Invasion of a murine in vitro blood-brain barrier co-culture model by dengue virus serotypes 1 to 4.

Arch Virol 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Pengiran Anak Puteri Rashidah Sa'adatul Bolkiah Institute of Health Sciences, Universiti Brunei Darussalam, Jalan Tungku Link, Gadong, BE1410, Brunei Darussalam.

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a physical barrier that restricts the passage of cells and molecules as well as pathogens into the central nervous system (CNS). Some viruses enter the CNS by disrupting the BBB, while others can reach the CNS without altering the integrity of the BBB. Even though dengue virus (DENV) is not a distinctive neurotropic virus, the virus is considered to be one of the leading causes of neurological manifestations. Read More

Origin and expansion of the mosquito Aedes aegypti in Madeira Island (Portugal).

Sci Rep 2019 Feb 19;9(1):2241. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Global Health and Tropical Medicine, Instituto de Higiene e Medicina Tropical, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Lisboa, Portugal.

Historically known as the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti invaded Madeira Island in 2005 and was the vector of the island's first dengue outbreak in 2012. We have studied genetic variation at 16 microsatellites and two mitochondrial DNA genes in temporal samples of Madeira Island, in order to assess the origin of the invasion and the population structure of this mosquito vector. Our results indicated at least two independent colonization events occurred on the island, both having a South American source population. Read More

Dengue virus transmission from live donor liver graft: Comments and clarifications.

Am J Transplant 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Solid Oran Transplant, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences & Research Centre, Amrita University, Kochi, Kerala, India.

We would certainly agree with the author that owing to the retrospective nature of the study, pre-transplant samples were not available for testing and therefore conclusive evidence of donor to recipient transmission is virtually impossible. Nevertheless, the plasma from the donor and the recipient was tested for dengue viral RNA and it was positive confirming the presence of viremia. Although the diagnostic test was not quantitative, the real-time PCR results for dengue diagnosis indicated a much higher viremia in the recipient compared to the donor. Read More

Higher levels of B-cell mutation in the early germinal centres of an inefficient secondary antibody response to a variant Influenza Haemagglutinin.

Immunology 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Biosciences, University of Exeter, Exeter, EX4 4QD, UK.

Designing improved vaccines against mutable viruses such as Dengue and Influenza would be helped by a better understanding of how the B-cell memory compartment responds to variant antigens. Towards this we have recently shown after secondary immunization of mice with a widely variant Dengue envelope protein, with only 63% amino-acid identity, that IgM+ memory B-cells with few mutations supported an efficient secondary germinal centre (GC) and serum response, superior to a primary response to the same protein. Here, further investigation of memory responses to variant proteins, using more closely related Influenza haemagglutinins (HA), that were 82% identical, produced a variant-induced boost response in the GC dominated by highly mutated B-cells that failed, not efficiently improving serum avidity even in the presence of extra adjuvant, and that was worse than a primary response.

Development of a standardized Sanger-based method for partial sequencing and genotyping dengue viruses.

J Clin Microbiol 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Centers for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, Division of Vector Borne Diseases, Dengue Branch, San Juan, PR

The global expansion of dengue viruses (DENV-1-4) has contributed to the divergence, transmission, and establishment of genetic lineages of epidemiological concern; however, tracking phylogenetic relationships of these virus is not always possible due to inability of standardized sequencing procedures in resource-limited public health laboratories Consequently, public genomic data banks contain inadequate representation of geographical regions and historical periods. In order to improve detection of DENV-1-4 lineages, we report the development of a serotype-specific Sanger-based method standardized to sequence DENV-1-4 directly from clinical samples using universal primers that detect most DENV genotypes. The resulting envelope protein coding sequences are analyzed for genotyping with phylogenetic methods. Read More

Feasibility of feeding Aedes aegypti mosquitoes on dengue virus-infected human volunteers for vector competence studies in Iquitos, Peru.

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2019 Feb 12;13(2):e0007116. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Department of Entomology and Nematology, University of California, Davis, Davis, California, United States of America.

Background: Transmission of dengue virus (DENV) from humans to mosquitoes represents a critical component of dengue epidemiology. Examinations of this process have generally been hampered by a lack of methods that adequately represent natural acquisition of DENV by mosquitoes from humans. In this study, we assessed artificial and natural blood feeding methods based on rates of DENV infection and dissemination within mosquitoes for use in a field-based epidemiological cohort study in Iquitos, Peru.

Front Cell Infect Microbiol 2019 28;9. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Institute of Virology and Immunology (IVI), Bern, Switzerland.

Several mosquito-borne Flaviviruses such as Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV), West Nile virus (WNV), Dengue Virus (DENV), and Zika virus (ZIKV) can cause severe clinical disease. Being zoonotic, Flaviviruses infect a wide variety of terrestrial vertebrates, which dependent of the virus-host interactions, can enhance ongoing epidemics and maintain the virus in the environment for prolonged periods. Targeted species can vary from amphibians, birds to various mammals, dependent on the virus. Read More

Establishment of a comprehensive and high throughput serological algorithm for Zika virus diagnostic testing.

Diagn Microbiol Infect Dis 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Zoonotic Diseases and Special Pathogens, National Microbiology Laboratory, Public Health Agency of Canada, Winnipeg, MB, Canada. Electronic address:

The previous serological algorithm for Zika virus (ZIKV) comprised screening by anti-ZIKV IgM capture ELISA (MAC-ELISA) for samples collected within 3 months postexposure or onset (MPEO). Samples positive by MAC-ELISA and samples collected beyond 3 MPEO were tested by the confirmatory plaque reduction neutralization test (PRNT), which proved laborious and time-consuming during the 2015 outbreak. Thus, we evaluated several ZIKV ELISAs to establish an anti-IgM and anti-IgG combination for use as a screening tool for all samples prior to PRNT confirmation. Read More

Acceptability of Aedes aegypti blood feeding on dengue virus-infected human volunteers for vector competence studies in Iquitos, Peru.

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2019 Feb 11;13(2):e0007090. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Global Health Systems and Development Department, Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, New Orleans, Louisiana, United States of America.

As part of a study to investigate drivers of dengue virus (DENV) transmission dynamics, this qualitative study explored whether DENV-infected residents of Iquitos, Peru, considered it acceptable (1) to participate in direct mosquito feeding experiments (lab-reared Aedes aegypti mosquitoes fed directly on human volunteers) and (2) to provide blood meals indirectly (Ae. aegypti fed on blood drawn from participants by venipuncture). Twelve focus group discussions (FGDs; 94 participants: 82 females and 12 males) were conducted in January 2014 to explore six themes: (1) concerns and preferences regarding direct mosquito feeds and blood draws, (2) comprehension of and misconceptions about study procedures, (3) motivating factors for participation, (4) acceptability of children's participation, (5) willingness to provide multiple samples over several days, and (6) preference for direct feedings in homes versus the study laboratory.

Hybridization Cascade Plus Strand-Displacement Isothermal Amplification of RNA Target with Secondary Structure Motifs and Its Application for Detecting Dengue and Zika Viruses.

Anal Chem 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Institute of Molecular Biosciences , Mahidol University , Nakhon Pathom , Thailand , 73170.

Biological RNA generally comprises secondary structure motifs which cause a problem for target RNA detection by isothermal amplification methods. The complexity of the secondary structures makes RNA targets inaccessible for probe hybridization, resulting in decreased sensitivity and selectivity. This is particularly important because the hybridization step of the isothermal amplification method requires a limited temperature range. Read More
