Vector Virus That Causes

Background. On 1 February 2016 the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the clusters of microcephaly and Guillain-Barr Syndrome having a temporal association with transmission of Zika virus as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.Adeno-associated virus (AAV) is a small virus which infects humans and some other primate species. AAV is not currently known to cause disease.The virus causes a very mild immune response lending further support to its apparent lack of pathogenicity.In many cases AAV vectors integrate into the host cell genome which can be important Amblyomma cooperi vector of Rickettsia rickettsii Amblyomma hebraeum (African cattle bont ticks) vector of Rickettsia africae.An engorgement factor termed voraxin (a cocktail of 2 peptides that are upregulated in the testis and vas deferens of fed but not unfed males they have no effect on female feeding if given alone) transferred from

A retrovirus is a single-stranded positive-sense RNA virus with a DNA intermediate and as an obligate parasite targets a host cell.Once inside the host cells cytoplasm the virus uses its own reverse transcriptase enzyme to produce DNA from its RNA genome the reverse of the usual pattern thus retro (backwards). The new DNA is then Chikungunya. What It Is. Chikungunya virus (ChikV) (chik-un-GOON-ya) is transmitted by mosquitoes and causes joint pain and severe arthritis. Its not normally fatal but is extremely painful and symptoms can last for weeks or even months.Vector-borne diseases account for more than 17% of all infectious diseases causing more than 700 000 deaths annually. More than 3.9 billion people in over 128 countries are at risk of contracting dengue with 96 million cases estimated per year. Malaria causes more than 400 000 deaths every year

Information on Zika virus. Provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.History of Zika. Zika virus was first discovered in 1947 and is named after the Zika Forest in Uganda. In 1952 the first human cases of Zika were detected and since then outbreaks of Zika have been reported in tropical Africa
