The inexorable emergence of mosquito-borne arboviruses and the failure of traditional vector control methods to prevent their transmission have triggered the development of alternative entomological i...
Two species of mosquitoes ( and ) are primary vectors for emerging arboviruses that are a significant threat to public health and economic burden worldwide. Distribution of these vectors and the asso...
Dengue is one of the deadliest mosquito-borne disease prevalent mainly in tropical and sub-tropical regions. Controlling the spread of this disease becomes a major concern to the public health authori...
We present an improved mathematical model of population dynamics of mosquito-borne disease transmission. Our model considers the effect of mosquito repellent use and the mosquito's behavior or attract...
The proven ability of vector mosquitoes to adapt to various strategies developed to control them has enabled mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue, and lymphatic filariasis to remain entrenc...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of AGS-v PLUS, a universal mosquito-borne disease and mosquito control vaccine, in healthy volunteers.
This is a multi-center case-control study that aims to define the association between the exposure to an arbovirus infection and the development of a neurological syndrome in patients from...
Mosquito-borne diseases continue to cause significant morbidity and mortality worldwide despite on-going control efforts. In 2015, there were >200 million cases of malaria worldwide, causi...
Dengue viruses are the most medically important arthropod-borne pathogens worldwide, with transmission occurring in most tropical and sub-tropical regions. An estimated 390 million infecti...
The dengue, Zika and chikungunya arboviruses represent potentially severe infections to which the New Caledonian population is exposed. In the absence of specific treatment or vaccine, vec...
An acute tick-borne arbovirus infection causing meningoencephalomyelitis of sheep.
Infections caused by arthropod-borne viruses, general or unspecified.
The use of biological mechanisms, usually involving living organisms such as bacteria, for the reduction or regulation of the population of noxious, destructive, or dangerous pests. Environmental concerns have focused attention on natural forms of disease control as potentially safe and effective alternatives to chemical pesticides. This has led to increased efforts to develop control strategies that rely on natural predators and parasites or that involve genetically engineered microbial pest control agents.
A species of the genus FLAVIVIRUS which causes an acute febrile and sometimes hemorrhagic disease in man. Dengue is mosquito-borne and four serotypes are known.
The reduction or regulation of the population of mosquitoes through chemical, biological, or other means.
