Conclusion: In patients with dengue infection, IPF ≥10.0% after defervescence is a predictor of subsequent platelet recovery to a haemostatic level ≥60 × 109/L within 72 hours. PMID: 31809660 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
re AA Abstract Dengue is a re-emerging arbovirus infection of major epidemiological importance. The detection of dengue clusters is an important epidemiological surveillance strategy, contributing to better allocation of control measures and prioritizing areas that are subject to increased risk of transmission. Studies involving human populations with low mobility are scarce, and the current study thus aims to investigate the presence of persistent dengue clusters in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in populations with different mobility and immunity. Epidemiological data on dengue were obtained from the Brazil...
Publication date: Available online 6 December 2019Source: EpidemicsAuthor(s): Tsukushi Kamiya, Megan A. Greischar, Kiran Wadhawan, Benjamin Gilbert, Krijn Paaijmans, Nicole MideoAbstractIdentifying ecological drivers of disease transmission is central to understanding disease risks. For vector-borne diseases, temperature is a major determinant of transmission because vital parameters determining the fitness of parasites and vectors are highly temperature-sensitive, including the extrinsic incubation period required for parasites to develop within the vector. Temperature also underlies dramatic differences in the individual...

Conclusion: Marked difference noted between two groups in Aptt prolongation, INR elevation, ALT level, S.Fibrinogen, CCHF IgM positivity, major bleeding symptoms and CNS involvement while no such major difference seen in other parameters like platelet count, total WBC count and other clinical parameters. Further study with large sample size from indian patients needed to confirm above findings. PMID: 31801328 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: Better management practices and timely reporting can reduce the risk factors associated with the disease. PMID: 31803773 [PubMed]
