Neuroinvasive flavivirus infections

A detailed insight into specific factors priming towards neuroinvasive disease is of clear clinical significance, as well as importance to the development of antiviral therapies and identification of key mechanisms involved in the (re)emergence of specific flaviviruses as neuroin invasive pathogens.

Flaviviruses : Yellow Fever, Japanese B, West Nile, and Others

The Flaviviruses comprise a group of related viruses that are highly diverse in their ecological niches, life-cycles, evolution and disease manifestations in humans. Common among them is their

[Pathogenic mechanisms of Tick-borne Flaviviruses].

The findings of the unique virus-host interaction in central nerve system will improve further understanding of the molecular mechanisms of viral replication and the pathogenicity of neurotropic viruses.

Chikungunya Fever: Biology and Epide- miological Aspects

This chapter summarizes the current knowledge about the epidemiology and clinical significance of chikungunya virus, mosquito vector, prevention and control measures.

Flavivirus Receptors: Diversity, Identity, and Cell Entry

Current knowledge on host-pathogen interactions, virus entry strategies and tropism is reviewed on two haemorrhagic flaviviruses, dengue virus and yellow fever virus, and two neurotropic flavivIRuses, Japanese encephalitis virus and Zika virus.

The Complement System in Flavivirus Infections

The role of complement system inhibition and/or activation against infection by the Flavivirus genus, with an emphasis on dengue and West Nile viruses is explored.

Tick-borne encephalitis virus - a review of an emerging zoonosis.

This review comprehensively reviewed TBEV, its epidemiology and pathogenesis, the clinical manifestations of TBE, along with vaccination and prevention, and the factors which may have influenced an apparent increase in the number of reported human cases each year, despite the availability of effective vaccines.

Zoonotic encephalitides caused by arboviruses: transmission and epidemiology of alphaviruses and flaviviruses

This review focuses on zoonotic encephalitides caused by arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses) of the families Flaviviridae and Togaviridae that are important in both humans and domestic animals that have dispersed widely and currently cause diseases around the world.



The Japanese encephalitis serological group of flaviviruses: a brief introduction to the group.

The most recent example of the emergence of WN virus in New York and its subsequent spread in the eastern seaboard of the United States, was almost certainly due to inadvertent human involvement through transportation of either a viraemic human or bird, or an infected mosquito, from Israel or the Middle East.

Tick-borne encephalitis.

West Nile virus and other zoonotic viruses in Russia: examples of emerging-reemerging situations.

The emerging WNF situation in Russia for the last 4 years probably has been the result of not only natural and social factors, but also to introduction of more virulent strains or by evolution of the virus.

Aedes aegypti vectorial capacity is determined by the infecting genotype of dengue virus.

Much earlier appearance of dengue virus in salivary glands resulted in an estimated 2- to 65-fold increase in the vectorial capacity of these mosquitoes for the viruses that can cause DHF, which may be one of the mechanisms through which more virulent flaviviruses spread and displace others globally.

West Nile fever--a reemerging mosquito-borne viral disease in Europe.

Environmental factors, including human activities, that enhance population densities of vector mosquitoes (heavy rains followed by floods, irrigation, higher than usual temperature, or formation of ecologic niches that enable mass breeding of mosquitoes) could increase the incidence of West Nile fever.

Immunopathological mechanisms in dengue and dengue hemorrhagic fever

The immune mechanisms that lead to d Dengue hemorrhagic fever are complex and need to be elucidated further for the development of therapeutics as well as safe and efficacious dengue vaccines.

Pathogenesis and clinical features of Japanese encephalitis and West Nile virus infections.

The clinical features of infection with JE and WN viruses are described and the extent to which pathophysiological and pathological studies explain these features are considered.

An arbovirus cline across the northern hemisphere.

The continuous distribution of the tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) complex viruses, the most important flaviviruses in Europe, across major geographical areas and the conditions under which mutations occur are described.

Transovarial transmission of dengue 2 virus by Aedes aegypti in nature.

Dengue 2 virus was recovered from three of 123 pools of naturally infected Aedes aegypti larvae collected from water containers in Rangoon, suggesting that transovarial transmission of dengue virus occurs in nature.

Serological evidence of West Nile virus, Usutu virus and Sindbis virus infection of birds in the UK.

The detection of specific neutralizing antibodies to WNV in birds provides a plausible explanation for the lack of evidence of a decrease in the bird population in the UK compared with North America.
