prevalence of neutralizing antibodies to japanese encephalitis virus among high-risk age groups in south korea, 2010.after an extensive vaccination policy, japanese encephalitis (je) was nearly eliminated since the mid-1980s in south korea. vaccination in children shifted the affected age of je patients from children to adults. however, an abrupt increase in je cases occurred in 2010, and this trend has continued. the present study aimed to investigate the prevalence of neutralizing antibodies to the je virus (jev) among high-risk age groups (≥40 years) in south korea. a plaque reduction neutralization test wa ...201626807709
detection of japanese encephalitis virus genotype v in culex orientalis and culex pipiens (diptera: culicidae) in korea.japanese encephalitis virus (jev) causes significant viral encephalitis and is distributed throughout the asian countries. the virus is known to be transmitted by culex tritaeniorhynchus, which mainly breeds in rice paddies in korea. in this study, we investigated the presence of other mosquito species that can transmit jev as a second or regional vector. we selected five cities where patients have experienced je in the last 5 years as mosquito-collecting locations and subdivided them into four ...201525658839
the effects of climate change and globalization on mosquito vectors: evidence from jeju island, south korea on the potential for asian tiger mosquito (aedes albopictus) influxes and survival from vietnam rather than japan.climate change affects the survival and transmission of arthropod vectors as well as the development rates of vector-borne pathogens. increased international travel is also an important factor in the spread of vector-borne diseases (vbds) such as dengue, west nile, yellow fever, chikungunya, and malaria. dengue is the most important vector-borne viral disease. an estimated 2.5 billion people are at risk of infection in the world and there are approximately 50 million dengue infections and an est ...201323894312
