Time series analysis of dengue fever and weather in Guangzhou, China
Minimum temperature and minimum humidity, at a lag of one month, are positively associated with dengue incidence in the subtropical city of Guangzhou, China, and should be considered in the prediction of future patterns of d Dengue transmission.
Comparative analysis of rodent and small mammal viromes to better understand the wildlife origin of emerging infectious diseases
The results expand the understanding of the viromes of rodents and insectivores in China and suggest that there is high diversity of viruses awaiting discovery in these species in Asia.
Coinfection with four genera of bacteria (Borrelia, Bartonella, Anaplasma, and Ehrlichia) in Haemaphysalis longicornis and Ixodes sinensis ticks from China.
We studied coinfection with four genera of bacteria--Borrelia, Bartonella, Anaplasma, and Ehrlichia--in ticks collected between December 2005 and November 2006 from Zhejiang Province and Liaoning
Distribution of Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) in northwestern China.
Climatic analysis showed that the annual mean temperature higher than 11°C, the mean temperature of the coldest month, January, higher than -5°C and the annual precipitation above 500 mm covered almost all the confirmed areas and the seasonal expansion reached areas with nearly -10°C of the mean January temperature.
Dengue Virus Serotype 3 Subtype III, Zhejiang Province, China
The investigation of an outbreak of illness characterized by rash, headache, subjective fever, itching, anorexia, and arthritis in Yiwu, Zhejiang Province, People’s Republic of China, which was caused by dengue virus (DENV) serotype 3 ( DENV-3) subtype III is presented.
Climate variation drives dengue dynamics
It is demonstrated that climate conditions, through the effects of rainfall and temperature on mosquito abundance and dengue transmission rate, play key roles in explaining the temporal dynamics of d Dengue incidence in the human population.
Epidemiology and vector efficiency during a dengue fever outbreak in Cixi, Zhejiang Province, China.
According to the epidemiological investigation, the incidence of DF had no relationship to temperature, humidity, or precipitation, and the Breteau index of larvae showed a clear relationship only with the House Index and Container Index.
Climate factors and the East Asian summer monsoon may drive large outbreaks of dengue in China.
High Prevalence and Genetic Heterogeneity of Rodent-Borne Bartonella Species on Heixiazi Island, China
A high prevalence (57.7%) and a high diversity (14 unique genotypes which belonged to 8 clades) of Bartonella spp.
Small Mammal Investigation in Spotted Fever Focus with DNA-Barcoding and Taxonomic Implications on Rodents Species from Hainan of China
Based on the results of the phylogenetic and molecular delineation analyses, the systematic status of some rodent species should be redefined and the taxonomic status of three putative species of Niviventer should be further confirmed according to morphological, molecular and ecological characters.
