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)
An outbreak of Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever occurred in the county of Birjand in eastern Iran in November 2011. Four cases were involved in this outbreak. Two patients died after admission to hospital, one of whom was a nurse who acquired the infection nosocomially, and the others were treated successfully.
Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) virus is a tick-borne member of the genus Nairovirus, family Bunyaviridae. CCHF virus has been isolated from at least 31 different species of ticks. The virus is transmitted through the bite of an infected tick or by direct contact with CCHF virus-infected patients or the products of infected livestock. This study was(More)
Bone wound created in intramembranous alveolar bone heals without the formation of cartilage precursor tissue. However, the expression of cartilage collagen mRNAs has been suggested. In this report, we examined the expression and the potential role of type IX collagen in bone restoration and remodeling. The sequence specific polymerase chain reaction(More)
A comprehensive study was conducted on camel ticks to assess the epidemiological aspects of the infection in camels. From May 2012 to January 2013, 11 cities and towns from the Khorasan provinces, northeastern Iran, were randomly selected as a "cluster" and at least 14 camels were sampled from each cluster. A total of 200 camels were examined in this study,(More)
Dengue fever is one of the most important arthropod-borne viral diseases of public health significance. It is endemic in most tropical and subtropical parts of the world, many of which are popular tourist destinations. The presence of dengue infection was examined in Iranian patients who were referred to the Arboviruses and Viral Haemorrhagic Fevers(More)
This study was undertaken to determine the seroprevalence of West Nile virus (WNV) in human and equine sera in Iran. Blood samples were tested from 300 human samples and 315 equine samples in five geographic zones of north and central parts of Iran between 2010 and 2012. All samples were tested for the immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody to WNV by using an(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 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)
