Tick-borne encephalitis virus - a review of an emerging zoonosis.
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
