A Note on the Risk of Infections Invading Unaffected Regions
Amaku et al. - Computational and Mathematical Methods in Medicine, July 4, 2018
The authors present two probabilistic models to estimate the risk of introducing infectious diseases into previously unaffected countries/regions by infective travelers, looking at both direct transmission of infection and vector-borne infection.
NEURO-ZIKA: Neurological Manifestations of Zika
Defining the spectrum of neurological diseases associated with Zika virus (ZIKV) infection, in both the central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS) of adults and children.
WEAR: Wearable Aedes Repellent Technologies
To protect pregnant women, novel, wash-in detergent formulations and long-lasting plastic technologies containing repellents for the treatment of clothing and other wearable repellent technologies are being developed using new microencapsulation techniques.
Investigating Vaccines in Antibody Dependent Enhancement
Identifying the major T-cell epitopes and cross reactive B-cell epitopes on ZIKV and assessing the role of flavivirus antibodies in protective and pathogenic immunity following ZIKV through antibody dependent enhancement (ADE).
