The East/Central/South African genotype of Chikungunya virus with the E1-A226V mutation emerged in 2011 in Cambodia and spread in 2012. An outbreak of 190 cases was documented in Trapeang Roka, a rural village. We surveyed 425 village residents within 3–4 weeks after the outbreak, and determined the sensitivity and specificity of case definitions and factors associated with infection by CHIKV. Self-reported clinical presentation consisted mostly of fever, rash and arthralgia. The presence of… Expand
Broad and long-lasting immune protection against various Chikungunya genotypes demonstrated by participants in a cross-sectional study in a Cambodian rural community
TLDR
Cross-reactivity confirms that the investigated CHIKV strains belong to a single serotype despite the emergence of novel ECSA genotype viruses and supports the importance of the development of a Chikungunya vaccine. Expand
Long-Term Persistence of Chikungunya Virus-Associated Manifestations and Anti-Chikungunya Virus Antibody in Southern Thailand: 5 Years After an Outbreak in 2008-2009.
TLDR
In some cases with persistent arthralgia, atypical manifestations, including severe depression with suicide attempts, severe weight loss, and severe hair loss, were found, and some patients still experienced severe joint pain. Expand
Chikungunya virus in Asia – Pacific: a systematic review
TLDR
A substantial but poorly documented burden of CHIKV infection in the Asia-Pacific region is indicated and an evidence-based consensus on typical clinical features of chikungunya could aid in enhanced diagnosis and improved surveillance of the disease. Expand
Epidemiological Evidence for Lineage-Specific Differences in the Risk of Inapparent Chikungunya Virus Infection
TLDR
This study quantifies and provides the first epidemiological evidence that chikungunya epidemic characteristics are strongly influenced by CHIKV lineage and suggested that more inapparent infections are associated with the Asian lineage than the East/Central/South African (ECSA) lineage. Expand
Chikungunya Virus Infection: Why Should U.S. Geriatricians Be Aware of It?
TLDR
This review will examine reasons why CHIKV has become such a threat to the United States and consider factors that contribute to the greater burden and effect of this disease in elderly adults, and possible therapeutic approaches that best fit the unique needs of older adults. Expand
Aetiology of acute meningoencephalitis in Cambodian children, 2010–2013
TLDR
The majority of aetiologies identified for paediatric AME in Cambodia were vaccine preventable and/or treatable with appropriate antimicrobials. Expand
The neurological manifestations of Zika and chikungunya viruses
TLDR
A systematic review of neurological disease associated with chikungunya virus highlights the wide spectrum of disease in adults and children, its importance in vertical transmission in neonates, comparison with Zika and dengue viruses and recent insights into disease mechanisms. Expand
Current Efforts in the Development of Vaccines for the Prevention of Zika and Chikungunya Virus Infections
TLDR
A brief overview on Zika and Chikungunya viruses, the etiology and epidemiology of the illnesses they cause and the host immune response against them are provided, before summarizing past and current efforts to develop vaccines to alleviate the burden caused by these emerging diseases. Expand
Effects of Chikungunya virus immunity on Mayaro virus disease and epidemic potential
TLDR
It is suggested that CHIKV infection can confer cross-protective effects against MAYV, and the resultant reduction in viremia may limit the emergence potential of MAYV. Expand

Seroprevalence of Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) infection on Lamu Island, Kenya, October 2004.
TLDR
The seroprevalence findings suggested that the outbreak was widespread, affecting 75% of the Lamu population; extrapolating the findings to the entire population, 13,500 (95% CI, 12,458-14328) were affected. Expand
An outbreak of chikungunya in southern Thailand from 2008 to 2009 caused by African strains with A226V mutation.
TLDR
Based on phylogenetic analysis, the CHikV strains isolated belong to African genotypes harboring the E1 A226V mutation, indicating a single origin of the 2004-2009 CHIKV outbreaks. Expand
Chikungunya outbreak--Cambodia, February-March 2012.
TLDR
The characteristics of a local outbreak linked with chikungunya reemergence in a rural Asian setting are described and public health agencies and policymakers in affected and nearby unaffected areas of Asia and elsewhere should be alert to the potential spread and reemERGence of CHIKV. Expand
Seroprevalence and Risk Factors of Chikungunya Virus Infection in Mayotte, Indian Ocean, 2005-2006: A Population-Based Survey
TLDR
The findings indicate that roughly one out of four CHIKV infections is asymptomatic, and conditions associated with poverty may be considered as critical in CHikV acquisition, which should be taken into account in the development of future prevention strategies ofCHIKV disease. Expand
First report of chikungunya from the Maldives.
TLDR
An outbreak, characterised by fever, arthralgia and myalgia, in Malé and other islands of the Maldives began in December 2006 and was confirmed as being due to chikungunya virus by the Department of Public Health in April 2007. Expand
Chikungunya virus outbreak in Kerala, India, 2007: a seroprevalence study.
TLDR
A post-epidemic survey to estimate seroprevalence status [immunoglobulin G (IgG)] in the community using commercially available indirect immunofluorescence test provides an insight into the magnitude of CHIKV outbreak in Kerala. Expand
Emergence of chikungunya in Moonlapamok and Khong Districts, Champassak Province,the Lao People's Democratic Republic, May to September 2012.
TLDR
These outbreaks of chikungunya show the effectiveness of health care worker event-based surveillance and the importance of sharing of information across borders for detecting emerging diseases. Expand
Seroprevalence and distribution of arboviral infections among rural Kenyan adults: A cross-sectional study
TLDR
For all arboviruses, district of residence was strongly associated with seropositivity, andSeroprevalence to YFV, DENV, WNV and WNV increased with age, while there was no correlation between age and seropposivity for CHIKV, suggesting that much of the seroposivity to CHikV is due to sporadic epidemics.
