This review comprehensively reviewed TBEV, its epidemiology and pathogenesis, the clinical manifestations of TBE, along with vaccination and prevention, and the factors which may have influenced an apparent increase in the number of reported human cases each year, despite the availability of effective vaccines.
Factors affecting the serological response of dogs and cats to rabies vaccination
After being vaccinated against rabies some cats and dogs fail to show an antibody titre adequate to meet the requirements of the UK Pet Travel Scheme. To investigate this problem, the data derived…
Flavivirus-induced antibody cross-reactivity
It is evident from these data that notable differences exist between amino acid sequence identity and mapped antigenic relationships within the family Flaviviridae.

An overview of LIV is provided and areas where further effort is needed to control this disease are highlighted, particularly those whose occupation involves contact with sheep.
Molecular epidemiological study of Arctic rabies virus isolates from Greenland and comparison with isolates from throughout the Arctic and Baltic regions.
Lyssavirus infection activates interferon gene expression in the brain.
Induction of this response was also observed following infection with the related European bat lyssaviruses, a group of zoonotic viruses capable of causing fatal, rabies-like disease in mammalian species.
