[arbovirus diseases in south america and caribbean islands (author's transl)].historically, yellow fever has dominated arboviral diseases in south america and the caribbean and sylvatic cases still occur every year (more than 200 in 1979). the dengue, by the very large number of cases occurring in the area during successive epidemics--the most important being the last one in 1977-1978--is a serious problem for public health, an epidemic of hemorrhagic dengue being a constant threat. encephalitides are the third syndrome of arboviral etiology observed in the south american ...19816116149
clinical and virological descriptive study in the 2011 outbreak of dengue in the amazonas, brazil.dengue is a vector-borne disease in the tropical and subtropical region of the world and is transmitted by the mosquito aedes aegypti. in the state of amazonas, brazil during the 2011 outbreak of dengue all the four dengue virus (denv) serotypes circulating simultaneously were observed. the aim of the study was to describe the clinical epidemiology of dengue in manaus, the capital city of the state of the amazonas, where all the four denv serotypes were co-circulating simultaneously.201424978469
rna interference targets arbovirus replication in culicoides cells.arboviruses are transmitted to vertebrate hosts by biting arthropod vectors such as mosquitoes, ticks, and midges. these viruses replicate in both arthropods and vertebrates and are thus exposed to different antiviral responses in these organisms. rna interference (rnai) is a sequence-specific rna degradation mechanism that has been shown to play a major role in the antiviral response against arboviruses in mosquitoes. culicoides midges are important vectors of arboviruses, known to transmit pat ...201223269795
