ABSTRACT We report here the complete coding sequences of two strains of dengue virus type 2, isolated in France from patients returning from Burkina Faso in November 2016. Both strains (cosmopolitan genotype) are almost identical (99.91% nucleotide identity) and closely related to a strain circulating in Burkina Faso in 1983. 

Retrospective Genomic Characterization of a 2017 Dengue Virus Outbreak, Burkina Faso

TLDR
Continual surveillance of dengue virus in Africa is needed to clarify the ongoing novel evolutionary dynamics of circulating virus populations and support the development of effective diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive countermeasures.

Identification of dengue type 2 virus in febrile travellers returning from Burkina Faso to France, related to an ongoing outbreak, October to November 2016

    Euro surveillance : bulletin Europeen sur les maladies transmissibles = European communicable disease bulletin
  • 2016
TLDR
Clinicians should consider dengue fever in malaria-negative febrile travellers returning from Africa, with over 1,000 reported cases between August and November in the capital city.

A Case of Dengue Fever Imported from Burkina Faso to Japan in October 2016.

TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis revealed that the isolate from a patient imported from Burkina Faso belonged to a distinct cluster of sylvatic dengue viruses, suggesting that dengingue viruses have been maintained in mosquitoes and human cycles in BurkINA Faso for more than 30 years.

Dengue virus serotype 2 imported case from Côte d'Ivoire to Senegal, 2017.

TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis based on full-length genome sequence revealed that the isolate clustered with strains of cosmopolitan genotypes from the Burkina Faso outbreak in 2016 and those from the ongoing dengue fever outbreak in Côte d'Ivoire, suggesting a possible spread of strains from the Ouagadougou outbreak to other West African countries.

Emergence of dengue virus serotype 2 in Mauritania and molecular characterization of its circulation in West Africa

TLDR
The data seem to suggest a recent and rapid dispersion of the epidemic strain from the cosmopolitan genotype belonging to West African cosmopolitan lineage II, which is genetically distinct from African sylvatic genotype.

Origin and evolution of dengue virus type 2 causing outbreaks in Kenya: Evidence of circulation of two cosmopolitan genotype lineages

TLDR
The findings from this study have shown the first evidence of circulation of two different Cosmopolitan genotype lineages of DENV-2;Cosmopolitan-I (C-I) and Cosmopolitan-II(C-II), in Kenya, which adds to the growing evidence of expanding circulation and the impact of multiple strains ofDENV in the region as well as globally.

Field Deployment of a Mobile Biosafety Laboratory Reveals the Co-Circulation of Dengue Viruses Serotype 1 and Serotype 2 in Louga City, Senegal, 2017

TLDR
The results showed the co-circulation of two dengue virus serotypes during a single outbreak in a short time period, highlighting the need to improve surveillance in order to prevent future potential severe d Dengue cases through antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE).

Clinical and epidemiologic characteristics associated with dengue during and outside the 2016 outbreak identified in health facility-based surveillance in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

TLDR
Dengue virus is an important pathogen in Burkina Faso, accounting for a substantial proportion of non-malarial fevers both during and outside outbreak, but is only infrequently suspected by clinicians.

Arbovirus circulation among febrile patients at the greater Accra Regional Hospital, Ghana

TLDR
The findings suggested that Dengue and Chikungunya viruses may be circulating but are being missed among febrile patients.

Evaluation of Effectiveness of a Community-Based Intervention for Control of Dengue Virus Vector, Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

TLDR
It is shown that well-planned, evidence/community-based interventions that control exposure to dengue vectors are feasible and effective in urban settings in Africa that have limited resources.

Circulation of Different Lineages of Dengue Virus 2, Genotype American/Asian in Brazil: Dynamics and Molecular and Phylogenetic Characterization

TLDR
There is a delay between the introduction and detection of DENV-2 lineages in Brazil, reinforcing the importance and need for surveillance programs to detect and trace the evolution of these viruses.

Dengue virus life cycle: viral and host factors modulating infectivity

TLDR
An overview of the infectious life cycle of DENV is given and the viral and host factors that are important in controlling DENV infection are discussed.

Phylogenetic relationships and differential selection pressures among genotypes of dengue-2 virus.

TLDR
It is determined that genotypes have experienced different selection pressures, with some evidence of positive selection in the Cosmopolitan genotype and one of the two Asian genotypes, but that the transition from sylvatic to human transmission was not accompanied by adaptive evolution of the E gene.

Dengue Virus Infection in Africa

TLDR
Dengue is likely underrecognized and underreported in Africa because of low awareness by health care providers, other prevalent febrile illnesses, and lack of diagnostic testing and systematic surveillance.

TLDR
Further research is needed to characterise the epidemiology of dengue in Africa and to better understand the factors involved in differences in vulnerability to d Dengue across Africa.

The Need for More Research and Public Health Interventions on Dengue Fever in Burkina Faso

TLDR
The aim in this article is to draw attention to the need for rapid deployment of research and interventions on dengue fever in Burkina Faso, because it appears to have been overlooked, with the focus being, instead, on malaria.

The data and methods used to produce the Version 2 estimates of burden of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy for the year 2000 are summarized and the long-term sequelae of both preeclampsia or eClampsia are not well evaluated.
