Special Issue "Arbovirus Infection"
A special issue of Epidemiologia (ISSN 2673-3986).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2021).
Interests: virus characterization; isolation
Arboviruses—arthropod-borne viruses—are globally emerging and reemerging pathogens that are important causes of human disease throughout the world. Arboviruses are transmitted biologically among vertebrate by hematophagous arthropods, including mosquitoes, ticks, sandflies, and biting midges. Arboviruses include a wide variety of RNA viruses, and members of the Flavivirus and Togavirus genera are the most important arboviruses that cause diseases in humans. Examples include four dengue viruses (DENV), Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV), West Nile virus (WNV), Zika virus (ZIKV), Yellow Fever virus (YFV), tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV), and Chikungunya virus (CHIKV).With the recent outbreak of DENV, YFV, ZIKV, and CHIKV infections, the interest in arbovirus has increased. To develop vaccines and specific therapeutic treatments, it is necessary to determine the viral and host factors enhancing arbovirus infection.
In this Special Issue, we aim to assemble a collection of research papers and reviews that consider serological aspects, molecular features of arboviruses, virus–host interactions, and viral pathogenesis in animal models to promote the discovery of antiviral drugs and vaccine development. We look forward to your submissions.
