Could Homeopathy Become An Alternative Therapy In Dengue Fever? An example Of 10 Case Studies.

Conclusions:A need for further, larger studies is indicated by this evidence, to precisely define the role of homeopathy in treating dengue fever. This study also emphasises the importance of individualised treatment during an epidemic for favourable results with homeopathy.

With India described as the epicenter of dengue, contributing significantly to the global dengue epidemic, the country is also poised to play a key role in contributing towards the WHO 2020 targets of reducing dengue deaths by 50% and dengue cases by 25%. This Supplement seeks to integrate research findings within India, provide a platform for dissemination of current dengue research, and encourage future dengue control activities under the leadership of the Indo-US Vaccine Action Program and the Indian government .

We described ZIKV and DENV serological markers and the maternal-fetal t ransfer of antibodies among mothers and neonates after the ZIKV microcephaly outbreak in Northeast Brazil (2016). We included 89 microcephaly cases and 173 neonate controls at time of birth and their mothers. Microcephaly cases were defined as newborns with a particular head circumference (2 SD belo w the mean). Two controls without microcephaly were matched by the expected date of delivery and area of residence. We tested maternal serum for recent (ZIKV genome, IgM and IgG3 anti-NS1) and previous (ZIKV and DENV neutralizing antibodies [NAbs]) markers ...

CONCLUSION : A mathematical spatial-temporal self-organization was found in the proportion of severe dengue with respect to the total, which allows establishing useful predictions for decision-making in public health. PMID: 30844009 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION : Dengue is associated to several factors related to its epidemic outbreak. In this complex context, results suggest that this infectious disease is socially conditioned, since it is more likely to reach population groups with specific characteristics, notably those with low socioeconomic status.

by Giovanni Marini, Giorgio Guzzetta, Cecilia A. Marques Toledo, Mauro Teixeira, Roberto Ros à, Stefano Merler Management of vector population is a commonly used method for mitigating transmission of mosquito-borne infections, but quantitative information on its practical public health impact is scarce. We study the effectiveness of Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) insecticide spraying in public spaces for preventin g secondary dengue virus (DENV) cases in Porto Alegre, a non-endemic metropolitan area in Brazil. We developed a stochastic transmission model based on detailed entomological, epidemiological and population data,...

Abstract Constant monitoring of Aedes vector indices such as Aedes mosquito abundance and ovitrap data is important for the control of dengue epidemics. Therefore, the current study attempted to evaluate the effect of larval and climatic factors on the incidence of dengue outbreaks in the Gampaha district. Based on the distribution of previously reported dengue cases, 34 households in Narangodapaluwa PHI area, Ragama, Sri Lanka, were selected randomly, and entomological surveillance was done fortnightly using adult mosquito catches and larval surveillance techniques for a period of two years. Further, weekly ovitr...

Recent article in this Journal has reported dengue patients were associated with a higer risk of autoimmune diseases than non-dengue patients 1. Dengue has been a serious public health problem in the world, the number of dengue epidemics has been on the rise worldwide. Before 1970, only nine countries had experienced severe dengue epidemics; however, currently more than 100 countries have been severely affected by dengue 2. After the first dengue-fever epidemic in China, which occurred in May 1978 in Foshan, Guangdong Province, there have been regional outbreaks of dengue every year and the number of cases has increased.

Abstract The mosquito Aedes aegypti is a transmission vector for dangerous epidemic diseases in humans. Insecticides have been used as the most general vector control method in the world. However, Ae. aegypti have developed many resistant mechanisms such as reduced neuronal sensitivity to insecticides (target-site resistance), enhanced insecticide metabolism (metabolic resistance), altered transport, sequestration, and other mechanisms. It has become a major problem for vector control programs. Transcriptome sequencing and bioinformatic analysis were used to compare transcription levels between a susceptible strai...
