infeng Han Wenjun Ma Rui Wu The Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV), a causative agent of severe viral encephalitis in humans, has a biological cycle fluctuating between transmission in mosquitoes and avian species and amplification in pigs. Contact transmission of JEV was recently shown in pigs in the absence of arthropod vectors. Here, we show JEV transmission between infected and contact mice and further demonstrate that JEV transmission occurs between animals via aerosols, as both viral RNA and infectious JEV were detected in direct contact- and aerosol-exposed contact animals. The results of this study change ou...

Conclusion: This study is one of the largest series about VPA-induced NE. NE is a side effect of VPA that is generally overlooked by clinicians and slightly less well-known too. The literature on VPA-induced NE is very inadequate, and its etiology is not clear. In our study, we did not detect renal dysfunction in the patients with VPA-induced NE; therefore, we may speculate that the NE was caused by the increased sleep depth with VPA treatment. We believe that larger prospective studies including polysomnography may be helpful to shed light on the cause of VPA-induced NE.
