detection of west nile virus in six mosquito species in synchrony with seroconversion among sentinel chickens in india.west nile virus (wnv) is a zoonotic flavivirus maintained in mosquito-bird transmission cycle. although humans are accidental hosts, fatal outcomes following wnv infection have been reported from india. studies have identified wnv as an important etiological agent causing acute encephalitis syndrome in assam, northeast india. while circulation of wnv is evident, the role of vectors and avian hosts involved in the transmission remains unclear. in this study we identified local mosquito species fo ...201728061903
west nile virus infection, assam, the editor: west nile virus (wnv) is a mosquito-borne flavivirus. sporadic infections with this virus have been found in africa, europe, asia, and the united states. in humans, most infections with wnv cause subclinical or a mild influenza-like illness; encephalitis occurs in some (1). in india, antibodies against wnv were first detected in humans in bombay in 1952 (2). virus activity has been reported in southern, central, and western india. wnv has been isolated in india from culex vishnui ...201121529426
vector competence of two indian populations of culex quinquefasciatus (diptera: culicidae) mosquitoes to three west nile virus strains.culex quinquefasciatus is one of the principal vectors of west nile virus (wnv). the mosquito also acts as a bridge vector as it feeds on both birds and humans. in the background of the recent reports of wnv activity in kerala and assam with fatalities, a study was initiated to determine the growth kinetics and transmission mechanisms of three strains of wnv in two populations of cx. quinquefasciatus.201526418647
characterization of west nile virus (wnv) isolates from assam, india: insights into the circulating wnv in northeastern india.west nile virus (wnv) is a mosquito-borne flavivirus that causes subclinical symptoms, febrile illness with possible kidney infarction and encephalitis. since wnv was first serologically detected in assam during 2006, it has become recognized as an important etiological agent that causes acute encephalitis syndrome (aes) in addition to endemic japanese encephalitis virus (jev). therefore, isolating and characterizing the currently circulating strain of wnv is important. the virus was isolated fr ...201424268432
