Chikungunya: an unexpected emergence in Europe

Current Opinion in Virology

Oct 25, 2016

Fadila Amraoui, Anna-Bella Failloux

Abstract

Since the first outbreak of chikungunya in Italy in 2007, Europe has been facing an increase in local transmission of arboviral diseases. Dengue virus (DENV) and chikungunya virus (CHIKV) are both transmitted by the mosquito Aedes albopictus present in 20 European countries. CHIKV emerg...read more

Chikungunya

Chikungunya fever is a viral disease transmitted to humans by the bite of chikungunya virus infected aedes mosquitoes. Discover the latest research on chikungunya here.

Genetic Epidemiology Of Complex Diseases

Genetic epidemiology examines the role of genetic factors in determining health and disease in populations and the interaction between these genetic factors with environmental factors. Here is the latest research on the genetic epidemiology of complex multifactorial diseases like cancer.

Dengue Virus

Dengue Virus, a mosquito transmitted pathogen, is the causative agent of dengue fever, the most important arboviral disease of humans, which affects an estimated 50-100 million people annually. Discover the latest research here.
