Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever is a viral infection that is caused by Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV). On May 27, 2012, a woman became ill after accidentally splashing cow’s blood into her eyes. Serological and molecular investigations were carried out on the serum of the patient. The test results for serological testing were negative, but(More)
A. Detection and identification of Toscana and other phleboviruses by RT-nested-PCR assays with degenerated primers. To the Editor: West Nile virus (WNV) is a single-stranded, positive-sense RNA virus (≈11 kb) that is taxo-nomically classified within the family Flaviviridae, genus Flavivirus. WNV is found in Africa, Eurasia, Australia, and North America(More)
BACKGROUND This comprehensive study was conducted on multi-purpose one-humped camel (Camelus dromedarius) sera and ticks to assess the epidemiological aspects of the Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV) in northeast Iran. METHODS From May 2012 to January 2013, eleven cities were randomly selected in the Khorasan Provinces of Iran as "clusters,"(More)
BACKGROUND Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever Virus (CCHFV) belongs to genus Nairovirus and family Bunyaviridae. The main aim of this study was to investigate the extent of recombination in S-segment genome of CCHFV in Iran. METHODS Samples were isolated from Iranian patients and those available in GenBank, and analyzed by phylogenetic and bootscan methods.(More)
BACKGROUND Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV) is a member of the Bunyaviridae family and Nairovirus genus. It has a negative-sense, single stranded RNA genome approximately 19.2 kb, containing the Small, Medium, and Large segments. CCHFVs are relatively divergent in their genome sequence and grouped in seven distinct clades based on S-segment(More)
