Arboviral Encephalitis
Major groups of arboviruses include those belonging to the Rhabdoviri‐ dae (vesicular stomatitis Indian and bovine ephemeral fever viruses), Reoviridae (bluetongue virus and Colorado tick fever), and Asfarviridae (African swine fever virus; ASFV); all of which have trivial or no roles in causing human diseases.
John H. Cross, B.A., M.A., Ph.D., D.Sc.(h.c.) 1925–2010: A Memorial Bibliography
Abstract A bibliography of 505 publications and 176 presentations authored, coauthored, or edited by the preeminent parasitologist Dr. John H. Cross during the years 1956 through 2007 is presented as
The blood-brain barrier in the cerebrum is the initial site for the Japanese encephalitis virus entering the central nervous system
The permeability of the BBB differentially changed in response to viral infection, leading to the entry of JE virions and/or putatively infected leukocytes from the periphery to the cerebrum as the initial site of infection in the central nervous system (CNS).
Potential Role of Armigeres subalbatus (Diptera: Culicidae) in the Transmission of Japanese Encephalitis Virus in the Absence of Rice Culture on Liu-Chiu Islet, Taiwan
It is concluded that JE likely was transmitted between vertebrate hosts by Ar.
Assessment of neutralizing antibodies elicited by a vaccine (Nakayama) strain of Japanese encephalitis virus in Taiwan
The immunogenicity potency of the antibody induced by the vaccine strain did not have a good coverage against JE5 and effectiveness of the vaccine used at present was apparently not efficient.
Experimental transmission of Japanese encephalitis virus by Culex tritaeniorhynchus and C. fuscocephalus.
Experimental transmission of Japanese encephalitis virus from swine to baby chicks was accomplished using Culex tritaeniorhynchus and Culex fuscocephalus, two of three mosquito species in Taiwan from
