Authors: Gorry C Abstract Meningitis, neuropathy, HIV, dengue-since the 1960s, Cuba has faced its share of epidemics. More recently, Cuban health pro-fessionals tackled domestic outbreaks of H1N1 (2009) and Zika (2016), and worked alongside colleagues from around the world to stem Ebola in West Africa; all three were categorized by WHO as public health emergencies of international concern. In December 2019, China reported its fi rst cluster of pneumo-nia cases, later identifi ed as the novel coronavirus disease COVID-19. In January 2020, Cuban authorities convened a multi-sector working group coordinated by the Min...

Nazira El-Hage Here, we used a mouse model with defective autophagy to further decipher the role of autophagy in the infection and disease of Zika virus (ZIKV)-R103451. Hemizygous (Becn1+/−) and wild-type (Becn1+/+) pregnant mice were transiently immunocompromised using the anti-interferon alpha/beta receptor subunit 1 monoclonal antibody (MAR1-5A3). Despite a low mortality rate among the infected dams, 25% of Becn1+/− offspring were smaller in size and had smaller, underdeveloped brains. This phenotype became apparent after 2-to 3-weeks post-birth. Furthermore, the smaller-sized pups showed a de...

The zika fever is a self-limiting disease caused by the Zika virus (ZIKV) infection, which is transmitted by Aedes aegypti (Weaver et al. 2016). As the first reported epidemics happened in African and Asian continents, ZIKV is classically classified in three lineages: East African, West African, and Asian. Moreover, the Asian lineage is further classified by geographical origin as Micronesian, Cambodian and Malaysian (Haddow et al., 2012). The strains isolated during the outbreak in Brazil were classified as Asian lineage (Faria et al.

ni FR Abstract The placenta works as a selective barrier, protecting the fetus from potential infections that may affect the maternal organism during pregnancy. In this review, we will discuss several challenging infections that are common within Latin American countries and that may affect the maternal-fetal interface and pose risks to fetal development. Specifically, we will focus on emerging infectious diseases including the arboviruses, malaria, leishmaniasis, and the bacterial foodborne disease caused by Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli. We will also highlight some topics of interest currently being stu...

Abstract Flaviviruses such as Zika virus (ZIKV), dengue virus (DENV) and West Nile virus (WNV) are major global pathogens for which safe and effective antiviral therapies are not currently available. To identify antiviral small molecules with well-characterized safety and bioavailability profiles we screened a library of 2,907 approved drugs and pharmacologically active compounds for inhibitors of ZIKV infection using a high-throughput cell-based immunofluorescence assay. Interestingly, estrogen receptor modulators raloxifene hydrochloride and quinestrol were amongst 15 compounds that significantly inhibited ZIKV ...
