Background: The importance of tick-borne diseases is increasing all over the world, including Georgia. In Georgia, almost only a few TBDs have been reported in animals and men, involving Lyme Borreliosis [LB], tick-borne relapsing fever [TBRF], tick-borne encephalitis [TBE], Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic Fever [CCHF].

Optimum synthesis of gold nanoparticles was observed at 2 mM concentration of chloroauric acid and the reaction was completed by 60 min at 40 °C. The biomolecules, proteins and polyphenols present in the leaf extract were involved in the bioreduction of chloroauric acid. The synthesized gold nanoparticles were characteriz...

Authors: Sofizadeh A, Hanafi-Bojd AA, Shoraka HR Abstract Background &objectives: Zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ZCL) is among the most endemic zoonotic diseases in Golestan Province of Iran. The aim of this study was to find the high risk areas of this infection by considering the distribution of reservoirs and human infection. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted, in which Rhombomys opimus (Gerbils) were captured from different collection sites across the Golestan Province, Iran. records about the occurrence of Rh. opimus in the Province was obtained from earlier studies and were gathered in ...

Authors: Baruah A, Hazarika RA, Barman NN, Islam S, Gulati BR Abstract Background &objectives: Assam is the most vulnerable state for Japanese encephalitis (JE) in India. The situation warrants characterization of epidemiological patterns of JE in vectors, pigs and human population. This investigation was aimed to determine the relative abundance of mosquito species and seroprevalence of JE in pigs in order to draw an epidemiological association with reported human JE cases in Assam. Methods: Pig sera and mosquitoes from selected farms in Sivasagar and Kamrup districts of Assam were collected fortnightly fo...

Authors: Carvajal TM, Capistrano JDR, Hashimoto K, Go KJD, Cruz MAIJ, Martinez MJLB, Tiopianco VSP, Amalin DM, Watanabe K Abstract Background &objectives: Culex quinquefasciatus is a peridomestic mosquito known for its ability to transmit pathogenic diseases such as filariasis and Japanese encephalitis. The development and use of novel and innovative vector control measures such as the utilization of Wolbachia, along with the existing ones, are necessary to prevent the transmission of these diseases. Studies exploring the diversity of Wolbachia, particularly in Cx. quinquefasciatus are very limited in the Phili...
