Insect Repellents

Date: July 12, 2021 Issue #:  1628Summary:  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommend using insect repellents to prevent infections transmitted by mosquitoes and ticks. Insect repellents applied to exposed skin should be used in conjunction with other preventive measures such as wearing pants and long-sleeved shirts and avoiding outdoor activities during peak mosquito-biting times. Mosquitoes can transmit diseasecausing pathogens, including Zika, chikungunya, dengue, West Nile, eastern equine encephalitis, and yellow fever viruses, and the malaria parasite. Ticks can transmit the bacteria that cause Lyme disease, the rickettsia that cause Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and viruses such as Powassan virus. Some insect repellents containing EPA-registered active ingredients are listed in Table 1.

ConclusionA growing body of literature has shown an association between SARS ‐CoV‐2 infection and the development of different types of CNS demyelination. Although causality cannot readily be inferred, this review may suggest a probable causal relationship, through a para-infectious or post-infectious immune-mediated etiology in COVID-19 patients. This relationship needs to be clarified in future research.

Mol Cell Biochem. 2022 Jan 21. doi: 10.1007/s11010-021-04326-8. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDengue viruses (DENVs) are the viruses responsible for dengue infection which affects lungs, liver, heart and also other organs of individuals. DENVs consist of the group of four serotypically diverse dengue viruses transmitted in tropical and sub-tropical countries of world. Aedes mosquito is the principal vector which spread the infection from infected person to healthy humans. DENVs can cause different syndromes depending on serotype of virus which range from undifferentiated mild fever to dengue hemorrhagic fever resulting in ...

We present a case of COVID-19 and dengue coinfection in a patient who presented with hemoptysis. Our results demonstrate that COVID-19 and dengue fever are both public health issues in Bangladesh and other dengue-endemic nations and that they can coexist.

Conclusion: Our results not only suggested that host miRNA expression was dynamically altered by H. meleagridis and host, but also revealed that more miRNAs and genes were involved in the later stage of the disease. In addition, host and H. meleagridis regulated the expression of immune and inflammation-related cytokines to respond to H. meleagridis infection. Our results will contribute to future research on miRNA-target interaction during H. meleagridis infection in chickens and provide new ideas for H. meleagridis control.
