Flaviviridae


Presentation

  • Insoluble functionalized copolymers were found to develop specific interactions with viruses through chemical groups present on their surfaces.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Data Sources and Contributions The description has been compiled from data in the ICTV Report presented by Wengler G, Bradley DW, Collett MS, Heinz FX, Schlesinger RW, Strauss JH.[web.archive.org]
  • The 3'- terminus has no poly (A) tract but the poly (A) tract is present in some strains of tick-born encephalitis complex of flaviviruses.[microbewiki.kenyon.edu]
Fatigue
  • These include the body temperature falling below 100 F along with severe abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, rapid breathing, bleeding gums, fatigue, restlessness and blood in vomit, he added.[theindependentbd.com]
Abdominal Pain
  • These include the body temperature falling below 100 F along with severe abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, rapid breathing, bleeding gums, fatigue, restlessness and blood in vomit, he added.[theindependentbd.com]
Nausea
  • Yellow fever appears with a sudden onset of fever, chills, headache, backache, nausea, and vomiting.[britannica.com]
Myalgia
  • Genera Genus Flavi Dengue Fever Virus 1-4 – fever, rash, arthralgia, myalgia West Nile Fever Virus - fever, rash, arthralgia, myalgia Yellow Fever Virus - fever, hemorrhage, jaundice St.[web.stanford.edu]
Headache
  • West Nile meningitis is characterized by fever, headache, a stiff neck and photophobia.[de.slideshare.net]
  • Yellow fever appears with a sudden onset of fever, chills, headache, backache, nausea, and vomiting.[britannica.com]
  • Symptoms typically begin three to 14 days after the infection, and may include a high fever, headache, vomiting, muscle and joint pains, and rashes. When a mosquito bites a person infected with a dengue virus, the virus enters the mosquito.[en.prothomalo.com]
  • "Now, dengue is diagnosed in patients who don’t develop early signs like high fever, headaches or rashes," he added.[theindependentbd.com]
Excitement
  • Drug discovery for HCV is currently particularly exciting, since inhibitors of the HCV serine protease and the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase have recently entered the late stages of clinical development.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Tremor
  • Patients with West Nile encephalitis have changes in consciousness, disorientation and/or focal neurological signs, which may include ataxia, incoordination, tremors, involuntary movements, and signs that resemble Parkinson’s disease (rigidity, postural[de.slideshare.net]

Workup

Toxocara Canis
  • These include Citrus jingmen-like virus, Soybean cyst nematode virus 5, Toxocara canis larva agent, Wuhan cricket virus and possibly Gentian Kobu-sho-associated virus.[en.wikipedia.org]

Treatment

  • No effective antiviral therapy is currently available for the treatment of flaviviruses or pestiviruses.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • Abstract Assays with the ability to detect multiple antibodies in parallel have a wide range of potential applications in epidemiologic research.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • . & Holmes, E.C. 2001: Evolution, epidemiology and dispersal of flaviviruses revealed by molecular phylogenies. Adv. Virus Res ., 57: 71–103. Kuno, G., Chang, G.[species.wikimedia.org]
  • Type of: arborvirus, arbovirus a large heterogeneous group of RNA viruses divisible into groups on the basis of the virions; they have been recovered from arthropods, bats, and rodents; most are borne by arthropods; they are linked by the epidemiologic[vocabulary.com]
  • Epidemiology Transmission V iruses in the Flavi genera are transmitted by arthropods, mainly mosquitoes and ticks. Flaviviruses that are transmitted by arthropods are known as Group B Arboviruses.[web.stanford.edu]

  • Otherwise the best ways to prevent infection with arboviruses are behavioral, such as using mosquito nets, bug repellent and protective clothing.[web.stanford.edu]
