Alphavirus myopathies and arthritis: modeling and understanding the mechanisms of disease development and persistence
Arthropod-borne alphaviruses are distributed worldwide and cause considerable human morbidity and mortality. Alphaviruses cause a variety of human diseases, with clinical signs varying from fever or rash to significant inflammatory pathologies including encephalitis (e.g. […]
Role of mosquito saliva in the transmission of Rift Valley fever virus
State of the art and objectives Traditional means of controlling arbovirus diseases include vaccination of susceptible vertebrates and mosquito control, but in many cases these have been unavailable or ineffective. The increased disease […]
Transmission of japanese encephalitis by European Culex pipiens and Aedes albopictus
Japanese encephalitis cases are mostly found in the Asia-Pacific region and this restriction is linked to the geographical distribution of JEV main vector, Culex tritaeniorhynchus. In order to assess the potential for JEV emergence […]
Host-vector-pathogen interaction in Zika infection
The main vectors of Zika virus are Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. Aedes albopictus mosquitoes were found to be competent in laboratory experiments. Within the context of the possible emergence of this virus in Europe, […]
