Urban yellow fever epidemic in western Nigeria, 1987.
First recorded outbreak of yellow fever in Kenya, 1992-1993. I. Epidemiologic investigations.
TLDR
This was the first documented outbreak of YF in Kenya, a classic example of a sylvatic transmission cycle, and surveillance in rural and urban areas outside the vaccination area should be intensified.
The yellow Fever epidemic in Western mali, september-november 1987: why did epidemiological surveillance fail?
TLDR
The factors that hindered early case detection and more complete reporting were insufficient training on the clinical diagnosis, the blood sampling method for laboratory confirmation, and the curative treatment of patients (resulting in low utilization of services).
DETECTION OF YELLOW FEVER AND DENGUE VIRUSES IN MOSQUITOES BETWEEN 2014 AND 2015 IN BAYELSA AND BENUE STATES OF NIGERIA
TLDR
Female adult mosquitoes caught in and around human dwellings in the Benue and Bayelsa States, Nigeria, were examined for YF and DEN viruses using reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and showed both day and night activities, except the population of A. gambiae from Ega, which typically demonstrated nocturnal activity extended until dawn/early morning hours.
Yellow fever vaccination and pregnancy: a four-year prospective study.
Yellow fever vaccine supply: a possible solution
TLDR
The global threat of the emerging epidemic of yellow fever in Angola is underscored by the recent spread of similar Aedes aegypti mosquito-borne viruses including dengue, chikungunya, and now Zika.
Modelling the large-scale yellow fever outbreak in Luanda, Angola, and the impact of vaccination
TLDR
A refined mathematical model is provided, combined with modern likelihood-based statistical inference techniques, to assess and reconstruct important epidemiological processes underlying Angola’s YF outbreak, which suggests the outbreak occurred in two waves.
Public health importance of mosquito-borne diseases in the Seychelles ( Indian Ocean )
TLDR
Among these agents, the greatest risk of future epidemics is from dengue viruses with a threat for haemorrhagic fever or shock, and Seychelles is free of mosquitoes of the Anopheles family.

Yellow fever in the Gambia, 1978--1979: epidemiologic aspects with observations on the occurrence of orungo virus infections.
TLDR
This outbreak emphasizes the continuing public health importance of YF in West Africa and points out the need for inclusion of 17D YF vaccination in future programs of multiple immunication.
Epidemiological aspects of the 1969 yellow fever epidemic in Nigeria.
TLDR
The Virus Research Laboratory of the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, was notified on 23 October 1969 that cases of suspected yellow fever had occurred in the Jos area and the existence of a widespread outbreak on the Jos Plateau and adjacent areas was established.
The 1970 yellow fever epidemic in Okwoga District, Benue Plateau State, Nigeria. I. Epidemiological observations.
TLDR
A focal epidemic of yellow fever occurred in late 1970 in southern Benue Plateau State, Nigeria, 1 year after a much larger outbreak in northern Nigeria, associated with virus transmission by wild-breeding Stegomyia mosquitos.

TLDR
In 1984 the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) sponsored an international seminar on the treatment and laboratory diagnosis of yellow fever, attended by 37 participants representing Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, the United States, PAHO, and the World Health Organization.
Detection of yellow fever virus in serum by enzyme immunoassay.
TLDR
An antigen-capture ELISA was developed, which used anti-YF antibodies, immobilized on a solid phase (polystyrene plates), to capture YF virus from serum samples, by means of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).
Persistence of neutralizing antibody 30-35 years after immunization with 17D yellow fever vaccine.
TLDR
This study suggests that antibody to 17D YF virus, as measured by the plaque-reduction neutralization test (PRNT), persists for 30 years or more following administration of a potent vaccine.

TLDR
This monograph has two parts, both concerned with standardized CF procedure, and adaptation of the standard LBCF procedure to a micro technique is described, which produces comparable results with minute volumes of reagents by using commercial equipment designed for micro CF techniques.
