Source Document :
Denguematters Newsletter. 2011 ( 7 ) (Journal)
Abstract :
This issue will focus on the epidemiology of dengue in children, current surveillance systems and national efforts to stop mosquitoes from spreading. The introduction of a vaccine will be essential to control the spread of infection that can have devastating consequences in both children and adults.

Abstract :
Dengue is the most important arboviral infection of humans. Thrombocytopenia is frequently observed in the course of infection and haemorrhage may occur in severe disease. The degree of thrombocytopenia correlates with the severity of infection, and may contribute to the risk of haemorrhage. As a re . . .

Abstract :
Four serotypes of dengue virus (DENV 1-4) currently circulate between humans and domestic/ peridomestic Aedes mosquitoes, resulting in 100 million infections per year. All four serotypes emerged, independently, from sylvatic progenitors transmitted among non-human primates by arboreal Aedes mosquito . . .
