Treatment of West Nile Virus With MGAWN1

2014-08-27 03:21:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study will test a drug called MGAWN1 for the treatment of West Nile infections.

Description

The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics of MGAWN1 in subjects with West Nile Fever or a syndrome compatible with West Nile Neuroinvasive Disease (WNND) [encephalitis, meningitis, or acute flaccid paralysis]. Subjects can be enrolled based on a syndrome compatible with WNND, and do not need documented West Nile virus infection.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A mosquito-borne viral illness caused by the WEST NILE VIRUS, a FLAVIVIRUS and endemic to regions of Africa, Asia, and Europe. Common clinical features include HEADACHE; FEVER; maculopapular rash; gastrointestinal symptoms; and lymphadenopathy. MENINGITIS; ENCEPHALITIS; and MYELITIS may also occur. The disease may occasionally be fatal or leave survivors with residual neurologic deficits. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1996, Ch26, p13; Lancet 1998 Sep 5;352(9130):767-71)

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent infection with WEST NILE VIRUS.

A species of FLAVIVIRUS, one of the Japanese encephalitis virus group (ENCEPHALITIS VIRUSES, JAPANESE). It can infect birds and mammals. In humans, it is seen most frequently in Africa, Asia, and Europe presenting as a silent infection or undifferentiated fever (WEST NILE FEVER). The virus appeared in North America for the first time in 1999. It is transmitted mainly by CULEX spp mosquitoes which feed primarily on birds, but it can also be carried by the Asian Tiger mosquito, AEDES albopictus, which feeds mainly on mammals.

A genus of HALOBACTERIACEAE distinguished from other genera in the family by the presence of specific derivatives of TGD-2 polar lipids. Haloarcula are found in neutral saline environments such as salt lakes, marine salterns, and saline soils.

A family of gram-negative, moderately halophilic bacteria in the order Oceanospirillales. Members of the family have been isolated from temperate and Antarctic saline lakes, solar salt facilities, saline soils, and marine environments.
