Zika virus and its implication in transfusion safety
Zika virus, a new threat for Europe?
TLDR
The results corroborate the low risk for ZIKV to expand into most parts of Europe with the possible exception of the warmest regions bordering the Mediterranean coastline.
Zika virus
TLDR
Clinicians worldwide need to be aware of Zika virus infection owing to international travel and the presence of another potentially competent mosquito vector (Aedes albopictus) in North America and southern Europe.
The Zika Virus Epidemic in Brazil: From Discovery to Future Implications
TLDR
An overview of the discovery of Zika virus in Brazil, including its emergence and spread, epidemiological surveillance, vector and non-vector transmission routes, clinical complications, and socio-economic impacts is provided.
Phylogeny of Zika Virus in Western Hemisphere, 2015
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the Zika virus was derived directly from 3 of these serum specimens by using next-generation sequencing on the Ion Torrent platform and the raw sequence reads were analyzed and assembled by using the CLC bio Genomics Workbench.
Zika Virus Infection: Damaging Consequences in Humans
TLDR
Based on clinical criteria alone, ZIKV cannot be reliably distinguished from infections with other pathogens that cause an undifferentiated systemic febrile illness, including infections with two common arboviruses, dengue virus and chikungunya virus.
Zika Virus, a New Threat for Europe?
TLDR
The results on vector competence corroborate the low risk for ZIKV to expand into most parts of Europe with the possible exception of the warmest regions bordering the Mediterranean coastline.
Detection of Autochthonous Zika Virus Transmission in Sincelejo, Colombia
TLDR
Zika virus infection in Colombia and a recent ongoing outbreak in Sincelejo, Colombia, with resulting illness characterized by maculopapular rash, fever, myalgia/arthralgia, and conjunctivitis is reported.
Zika virus infection: Past and present of another emerging vector-borne disease.
TLDR
This review summarizes the existing information on Zika virus characteristics, pathogenesis and epidemiology, the available methods for the diagnosis of Zika virus infection and recent approaches for prevention and control.
Zika Virus Outbreak in Haiti in 2014: Molecular and Clinical Data
TLDR
The ZIKV epidemics in South America, as well as in Africa, show complex dissemination patterns and factors contributing to transmission and the possible linkage of this early Haitian outbreak with microcephaly remain to be determined.

The recent temporal and spatial association between the FP ZIKV outbreak and the highly unusual GBS cluster is very likely.
Zika virus outbreak on Yap Island, Federated States of Micronesia.
TLDR
This outbreak of Zika virus illness in Micronesia represents transmission of Zikairus outside Africa and Asia and clinicians and public health officials should be aware of the risk of further expansion of Zika viruses transmission.

Chikungunya virus and the global spread of a mosquito-borne disease.
Chikungunya virus infection is a rapid-onset, febrile disease with intense asthenia, arthralgia, myalgia, headache, and rash. This mosquito-borne alphavirus has spread throughout the Caribbean and
S29 Cough frequency and morbidity in inpatients with acute respiratory disease
TLDR
Cough frequency in acute respiratory disease is high but with high variation, and cough severity showed a significant correlation with 24-hour cough frequency overall, while quality of life did not correlate with cough frequency.
How to quantify coughing: correlations with quality of life in chronic cough
TLDR
Explosive phases and seconds are interchangeable units of cough, moderately related to subjective measures and cough-related quality of life; epochs are a less satisfactory alternative.
A taste for ATP: neurotransmission in taste buds
TLDR
Of interest is that release of ATP by taste receptor cells occurs in a non-vesicular fashion, apparently via gated membrane channels, and a subset of taste cells expresses a specific ectoATPase, NTPDase2, necessary to clear extracellular ATP which otherwise will desensitize the P2X receptors on the taste nerves.
