The Monkeypox virus belongs to the Orthopoxviral genus, as does the specifically human smallpox virus. It is zoonotic and had never previously been considered as capable of human-to-human transmission over more than nine viral generation cycles. While relevant animal reservoirs have yet to be identified, non-human primates (NHP) are only accidental hosts. Read More

Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, 7703 Floyd Curl Drive, San Antonio, TX 78229, USA.

Monkeypox virus (MPXV) is closely related to the infamous variola (smallpox) virus, causing a febrile rash illness in humans similar to but milder than smallpox. In the 20 century, human monkeypox had been mostly a rare zoonotic disease confined to forested areas in West and Central Africa. However, the case number and geographic range have increased significantly in this century, coincided with the waning of the smallpox vaccine-induced immunity in the global population. Read More

Monkeypox is an emerging and neglected zoonotic disease whose number of reported cases has been gradually increasing in Central Africa since 1980. This disease is caused by the monkeypox virus (MPXV), which belongs to the genus Orthopoxvirus in the family Poxviridae. Obtaining molecular data is particularly useful for establishing the relationships between the viral strains involved in outbreaks in countries affected by this disease. Read More

Genomics and Bioinformatics Unit, Department of Infectious Diseases, National Institute of Health Doutor Ricardo Jorge (INSA), Lisbon, Portugal.

The largest monkeypox virus (MPXV) outbreak described so far in non-endemic countries was identified in May 2022. Here, shotgun metagenomics allowed the rapid reconstruction and phylogenomic characterization of the first MPXV outbreak genome sequences, showing that this MPXV belongs to clade 3 and that the outbreak most likely has a single origin. Although 2022 MPXV (lineage B. Read More

Public Health & Tropical Medicine, College of Public Health, Medical and Veterinary Sciences, James Cook University, Townsville, QLD 4811, Australia.

Several neglected infectious pathogens, such as the monkeypox virus (MPXV), have re-emerged in the last few decades, becoming a global health burden. Despite the incipient vaccine against MPXV infection, the global incidence of travel-related outbreaks continues to rise. About 472 confirmed cases have been reported in 27 countries as of 31 May 2022, the largest recorded number of cases outside Africa since the disease was discovered in the early 1970s. Read More

Background: Human monkeypox (MPX) is a neglected zoonotic disease caused by the MPX virus a double-stranded DNA virus which belongs to the Poxviridae family genus Orthopoxvirus. It is endemic in the rural rainforests of Central and Western Africa where it is responsible of human sporadic cases and outbreaks since 1970. Outside Africa MPXV caused an outbreak in 2003 in the United States linked to importation of infected rodents from Ghana and a few travel-related cases in the USA, United Kingdom, Israel and Singapore.

Monkeypox that started spreading from central and western Africa has recently been detected in various countries including Spain, Canada, Australia, and UAE. Though it has a very low incidence rate, it is still a significant threat that must be dealt with as quickly as possible and the probability of it spreading to many other countries is still very high. It is caused the by Monkeypox virus that belongs to the genus Orthopox that also include smallpox virus, which has quite similar clinical presentation as that of Monkeypox. Read More
