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. […]
KerArbo: Role of salivary factors of Aedes albopictus in the permissiveness of human skin cells to Dengue and Chikungunya viruses
Despite intensive research efforts on arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses), many aspects related to immunological consequences of arthropod vector-derived salivary factors are unknown, especially those occurring at the injection site. During a blood meal, arboviruses are […]
Groupe Arbovirus (GA) de l’Unité Environnement et Risques Infectieux a été créé en 2014. Le GA travaille sur les virus transmis par les arthropodes (Arbovirus), avec un intérêt pour les arbovirus émergents ou réémergents […]
