Serological studies on the epidemiology of sandfly fever in the Old World.
Human sera from 59 different localities in Africa, the Mediterranean littoral, eastern Europe and Asia were examined by plaque reduction neutralization test against eight sandfly (Phlebotomus) fever virus serotypes known to occur in the Old World.
Phylogenesis of relapsing fever Borrelia spp.
The phylogenetic relationships of 20 relapsing fever (RF) Borrelia spp. were estimated on the basis of the sequences of rrs genes. Complete sequences were aligned and compared with previously
Geographic Genetic Variation in Populations of the Dengue Virus Vector Aedes aegypti
Analysis of FST values, differentiation indexes, and geographic distances separating populations revealed that genetic differences between populations depended on the species' history of migration and colonization.
Global change: impact, management, risk approach and health measures--the case of Europe.
A French group of experts has developed a method for prioritising animal health risks and selected six priority diseases, bluetongue, Rift Valley fever, West Nile fever, visceral leishmaniasis, leptospirosis and African horse sickness, which are likely to impact on the evolution of pathogens and hence of diseases.
Biology and distribution of Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti in Madagascar.
The biology and distribution of the 2 Malagasy Stegomyia species, Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus, is updated and reported. Aedes aegypti is present in the western and southern regions and Ae.
Population structure of Aedes albopictus from La Réunion Island (Indian Ocean) with respect to susceptibility to a dengue virus
Genetic differentiation was found to be dependent on ecological factors and the biological characteristics of Ae.
Influence of breeding sites features on genetic differentiation of Aedes aegypti populations analyzed on a local scale in Phnom Penh Municipality of Cambodia.
This study analyzed genetic differentiation of 20 Aedes aegypti populations collected along a street in Phnom Penh Municipality of Cambodia and demonstrated that populations were differentiated and the pattern of differentiation was dependent on the type of breeding sites.
Genetic differentiation of the dengue vector, Aedes aegypti (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam) using microsatellite markers
Findings implicate human activities associated with urbanization, as factors shaping the genetic structure of Ae.

For a better understanding of the role of bats in the circulation of these viral zoonoses, epidemiologists must pay attention to some of their biologic properties which are not fully documented, like their extreme longevity, their diet, the population size and the particular densities.
Evaluation des risques de reprise de transmission du paludisme en France
Resume Plusieurs cas de paludisme contractes en France ont ete observes ces dernieres annees. A la lumiere des caracteres epidemiologiques des foyes existant autrefois dans notre pays, on peut
