CONCLUSIONS: The spectrum of neurological complications from dengue virus is broad. There are no reliable data on its real incidence because most of the studies published to date are isolated series or cases. PMID: 31310001 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: Out of 1111 patients with dengue infection, 993 had either thrombocytopenia or hepatic involvement or both. Majority of patients with thrombocytopenia and hepatic dysfunction recovered between 4-7 days of admission i.e 53.98% and 29.20%. Statistically significant corelation of platelet count and aminotransferase levels with recovery or death of the patient was seen in our study. PMID: 31311214 [PubMed - in process]

Dengue and Zika viruses are closely related mosquito-borne flaviviruses responsible for major public health problems in tropical and sub-tropical countries. The genomes of both, dengue and zika viruses encodes ten genes that are translated into 3 structural proteins (C, prM and E) and 7 non-structural proteins (NS1, NS2A, NS2B, NS3, NS4A, NS4B and NS5). The non-structural protein 1 (NS1) is a highly conserved glycoprotein of approximately 48-50 KDa. In infected cells, NS1 is found as a homodimer associated with intracellular membranes and replication complexes, serving as a scaffolding protein in virus replication and morp...

(Natural News) If you’re into green juice, consider adding papaya leaves to your recipes. If you’re not into juicing your greens, however, you might want to reconsider: Drinking papaya (Carica papaya) leaf juice was found to protect against the dreaded dengue virus. A team of researchers from the Ministry of Health in Malaysia conducted a study analyzing...

Many flaviviruses including dengue (DENV), and Zika (ZIKV) have attracted significant attention in the past few years. As many flaviviruses are spread by arthropods, most of the world’s population is at risk of encountering a flavivirus, and infection with these viruses has created a significant disease burden worldwide. Vaccination against flaviviruses is thought to be one of the most promising avenues for reducing the disease burden associated with these viruses. The optimism surrounding a vaccine approach is supported by the highly successful vaccines for yellow fever and Japanese Encephalitis. Central to the deve...

The present study shows that the most prominent human arboviruses worldwide (dengue viruses 1, 2, 3, and 4, Chikungunya virus, and Zika virus) can infect wild animals and jump from urban to sylvatic maintenance cycles in South America, as did the yellow fever virus in the past. All these viruses are transmitted by the anthropophilic mosquito Aedes aegypti and cause epidemics throughout Brazil. The yellow fever virus is the oldest example of an urban arbovirus that became sylvatic in South America. Currently, the disease is a zoonosis of non-human primates that moves like a wave through forests of the Brazilian countryside,...
