Comparison Between Larval Survey Index and Positive Ovitrap Index in the Evaluation of Populations of Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti (Linnaeus, 1762) North of Paraná, Brazil. Environ Health Insights. 2020;14:1178630219886570 Authors: Nascimento KLC, da Silva JFM, Zequi JAC, Lopes J Abstract Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti (Linnaeus, 1762) is one of the world's most widely distributed mosquitoes and is the vector of the dengue virus, one of the most important reemerging diseases. Besides dengue, A. aegypti can also transmit urban yellow fever, chikungunya, and Zika virus, making it of great medical importa...

Background: Liver involvement in dengue illness is common and can lead to acute liver failure (ALF). No single method can effectively identify patients at risk for disease progression and bad outcome. We aimed to determine the relationship between liver dysfunction, kinetics of liver function tests (LFTs) and severity of hepatitis on the outcome in pediatric dengue illness. Methods: We conducted a prospective observational study of hospitalized children (1–12 years) with dengue infection (July 2014–July 2015). Serial monitoring of LFTs was done in confirmed dengue cases. Patients were classified into non-s...

(University of California - San Diego) An international team of scientists has synthetically engineered mosquitoes that halt the transmission of the dengue virus. Led by biologists at UC San Diego, the researchers developed a human antibody for dengue suppression in Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, the insects that spread dengue. The development marks the first engineered approach in mosquitoes that targets the four known types of dengue, improving upon previous designs that addressed single strains.
