War Epidemics: An Historical Geography of Infectious Diseases in Military Conflict and Civil Strife, 1850-2000 (Oxford Geographical and Environmental Studies)

Down the a long time, conflict epidemics have decimated the combating power of armies, brought on the suspension and cancellation of army operations, and feature introduced havoc to the civil populations of belligerent and non-belligerent states alike. This booklet examines the old prevalence and geographical unfold of infectious illnesses in organization with previous wars.


This quantity is THE definitive, thoroughly up to date, reference paintings for ALL researchers and clinicians operating in autoimmunity. updated: this can be a well timed severe assessment of greater than a hundred autoantibodies by means of major specialists of their respective fields, and comprises many fresh references. foreign specialists: The one hundred twenty Chapters were written via the head overseas cadre of authors who've supplied dependent, specialist contributions.

Ranaviruses: Lethal Pathogens of Ectothermic Vertebrates

This can be the 1st e-book on ranaviruses. Ranaviruses are double-stranded DNA viruses that reason hemorrhagic disorder in amphibians, reptiles, and fish. they've got prompted mass die-offs of ectothermic vertebrates in wild and captive populations world wide. there's proof that this pathogen is rising and chargeable for inhabitants declines in yes destinations.

2003). This suggests that this species may act as a bridge vector for exchange between forest and peridomestic habitats. Furthermore, the ability of Ae. aegypti and Ae. , 2007b), suggests that the transfer between forest and human habitats could occur regularly. B. The influence of natural immunity or vaccination on potential sylvatic DENV emergence As described in previous sections (see DENV evolutionary relationships—origin and emergence) the four DENV serotypes have evolved from a common ancestral progenitor resulting in viruses sharing several common antigenic sites.

Although the mechanism of maintenance of DENV during the dry season or during interepidemic periods has not been clearly elucidated, evidence suggests DENV maintenance by vertical (transovarial) transmission. , 1931). , 1972), and TOT of LaCrosse virus by Ae. , 1973). The first evidence of DENV transovarial transmission (TOT) in nature was 28 Nikos Vasilakis and Scott C. Weaver demonstrated by the isolation of DENV-2 (presumably sylvatic strains) from a pool of male Ae. , 1983) and a year later in an Ae.

2002a,b). DENV phylogenetic analyses have also revealed a complex pattern of evolution within multiple lineages that is partly fueled by the extensive History and Evolution of Human Dengue Emergence 33 travel movement of humans and mosquitoes (especially in the days of sailing ships). , 2005). , 2002); and (3) fitness for transmission which may differ among DENV genotypes, as is evidenced by the greater susceptibility of Ae. aegypti for the invading Asian genotypes than for the American genotype it has displaced in some locations (Armstrong and Rico-Hesse, 2003).
