ABSTRACT
This article offers advice on preventing dengue fever. Dengue is a virus transmitted by the daytime-feeding Aedes aegypti mosquito. It is very widespread across Southeast Asia, much of Africa, Central America and the northern parts of South America. There are four types of dengue and all are appearing similar to those infected. About one week after infection, fever may appear, subside and reappear again. There is no vaccine available, nor specific treatment for dengue fever and supportive measures are the only answer for dengue hemorrhagic fever.

    Introduction: Dengue is common acute febrile illness caused by infection with dengue virus. This illness occurs all around the world, with a higher incident in countries of the tropical areas. It is estimated that 40 % of the world population lives in risk areas and that 50-100 million cases...

    Background: Competitive displacement of a weakly virulent pathogen strain by a more virulent strain is one route to disease emergence. However the mechanisms by which pathogens compete for access to hosts are poorly understood. Among vector-borne pathogens, variation in the ability to infect...

T. // PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases;Nov2012, Vol. 6 Issue 11, p1 

    Isolations of sylvatic dengue-2 virus from mosquitoes, humans and non-human primates in Senegal show synchronized multi-annual dynamics over the past 50 years. Host demography has been shown to directly affect the period between epidemics in other pathogen systems, therefore, one might expect...

    Dengue in Cambodia is mainly transmitted by Aedes aegypti (L.) mosquitoes that primarily breed in large, concrete jars (≥200 liters) used for the storage of water for domestic use. Following a preliminary risk assessment, long-lasting insecticidal netting (LN) treated with deltamethrin was...
