Vectors of Chikungunya virus in Senegal: current data and transmission cycles. (2/292)

Chikungunya fever is a viral disease transmitted to human beings by Aedes genus mosquitoes. From 1972 to 1986 in Kedougou, Senegal, 178 Chikungunya virus strains were isolated from gallery forest mosquitoes, with most of them isolated from Ae. furcifer-taylori (129 strains), Ae. luteocephalus (27 strains), and Ae. dalzieli (12 strains). The characteristics of the sylvatic transmission cycle are a circulation periodicity with silent intervals that last approximately three years. Few epidemics of this disease have been reported in Senegal. The most recent one occurred in 1996 in Kaffrine where two Chikungunya virus strains were isolated from Ae. aegypti. The retrospective analysis of viral isolates from mosquitoes, wild vertebrates, and humans allowed to us to characterize Chikungunya virus transmission cycles in Senegal and to compare them with those of yellow fever virus.  (+info)

First case of yellow fever in French Guiana since 1902. (3/292)

The first case of yellow fever in French Guiana since 1902 was reported in March 1998. The yellow fever virus genome was detected in postmortem liver biopsies by seminested polymerase chain reaction. Sequence analysis showed that this strain was most closely related to strains from Brazil and Ecuador.  (+info)

Automated measurement of oxygen consumption by the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti. (4/292)

Oxygen consumption of single mosquitoes was measured using a differential pressure transducer (DPT) connected to two small chambers. A mosquito was placed in the experimental chamber (P1) and was separated from NaOH by 4 cm2 of marquisette mesh. The reference chamber (P2) contained the same amount of NaOH and the marquisette mesh but without a mosquito. When these two chambers were sealed, removed O2 from P1 resulted in a pressure decrease with respect to P2. This pressure differential was transduced into an output voltage that was directly proportional to the amount of O2 consumed by the mosquito. An array of eight DPTs was interfaced with an IBM 486 PC using an ADAC 5500MF analog to digital converter and software from ADAC (Direct View) to automate the recording procedure. We determined that our apparatus was sensitive enough to detect subtle differences in O2 consumption in mosquitoes subjected to different physiologic conditions.  (+info)

Comparison of the immunogenicity and safety of two 17D yellow fever vaccines. (5/292)

As part of the clinical validation process of a new working seed of a licensed yellow fever vaccine (new working seed PV26, Stamaril; Pasteur Merieux Connaught, Lyon, France), the immunogenicity and safety of two batches of this vaccine (PM-YF) were compared with those of another commercially available vaccine (Arilvax; Evans Medical-Wellcome, Liverpool, United Kingdom) in 211 healthy adults. While the geometric mean titer values at days 10-14 and day 28 after vaccination were higher in the PM-YF group, the vaccines provided equivalent seroprotection (titers > or = 1/10) one month after a single vaccine dose (100% PM-YF versus 99% W-YF; P = 0.001, by one-sided equivalence test). Both vaccines were safe. There were no serious local or systemic reactions reported, nor any clinically significant hepatic function abnormalities associated with the use of either vaccine. These two 17D yellow fever vaccines from different European vaccine manufacturers were highly immunogenic and safe, and provided equivalent seroprotection.  (+info)

Japanese encephalitis vaccine (inactivated, BIKEN) in U.S. soldiers: immunogenicity and safety of vaccine administered in two dosing regimens. (6/292)

The safety and immunogenicity of Japanese encephalitis (JE) vaccine (Nakayama strain, monovalent / BIKEN) was studied in 538 U.S. soldiers in 1990. Three doses of vaccine from three consecutively manufactured lots were given on days 0, 7, and either 14 or 30. Serum for antibody determination was drawn at months 0, 2, and 6. Japanese encephalitis plaque reduction neutralization tests were performed by three laboratories on each specimen. Five hundred twenty-eight (98%) participants completed the immunization series. All recipients without antibody before immunization developed neutralizing antibody against JE virus. There were no differences in geometric mean titer among the three test lots at months 2 and 6. Soldiers who received the third dose on day 30 had higher titers at both time points. Antibody to yellow fever had no significant effect on immune response to vaccine. Conclusions drawn from analysis of serologic data from the three labs were nearly identical. Symptoms were generally limited to mild local effects and were reduced in frequency with each subsequent does in the series (21% to 11%; P < 0.0001). Generalized symptoms were rare (e.g., fever = 5%) with no reported cases of anaphylaxis.  (+info)

Molecular and biological changes associated with HeLa cell attenuation of wild-type yellow fever virus. (7/292)

Six passages of the mosquito-borne flavivirus yellow fever (YF) wild-type strain Asibi in HeLa cells attenuated the virus for monkeys and newborn mice and resulted in loss of mosquito competence. Attenuation after the passage in HeLa cells was not unique to YF virus strain Asibi as demonstrated by the HeLa passage attenuation of wild-type YF virus strain French viscerotropic virus and YF vaccine virus 17D-204 for newborn mice. In contrast, wild-type strain Dakar 1279 and the French neurotropic vaccine virus remained virulent for newborn mice after six passages in HeLa cells. Thus not all strains of YF virus can be attenuated by passage in HeLa cells. Attenuation of YF virus strains Asibi and French viscerotropic virus was accompanied by alterations in the antigenic and biological properties of the viruses, including changes to envelope protein epitopes. Attenuation for newborn mice was coincidental with the acquisition by the HeLa-passaged viruses of the vaccine-specific envelope protein epitope recognized by monoclonal antibody H5. This suggests that this conformational change may play a role in the attenuation process. Wild-type Dakar 1279, which remained virulent for newborn mice after passage in HeLa cells, retained its wild-type antigenic character. The genome of Asibi HeLa p6 virus differed from wild-type Asibi virus by 29 nucleotides that encoded 10 amino acid substitutions: 5 in the envelope protein, 1 in NS2A, 3 in NS4B, and 1 in NS5. The substitution at NS4B-95 is seen in three different attenuation processes of wild-type YF virus, leading us to speculate that it is involved in the attenuation of virulence of wild-type strain Asibi.  (+info)

Ammonia as an attractive component of host odour for the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti. (8/292)

Behavioural responses of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes to ammonia were investigated in a modified Y-tube olfactometer. Ammonia was attractive in concentrations from 17 ppb to 17 ppm in air when presented together with lactic acid. Aqueous solutions of ammonia salts in concentrations comparable to those found in human sweat also increased the attractiveness of lactic acid. The role of lactic acid as an essential synergist for ammonia became further apparent by the fact that ammonia alone or in combination with carbon dioxide was not effective, even though the synergistic effect of carbon dioxide and lactic acid was corroborated. An extract from human skin residues, which attracts approximately 80% of the tested mosquitoes, contains both lactic acid and ammonia. The combination of these compounds, however, attracts no more than 45%, indicating that other components on human skin also play a role in host finding. Preparative liquid chromatography of the skin extract yielded three behaviourally active fractions which work together synergistically. Fraction III contains lactic acid as the effective principle; the compositions of the other two have not been clarified yet. The attractiveness of fraction I was augmented considerably when ammonia was added, whereas the effect of fraction II was not influenced by ammonia. These results suggests that ammonia is part of the effective principle of fraction II and contributes to the attractive effect of host odours.  (+info)

The Ministry of Health is encouraging persons to get vaccinated before travelling to yellow fever affected areas. This follows a recent a rise in yellow fever cases in some parts of Africa and continued risk in some South and Central American countries.. Yellow fever is an acute illness caused by the yellow fever virus which is found in the tropics of South America and Africa. The virus is transmitted by the bite of an infected Aedes aegypti mosquito, the same vector that transmits the chikungunya, dengue and zika viruses. Yellow fever symptoms may be mild and go unnoticed, or may be severe and affect many organ systems. Symptomatic illness begins with fever, chills, headache, backache, general muscle pain, upset stomach, and vomiting. In severe cases where the disease progresses, weakness, jaundice, bleeding of the gums, hematemesis (vomiting of blood) and the presence of blood and protein in the urine may occur. In most patients these symptoms improve after 3 to 4 days.. Yellow fever vaccines ...
The worrying Yellow Fever outbreaks in Africa, specifically in Angola, have aggravated the international shortage of Yellow Fever vaccine.
New research by University of Warwick historian Dr Tim Lockley has found why yellow fever had a green bias in 19th century fever outbreaks in the southern states of the US. Almost half of the 650 people killed by yellow fever in Savannah Georgia in 1854 were Irish immigrants.. Dr Tim Lockley´s study is based on four sources: the burial records of Laurel Grove cemetery; the records of the city´s Catholic cemetery; the minutes of Savannah´s Board of Health; and published lists of the dead in the Savannah Morning News. These sources yielded the names of 650 people who died of yellow fever between early August and the end of November 1854, of which 293 were Irish immigrants (and 10 others were of unknown nationality).. Savannah was not the only southern US city to witness this Irish susceptibility to yellow fever. In nineteenth-century New Orleans annual yellow fever outbreaks killed many Irish and German immigrants. This encouraged a view of yellow fever as less serious than other illnesses such ...

They also bite during the day, a telltale sign.. It is important to know these species of mosquitoes because they are not what were used to in California, the states health officer, Dr. Karen Smith, said.. The yellow fever mosquito was first discovered in California in 2013. Typically, the virus is transmitted when infected travelers returning to California from outside the country transmit it to mosquitoes that bite them. With a bite, those mosquitoes can then infect others..

Brazil is carrying out mass vaccination campaigns for yellow fever in the states of Minas Gerais, Espirito Santo, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Bahia, while strengthening surveillance and case management throughout the country since an outbreak of sylvatic yellow fever began in January. More than 18.8 million doses of vaccine have been distributed, in addition to routine immunization efforts.
Despite previous evidence of high level of efficacy, no synthetic metric of yellow fever (YF) vaccine efficacy is currently available. Based on the studies identified in a recent systematic review, we conducted a random-effects meta-analysis of the serological response associated with YF vaccination. Eleven studies conducted between 1965 and 2011 representing 4,868 individual observations were included in the meta-analysis. The pooled estimate of serological response was 97.5% (95% confidence interval [CI] = 82.9-99.7%). There was evidence of between-study heterogeneity (I2 = 89.1%), but this heterogeneity did not appear to be related to study size, study design, or seroconversion measurement or definition. Pooled estimates were significantly higher (P | 0.0001) among studies conducted in nonendemic settings (98.9%, 95% CI = 98.2-99.4%) than among those conducted in endemic settings (94.2%, 95% CI = 83.8-98.1%).

The development of novel approaches to disease control will be definitely more successful if we better understand the differences and similarities in the genomes ofthe yellow fever and malaria vectors, Sharakhova said.. Although the genome of the yellow fever mosquito was published in 2007, the lack of a detailed physical genome map prevented researchers from analyzing the chromosome genetic composition and evolution. The large size of the yellow fever mosquitos genome - about one third of the human genome size and five times larger than the malaria mosquitos genome - complicated genomic mapping efforts.. The physical genome map developed in this study will guide efforts to significantly improve the genome assembly for the yellow fever mosquito and will facilitate more advanced studies of the genome organization and chromosome evolution in mosquitoes, said Igor Sharakhov, an associate professor of entomology in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, a Fralin Life Science Institute ...

What is Yellow fever? Yellow fever is a disease that is caused by a virus that is spread to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito. This disease is only found in tropical and subtropical areas of the world, primarily South America and Africa. Therefore, only US residents that travel to these foreign countries are at risk for the disease. Yellow fever can be a fatal in approximately 20-50% of people that develop severe symptoms. What are the symptoms of Yellow fever? Most people that are infected with the yellow fever virus have no illness or only very mild illness. For those persons with mild illness, their symptoms will start very quickly and include: high fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, rash, severe headache, pain behind the eyes, and muscle and joint pain. Approximately 15% of persons that experience illness will develop more severe symptoms. Severe symptoms include: high fever, jaundice (a condition of yellow skin and eyes), bleeding, and shock/organ failure. Symptoms of bleeding ...

The mosquito that spreads yellow fever can also carry the Zika virus, dengue fever, and chikungunya.. The Brazilian ministry of health has sent teams to investigate the outbreak, kill mosquitos, and vaccinate residents, as part of an attempt to contain the outbreak. The WHO has warned that states neighboring Minas Gerais are at risk for large outbreaks, since they are also home to the Aedes mosquito, and the population is not vaccinated against yellow fever, since the regions were considered low risk for the disease until recently.. Brazil is still recovering from last years Zika outbreak, which infected an estimated 214,193 people, leading to 2,366 babies born with congenital Zika syndrome from 2015 to 2017.. An outbreak of yellow fever affected Minas Gerais in 2002 and 2003, with 63 people contracting the disease and 23 people killed. Other parts of Brazil have faced more recent outbreaks, including in 2008 and 2009, when 21 cases of the disease and 9 deaths occurred in Rio Grande do Sul and ...

Stamaril is a yellow fever vaccine that contains a live, weakened form of the yellow fever virus. It works by stimulating the bodys immune response to this virus, without causing the disease. The yellow fever vaccine stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies against the yellow fever virus and is given to prevent this disease. One injection is needed and this provides protection against yellow fever from ten days after vaccination. Protection lasts at least ten years, but a booster dose is needed after 10 years if protection against the disease is still required. The yellow fever vaccine is not given routinely in India, but is recommended for people travelling to countries where the disease is found, such as parts of Africa and South America. (1 ...
The conventional guidance has been that the yellow fever vaccination has had to be boosted after ten years, says Dr Helen Rees, chair of SAGE. Looking at really very good evidence, it was quite clear to SAGE that in fact a single dose of yellow fever vaccine is effective. This is extremely important for countries where yellow fever is endemic, because it will allow them to reconsider their vaccine scheduling. It is also important for travelers.. Yellow fever is an acute viral haemorrhagic disease transmitted by infected mosquitoes that is endemic to 44 countries in tropical areas of Africa and the Americas. Infection with the yellow fever virus causes varying degrees of disease, from mild symptoms to severe illness with bleeding and jaundice and fatal outcomes. ...
Reactions to 17D yellow fever vaccine are typically mild. After vaccination, vaccinees have reported mild headaches, myalgia, low-grade fevers, or other minor symptoms for 5--10 days. In clinical trials, where symptoms are actively elicited, incidence of mild adverse events has been ,25% (24,25). Approximately 1% of vaccinees curtail regular activities. Immediate hypersensitivity reactions, characterized by rash, urticaria, or asthma, are uncommon (i.e., an estimated incidence of 1/130,000--250,000) and occur principally among persons with histories of allergies to egg or other substances (26). Gelatin is used as a stabilizer in different vaccines, including yellow fever vaccine. Gelatin has been implicated as a cause of allergic reaction related to other vaccines and, therefore, might also do the same regarding yellow fever vaccine (27--29). Vaccine strain viremia after primary vaccination with yellow fever vaccine frequently occurs among healthy persons, but is usually waning or absent after ...
Yellow fever virus particles (virions), coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM). Yellow fever virus belongs to the Flavivirus family (subgroup arbovirus) and is an enveloped RNA virus. The virus shape is icosahedral with a lipid containing envelop. It is also known as a togavirus. Yellow fever virus is carried by mosquitoes and is common in Africa, Central and South America. In Africa, Aedes sp. is the insect vectors that carry the virus, while in South America, Haemagogus sp. is the insect vector. The yellow fever virus is transmitted to humans when an infected female mosquito bites a human. Symptoms include fever, headache and nausea (flu-like symptoms). In serious cases there may be liver and kidney damage (necrosis), and even death. Yellow fever causes yellowing of the skin due to jaundice. There is no treatment for yellow fever and 5% of those infected die. Yellow fever vaccines can provide immunity. Magnification: x30,195 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres. Original image

I received an e-mail today from one of the many, many travel and tropical medicine listserves I am following. There has been recall of the YF vaccine manufactured by BioMaguinos, headquartered in Brazil. The recall is in response to the 4 Peruvian deaths associated with recent vaccinization, all from the same lot, of this implicated vaccine. Of note, there are 9 lots in total that are being recalled, at present. This larger recall, involving other lots, makes you wonder how widespread the problem vaccines are? This vaccine is widely used in South America.. According to the WHO/PAHO statement, 3 of the 4 deaths have been classified as acute viscerotropic disease following yellow fever vaccination after autopsy, with the 4th case pending. There have only been 37 cased of confirmed or suspected acute viscerotropic disease following yellow fever vaccination, since the disease was first recognized in 2001..

Abstract The cost-effectiveness of preventive yellow fever vaccination versus emergency mass vaccination campaigns for epidemic control remains a matter of controversy. Until recently, Nigeria and other anglophone countries in West Africa most severely afflicted by yellow fever epidemics have followed a policy of emergency control. The effects of including yellow fever 17D vaccine in the Expanded Program of Immunization (EPI) on the immune status of the Nigerian population was studied under conservative assumptions of vaccine coverage and efficacy. The model defined the age-specific prevalence of immunity resulting from vaccination of infants and from natural endemic infection beginning in 1991 and extending over a time horizon of 35 years. The data were used to predict the number of cases and deaths during hypothetical epidemics in 2006 and 2026, representing the historic periodicity of epidemics. A second model was used to demonstrate that a ≥ 60% prevalence of immunity would preclude epidemic

As Angola grapples with its worst yellow fever outbreak in decades, the Ministry of Health, with the support of the World Health Organization (WHO) and partners have extended the vaccination campaign beyond the capital Luanda into Huambo and Benguela - 2 of the other 5 provinces reporting local transmission.. Since the outbreak began in December 2015, 1908 suspected cases of yellow fever have been reported (617 laboratory confirmed) and 250 deaths have been reported. The majority of the cases are concentrated in Luanda and in two other provinces, namely, Huambo and Huila.. In order to contain the outbreak outside the capital, nearly 2.15 million people will be vaccinated in 5 densely populated urban districts in Huambo and Benguela provinces over the coming weeks. Around 1 million people in the 2 provinces have been vaccinated thus far. This targeted vaccination is critical to protect those most at risk countrywide and to stop the further spread of infection by making the best use of available ...
Newsroom America) -- A major part of the largest emergency vaccination campaign against yellow fever ever attempted in Africa has been completed, with more than 7.7 million people vaccinated in record time in the city of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The World Health Organization says this has been accomplished through an extraordinary network of partnerships and collaborations.. In less than two weeks, the campaign successfully reached the targeted population of Kinshasa, most of them (7.3 million people) using an emergency vaccine - one fifth of the full dose of yellow fever vaccine. This dose sparing strategy was recommended by the WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization (SAGE) as a short-term emergency measure to reach as many people as possible given limited supplies of the vaccine.. WHO commends the Government of the DRC for this significant achievement to roll out such a complex campaign in such a short period of time, said Dr Yokouide Allarangar, WHO ...

Twelve cases of yellow fever have been confirmed in the Ivory Coast, making it the second such outbreak in an African country in recent months. In a statement today the World Health Organization (WHO) said the country notified the agency of the cases on Jan 3. Infections have been detected in central and northern regions. A mid-January field investigation by Ivory Coasts health ministry, with assistance from the WHO, identified 64 suspected cases, along with 25 deaths. The Ivory Coast launched an emergency vaccination campaign on Jan 22 targeting 840,000 people ages 9 months and older in four districts. The WHO said the four districts are among 61 that were singled out to receive vaccine in a disease-prevention campaign last year, which could not be held due to political problems. Uganda reported a yellow fever outbreak in October, its first in nearly 40 years. A vaccine campaign targeting the northern part of the country started on Jan 22 ...

Previous studies provided evidence that both YFV infection and YFV-17D infection are rapidly cleared by a type I IFN-mediated innate immune response in mice (7, 12, 13). Indeed, depletion of type I IFN allows extensive viral replication, leading to death or T-cell-mediated clearance during YFV-Asibi or YFV-17D infection, respectively (12, 16). Although YFV-17D inhibits type I IFN signaling in infected cells (15), evidence suggests that type I IFN might have a role in the YFV-17D-induced immunogenicity process in human vaccinees. Analysis of the transcriptome of peripheral immune cells from human vaccinees showed that several genes involved in type I IFN pathways (STAT1) as well as interferon-stimulated genes (ISG15, MX1, and OAS1) are upregulated upon vaccination (41). This correlated with immunogenicity, suggesting a link between the type I IFN response and immunogenicity. However, the precise nature of this link remains to be understood. Although it has been reported that type II IFN signaling ...

Approximately 2,149 suspected and confirmed cases have been reported in Angola, including 277 deaths. The outbreak of yellow fever in Angola poses a threat to the entire world, particularly Asia. There are approximately 100,000 Chinese migrant workers in Angola who could potentially carry the virus home. Immunisation against yellow fever is practically non-existent in China and six unvaccinated workers from China returned from Angola with the virus. Asia is yet to experience a major outbreak of yellow fever, but expanding migration and globalisation make the continent highly susceptible to an epidemic. If we dont want to virus to spread, we must reach the countries where people are not vaccinated against yellow fever. We need rapid mobilisation to contain the outbreak in Angola. Increasing links between China and the African continent pose a risk to Asia, where yellow fever is virtually non-existent. The UN and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have already shipped 9 million doses of vaccine ...
Yellow fever is a virus and infectious disease that can lead to symptoms that range from mild to severe. The disease gets its name from the potential to cause jaundice, or yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes. This occurs because the disease causes problems in the liver that prevent the organ from properly processing bilirubin. This substance is usually broken down in the liver, but when the liver is diseased, bilirubin accumulates in the blood and can present itself outwardly.. Other symptoms of yellow fever may include chills and feverish temperature, body aches, increased risk of bleeding due to blood clotting problems and nausea. In most cases, these symptoms will present themselves within a week of exposure to the virus, meaning you may not realize that you have been affected until after a trip to an area where yellow fever is common. For this reason, it would be a good idea to monitor yourself for symptoms upon returning from overseas travel and limiting your exposure to the public ...

INTRODUCTION. Yellow fever (YF) is an acute viral disease of public health importance in Africa and South America, and of interest for travel clinics in other areas of the world. There is concern about the potential for urban outbreaks of YF in Latin America with the increase in the distribution of the Aedes aegypti, increased intrusion of people into forested areas, and low vaccine coverage.23,25 In Brazil the number of reported YF cases has been increasing in the last ten years peaking in 2000 (85 cases), and approaching more densely populated areas in the Southeast.. YF vaccines have been available since the1930s and constitute the most important method to control the disease. YF vaccines recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) are from 17D and 17DD substrains, which have minor differences in nucleotide sequences.6 Control of viral substrains and serial passage levels through the seed lot system were implemented in the 1940s to avert unwanted alterations in biological properties ...
At the June 2001 meeting of the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP), seven cases of multiple organ system failure (MOSF) in recipients of 17D-derived yellow fever (YF) vaccine were presented (1--3). In response, an ACIP working group was formed to review the cases, assess the risk for serious adverse events following YF vaccination, and consider revision of the 1990 YF vaccination recommendations (4). This notice summarizes these cases and describes an enhanced surveillance program designed to refine risk estimates and improve histopathologic documentation of MOSF potentially associated with YF vaccination. Derived from the original 17D YF vaccine strain, the live, attenuated 17D-204 and 17DD YF strains are the most commonly used YF vaccines (5). In 1999 and 2000, two Brazilian residents aged 5 and 22 years became ill after receiving 17DD YF vaccine administered during a campaign initiated in response to a local YF epidemic. During 1996--2001, five persons aged 56--79 years, ...
