most common clinically apparent manifestation is a mild undifferentiated febrile illness, usually with headache. Central nervous system involvement is demonstrated in only a minority of infected individuals, it is more abrupt and more severe with EEE than other arboviruses, with children being more susceptible to severe disease. Fatality rates are approximately 70% for EEE.
Mosquitoes are small, midge like flies that constitute the family Culicidae. Which transmit extremely harmful diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile Virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus and other arboviruses rendering it the deadliest animal family in the world. Many medicinal herbs and essential oil has been reported to have many pharmacological activities, one of which is their property to repel the mosquitoes. Essential oils are volatile mixtures of hydrocarbons with a diversity of functional groups, and their repellent activity has been linked to the presence of mono - terpenes and sesquiterpenes. A mosquito repellent is a substance applied to skin, clothing, or other surfaces which discourages mosquitoes from landing on that surface. Herbal repellents are cost effective, easily available and low toxic as compared to synthetic repellents. ...
West Nile virus (WNV) circulates across Australia and was referred to historically as Kunjin virus (WNVKUN). WNVKUN has been considered more benign than other WNV strains circulating globally. In 2011, a more virulent form of the virus emerged during an outbreak of equine arboviral disease in Australia. To better understand the emergence of this virulent phenotype and the mechanism by which pathogenicity is manifested in its host, cells were infected with either the virulent strain (NSW2012), or less pathogenic historical isolates, and their innate immune responses compared by digital immune gene expression profiling. Two different cell systems were used: a neuroblastoma cell line (SK-N-SH cells) and neuronal cells derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Significant innate immune gene induction was observed in both systems. The NSW2012 isolate induced higher gene expression of two genes (IL-8 and CCL2) when compared with cells infected with less pathogenic isolates. Pathway analysis of

We report the detailed molecular characterization of two PLA2s, Lys49 and Asp49 isolated from Bothrops leucurus venom, and examined their effects against Dengue virus (DENV). The Bl-PLA2s, named BlK-PLA2 and BlD-PLA2, are composed of 121 and 122 amino acids determined by automated sequencing of the native proteins and peptides produced by digestion with trypsin. They contain fourteen cysteines with pIs of 9.05 and 8.18 for BlK- and BlD-PLA2s, and show a high degree of sequence similarity to homologous snake venom PLA2s, but may display different biological effects. Molecular masses of 13,689.220 (Lys49) and 13,978.386 (Asp49) were determined by mass spectrometry. DENV causes a prevalent arboviral disease in humans, and no clinically approved antiviral therapy is currently available to treat DENV infections. The maximum non-toxic concentration of the proteins to LLC-MK2 cells determined by MTT assay was 40 µg/mL for Bl-PLA2s (pool) and 20 µg/mL for each isoform. Antiviral effects of Bl-PLA2s were

Flaviviruses are arthropod-borne viruses that constitute a major global health problem, with millions of human infections annually. Their pathogenesis ranges from mild illness to severe manifestations such as hemorrhagic fever and fatal encephalitis. Type I interferons (IFNs) are induced in response to viral infection and stimulate the expression of interferon-stimulated genes (ISGs), including that encoding viperin (virus-inhibitory protein, endoplasmic reticulum associated, IFN inducible), which shows antiviral activity against a broad spectrum of viruses, including several flaviviruses. Here we describe a novel antiviral mechanism employed by viperin against two prominent flaviviruses, tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) and Zika virus (ZIKV). Viperin was found to interact and colocalize with the structural proteins premembrane (prM) and envelope (E) of TBEV, as well as with nonstructural (NS) proteins NS2A, NS2B, and NS3. Interestingly, viperin expression reduced the NS3 protein level, and ...
As of Feb. 6, there were 12,904 suspected cases of dengue reported in 2016, including 49 deaths. This is slightly higher than that reported during the same period in 2015 when 12,766 cases were reported.. Dengue is an important arboviral infection that continues to cause a substantial public health burden in Asia and the Pacific.. Dengue is transmitted by the bite of a mosquito infected with one of the four dengue virus serotypes. It is a febrile illness that affects infants, young children and adults with symptoms appearing 3-14 days after the infective bite.. Dengue is not transmitted directly from person-to-person and symptoms range from mild fever, to incapacitating high fever, with severe headache, pain behind the eyes, muscle and joint pain, and rash..

Severe dengue (also known as dengue hemorrhagic fever) is characterized by fever, abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, bleeding and breathing difficulty and is a ...
The definition of areas of higher incidence proved to be useful for surveillance and for epidemiological investigations according to the proposed methodology. The experiment carried out in the municipality of Natal-RN enabled the identification of arbovirus patterns, dispersion and vector density of Aedes aegypti, and detection of circulating viral serotypes that supported planning and development of more effective interventions thanks to a risk classification based on epidemiological and entomological indicators. A direct result of this experiment was the minimization of the impact of an epidemic occurred in 2015 in Natal-RN, whose number of cases was lower than in previous epidemics, a fact attributed to the coordinated and articulated responses of the [email protected] Since the methodology is simple, using easy-to-obtain data, at a low cost and with comprehensive coverage, this strategy has proved to be easily adaptable and possible to be applied in any small and medium-sized ...

BACKGROUND: Many tropical countries are currently experiencing dengue (DEN), chikungunya (CHIK) and also more recently Zika (ZIKA) epidemics (particularly in Latin America). Although the risk of transmission and spread of these infections in temperate regions remains a controversial issue, vector-borne diseases have been widely reported in the media and have been the focus of preventive strategies by national and international policy-makers and public health authorities. In this context, we wanted to determine the extent of risk perception in infectious diseases (ID) physicians of the current and future risk of arboviral disease introduction, autochthonous case development and epidemic scenarios in France, Western Europe. METHODS: To this aim, we developed an original standardized questionnaire survey which was disseminated by the French Infectious Diseases Society to ID physician members. RESULTS: We found that ID physicians perceived the risk of introduction and outbreak development of DEN,
PATHOGEN SAFETY DATA SHEET - INFECTIOUS SUBSTANCES. SECTION I - INFECTIOUS AGENT NAME: Semliki Forest Virus SYNONYM OR CROSS REFERENCE: SFV (1-3), Old World Alphavirus (4), Semliki Forest Fever (5) CHARACTERISTICS: Family Togaviridae, Genus Alphavirus (6, 7). Virions have an approximate diameter of 50-70 nm and contain one positive stranded RNA molecule. Genetic material is enveloped in an icosahedral nucleocapsid.. SECTION II - HAZARD IDENTIFICATION PATHOGENICITY/TOXICITY: Most infections caused by the Semliki Forest Virus (SFV) are asymptomatic or very mild (3). When symptoms are present they are mild. During the acute phase of infection they are indistinguishable from those of malaria, influenza, or other febrile illnesses (3, 8). When present, symptoms include headache, fever, myalgia and athrolgia. Rare symptoms of abdominal pain, diarrhea, and conjunctivitis have been reported. The acute phase lasts 2-4 days and is followed by a long period marked by weakness. In the only case reported to ...
Dengue is the worlds most common arboviral infection, with almost 4 billion people estimated to be living at risk of dengue infection. A recently introduced vaccine is currently recommended only for seropositive individuals in a restricted age range determined by transmission intensity. With no effective dengue vaccine for the general population or any antiviral therapy, dengue control continues to rely heavily on vector control measures. Early and accurate diagnosis is important for guiding appropriate management and for disease surveillance to guide prompt dengue control interventions. However, major uncertainties exist in dengue diagnosis and this has important implications for all three. Dengue can be diagnosed clinically against predefined lists of signs and symptoms and by detection of dengue-specific antibodies, non-structural 1 antigen or viral RNA by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction. All of these methods have their limitations. This review aims to describe and quantify the

Zika fever, considered as an emerging disease of arboviral origin, because of its expanding geographic area, is known as a benign infection usually presenting as an influenza-like illness with cutaneous rash. So far, Zika virus infection has never led to hospitalisation.

When various public health authorities and the media repeatedly said that the Zika virus is only in the bloodstream for a few days to a week, I wondered how that could be possible. Every week or two, a new finding revealed the Zika virus seems to hide in certain regions of the body - even becoming more virulent in some cases. So, I delved into how safe our blood supply is (both in the U.S. and Canada) and was completely floored by what appears to be systematic, intentional oversights by those who are trusted to ensure the safety of our blood supply.

Trying to uncover facts about the Zika virus that seems to be threatening us on a global scale, is like uncovering the proverbial needle in the haystack. You find one fact and then you discover the contradiction. This week, Ive spent some time trying to uncover exactly what the alarm is about, why, who is responsible, or where exactly and how exactly did the Zika virus suddenly explode into something more than what it normally is.
The mosquito-borne Zika virus has become one of the worlds biggest health scare of recent years. But what do travellers need to know to ensure they are safe? Find out here.
Few studies have investigated the many mosquito species that harbor arboviruses in Kenya. During the 2006-2007 Rift Valley fever outbreak in North Eastern Province, Kenya, exophilic mosquitoes were collected from homesteads within 2 affected areas: Gumarey (rural) and Sogan-Godud (urban). Mosquitoes (n = 920) were pooled by trap location and tested for Rift Valley fever virus and West Nile virus. The most common mosquitoes trapped belonged to the genus Culex (75%). Of 105 mosquito pools tested, 22% were positive for Rift Valley fever virus, 18% were positive for West Nile virus, and 3% were positive for both. Estimated mosquito minimum infection rates did not differ between locations. Our data demonstrate the local abundance of mosquitoes that could propagate arboviral infections in Kenya and the high prevalence of vector arbovirus positivity during a Rift Valley fever outbreak.
Background: The global distribution and disease burden of arboviral diseases have increased over recent years. In the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, the epidemiology of arboviruses remains poorly characterized. Methods: Following the PRISMA guidelines, we systematically reviewed available records across the WHO, World Bank, and UNAIDS-defined MENA region describing the human, animal, and vector prevalence for six arboviruses which were selected based on their known endemicity in the region and broader global importance: chikungunya virus (CHIKV), crimean-congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV), dengue virus (DENV), rift valley fever virus (RVFV), west nile virus (WNV), and yellow fever (YFV). Geospatial prevalence maps were generated using ArcGIS software. Results: We screened 2,090 reports and identified 586 prevalence measures for the arboviruses of interest in humans (40%) and animals (60%) in MENA. Countries with no published prevalence data were Algeria, Bahrain, Palestine, ...
To the Editor: Zika virus (ZIKV) is a mosquito-borne flavivirus related to yellow fever virus, dengue virus (DENV), and West Nile virus (WNV). It is a single-stranded positive RNA virus (10,794-nt genome) that is closely related to the Spondweni virus and is transmitted by many Aedes spp. mosquitoes, including Ae. africanus, Ae. luteocephalus, Ae. hensilli, and Ae. aegypti. The virus was identified in rhesus monkeys during sylvatic yellow fever surveillance in the Zika Forest in Uganda in 1947 and was reported in humans in 1952 (1).. In 2007, an outbreak of ZIKV was reported in Yap Island, Federated States of Micronesia (2). ZIKV also caused a major epidemic in the French Polynesia in 2013-2014 (3), and New Caledonia reported imported cases from French Polynesia in 2013 and reported an outbreak in 2014 (4).. A new challenge has arisen in Brazil with the emergence of ZIKV and co-circulation with others arboviruses (i.e., DENV and chikungunya virus [CHIKV]). We report ZIKV infection in Brazil ...
