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.

by Bernard Cazelles, Clara Champagne, Joseph Dureau The spread of disease through human populations is complex. The characteristics of disease propagation evolve with time, as a result of a multitude of environmental and anthropic factors, this non-stationarity is a key factor in this huge complexity. In the absence of appropriate external data sou rces, to correctly describe the disease propagation, we explore a flexible approach, based on stochastic models for the disease dynamics, and on diffusion processes for the parameter dynamics. Using such a diffusion process has the advantage of not requiring a specific mathemat...
With escalating urbanization, the environmental, demographic, and socio-economic heterogeneity of urban landscapes poses a challenge to mathematical models for the transmission of vector-borne infections. Classical coupled vector–human models typically assume that mosquito abundance is either independent from, or proportional to, human population density, implying a decreasing force of infection, or per capita infection rate with host number. We question these assumptions by introducing an explicit dependence between host and vector densities through different recruitment functions, whose dynamical consequences we ex...
In this study, we present a label-free chemiresistive immunosensor for the detection of the DENV NS1 protein utilizing a network of single-walled carbon nanotubes functionalized with anti-dengue NS1 monoclonal antibodies. NS1 was successfully detected in adulterated artificial human saliva over the range of clinically relevant concentrations with high sensitivity and selectivity. It has potential application in clinical diagnosis and the ease of collection allows for self-testing, even within the home.
(Funda ç ã o de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de S ã o Paulo) In Brazil, male specimens with defective sperm are created in lab; manufacturing the transgenic mosquito in large scale could integrate coordinated strategies to control dengue, chikungunya, Zika and yellow fever epidemics.
We refer transmission of infections in India which have implications for Pakistan . As compared to Pakistan, the range and burden of infectious diseases are enormous in India including Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) contagion in 2002 –2003, Influenza A virus epidemic of 2006 (avian influenza), 2007 Equine influenza, Swine flu pandemic outbreaks in 2009 and 2014 . Moreover, episodes of infectious diseases continue to rise in India, with a recent surge of chikungunya and dengue cases in 2016 .

Abstract Dengue is a vector-borne viral illness of major public health importance. It is endemic in many parts of India and also causes frequent epidemics. Platelet transfusions are given in severe cases of dengue fever to treat and prevent hemorrhagic complications. Here, we report three patients in North India with development of panophthalmitis and endophthalmitis shortly after receiving platelet transfusion. PMID: 30062992 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
In this study, it is proposed that target approach for dengue drug discovery based on natural ligands obtained from plant extracts.
Background: Abstract Background: Dengue disease is a major health problem in tropical and subtropical region of the world. Pakistan has also serious issues on this infectious disease in the form of DF, DHF&DSS since 1994 when it was declared the first epidemic in Pakistan. Since then, many epidemics in different cities of Pakistan have been occurring on regular basis. The ever worst epidemic was occurred in 2011 in Punjab province where more than 286857 suspected cases and 21685 confirmed cases with 350 deaths were reported by Health Department.
Background: Diseases transmitted by Aedes aegypti pose new challenges to public health surveillance and preparedness, specially in developing countries. Colombia has geographical and climate conditions adequate for Ae. aegypti, and therefore potentially endemic for dengue, Zika, and chikungunya. Over the last four years, Colombia has had three epidemic waves of these diseases. Additionally, 10% of Colombian population has suffered forced displacement due to armed conflict. Forced displacement increases the burden of these diseases due to the entrance of susceptible populations into endemic areas.
