    Abstract : Background Climate change, global travel and trade have facilitated the spread of Aedes mosquitoes and have consequently enabled the diseases they transmit (dengue fever, Chikungunya, Zika and yellow fever) to emerge and re-emerge in uninfected areas. Large dengue outbreaks occurred in Athens in 1927 and in Portuguese island, Madeira in 2012, but there are almost no recent reports of Aedes aegypti, the principal vector, in Europe. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization of dengue virus isolates from patients experiencing dengue fever, dengue hemorrhagic fever, and dengue shock syndrome

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Abstract : The four serotypes of dengue virus (DENV) belong to the genus flavivirus, and have a positive sense, single-stranded RNA genome of ~11 kb. The DENVs cause the most common arthropod-borne viral disease in man with ~100 million infections per year. The sole measure of control is limiting the mosquito vectors Aedes aegypti and Ae.
