west nile virus surveillance in mosquitoes, april to october 2013, vojvodina province, serbia: implications for the 2014 season.after the west nile virus (wnv) outbreak in 2012, we collected mosquito samples from vojvodina province, serbia, in 2013. we found high wnv infection rate in two species, culex pipiens and anopheles maculipennis. phylogenetic analysis showed that serbian wnv strains from 2013 were most closely related to italian and greek strains isolated in 2012 and 2010, respectively. public health authorities should be aware of a potentially increased risk of wnv activity during the 2014 season.201424786260
epidemics of the central nervous system infections caused by west nile virus in the territory of the south backa district, vojvodina, serbia.west nile virus (wnv) is a neurotropic rna virus particle which belongs to the flaviviidae family, genus flavivirus. it is sustained in arthropods within the transmission cycle between the mosquitoes and birds. most commonly (80% of cases) wnv infections are asymptomatic among people. less than 1% of patients develop neuroinvasive forms of the disease--meningitis, encephalitis, or acute flaccid paralysis. the aim of the research was to determine most common clinical and laboratory manifestations ...201526898034
west nile virus 'circulation' in vojvodina, serbia: mosquito, bird, horse and human surveillance.efforts to detect west nile virus (wnv) in the vojvodina province, northern serbia, commenced with human and mosquito surveillance in 2005, followed by horse (2009) and wild bird (2012) surveillance. the knowledge obtained regarding wnv circulation, combined with the need for timely detection of virus activity and risk assessment resulted in the implementation of a national surveillance programme integrating mosquito, horse and bird surveillance in 2014. from 2013, the system showed highly satis ...201727777104
monitoring west nile virus (wnv) infection in wild birds in serbia during 2012: first isolation and characterisation of wnv strains from serbia.west nile virus (wnv), a neurovirulent mosquito-transmissible zoonotic virus, has caused recent outbreaks in europe, including serbia from august until october 2012. although humans can be infected, birds are the main natural wnv reservoir. to assess wnv circulation in northern serbia, 133 wild birds were investigated. these comprised resident and migratory birds, collected between january and september 2012 in the vojvodina province. the birds belonged to 45 species within 27 families. blood se ...201324176657
