Yellow fever (YF) is an emerging expanding fatal arboviral disease that has been imported at least six times in Europe during the first half of 2018, while only seven travel-associated YF cases have been reported in the last 20 years, and none from Brazil. YF has a history of transmission in Europe which could become recurrent considering the wide globalization of competent vectors. This article argues that epidemiological current changes put Europe at risk of YF transmission. Risk assessment and strategies of control are required.

This paper attempts to zone yellow fever risk in La Macarena (department of Meta, Colombia) in terms of environmental hazards and socio-economic vulnerabilities. An ecological study was carried out, i...
Yellow fever virus (YFV) is a vector-borne flavivirus endemic to Africa and Latin America. Ninety per cent of the global burden occurs in Africa where it is primarily transmitted by Aedes spp, with Ae...
The recent yellow fever epidemic in Brazil has raised the concern of outbreaks in neighboring countries, particularly in the Caribbean region where the vector Aedes aegypti is predominant. This threat...
Yellow fever virus is a mosquito-borne flavivirus that causes yellow fever, an acute infectious disease that occurs in South America and sub-Saharan Africa. Most patients with yellow fever are asympto...
We present a case of a 17-year-old female with anti-NMDAR encephalitis probably associated with vaccination against yellow fever. Her symptoms occurred 27 days after vaccination against yellow fever. ...
The objective of this study is to study immune memory generated against the yellow fever vaccine (YFV) in participants who recently received the YFV vaccine. Volunteers who are planning ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether immune globulin can limit the amount of yellow fever vaccine virus present in the blood after vaccination without compromising the immunit...
Yellow fever is an acute viral disease transmitted by mosquitoes in South America, Central America and Africa. It is more prevalente in males gender and the age above 15 years due to the g...
To evaluate the immune status of yellow fever in adults with a history of two or more doses of vaccine, having received the second dose for at least 1 year, compared to re-vaccinated indiv...
This is a Phase IV study cohort, uncontrolled, composed of two segments: children and healthy adults. It will be included 2756 children and 2005 adults, evaluated initially in six differen...
Vaccine used to prevent YELLOW FEVER. It consists of a live attenuated 17D strain of the YELLOW FEVER VIRUS.
The type species of the FLAVIVIRUS genus. Principal vector transmission to humans is by AEDES spp. mosquitoes.
A genus of plant viruses in the family SEQUIVIRIDAE. Transmission is by APHIDS but depends on the presence of a helper protein encoded by the Anthriscus yellow virus, a WAIKAVIRUS. The type species is Parsnip yellow fleck virus (parsnip serotype).
A genus of DNA plant viruses with bacilliform morphology. Transmission in clonally-propagated plants is by vegetative propagation of infected plant materials. Transmission in nature is by mealybugs, seeds, and pollen. The type species is Commelina yellow mottle virus.
An acute infectious disease primarily of the tropics, caused by a virus and transmitted to man by mosquitoes of the genera Aedes and Haemagogus.
Tropical Medicine is the study of diseases more commonly found in tropical regions than elsewhere. Examples of these diseases are malaria, yellow fever, Chagas disease, Dengue, Helminths, African trypanosomiasis, Leishmaniasis, Leprosy, Lymphatic filaria...
