Transcript of "Dengue virus "

  1. 1. By NAJIB ULLAH KHAN MPhil Institute of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering KPK Agricultural University Peshawar, Pakistan. 2011
  2. 2. <ul><li>The learning objectives of this presentation are to: </li></ul><ul><li>Understand what is Dengue Fever, Dengue Hemorrhagic fever and Dengue Shock Syndrome </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the modes of transmission and how to prevent exposure </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the geographic importance of the disease </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the importance of dengue from a public health point of view </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Is an acute fever producing infectious disease </li></ul><ul><li>Mostly found in the tropics </li></ul><ul><li>Complications can be fatal </li></ul><ul><li>It is also known as Dengue fever , break bone fever or Dengue hemorrhagic fever </li></ul><ul><li>Bauman, R., (2006). Microbiology disease by systems. San Francisco , CA: Pearson Benjamin Cumming Publishers </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Dengue is cause by a RNA virus </li></ul><ul><li>This virus is a member of the viral family Flaviviridae. </li></ul><ul><li>Genome contains 11000 nucleotide bases </li></ul><ul><li>Having 4 serotypes DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3 and DENV-4. </li></ul><ul><li>Transmitted by aedes mosquitoes </li></ul><ul><li>Dengue virus </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>A mosquito is the biological vector </li></ul><ul><li>This mosquito is the obligate intermediate host for some viruses </li></ul><ul><li>Aedes albopictus/aegypti are generally associated with the spread of dengue fever </li></ul><ul><li>Biting around the ankles and knees close to the ground in the daytime. </li></ul><ul><li>Only female mosquitoes will bite; mostly in the daytime </li></ul><ul><li>Akram, W., (n.d.). Aedes as a vector of Dengue: a possible threat to our lives. Khwarzimig Science Society. University of Agriculture, Faisalabad. Retrieved April 19, 2010 from http://www.khwarzimic.org/takveen/dengue_kss.pdf </li></ul>
  6. 6. Characteristics of the Aedes Mosquito <ul><li>One distinct physical feature – black and white stripes on its body and legs. </li></ul><ul><li>Bites during the day. </li></ul><ul><li>Lays its eggs in clean, stagnant water </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>1 </li></ul>How Do Aedes Mosquitoes Transmit Diseases... Mosquito bites and sucks blood containing the virus from an infected person. Virus is carried in its body. And passes the virus to healthy people when it bites them.
  8. 9. <ul><li>Dengue disease occurs in tropical and subtropical areas </li></ul><ul><li>Endemic in over 100 countries in the Caribbean, South, Central and North America, Africa, the Pacific Islands, Hawaii, Asia, Eastern Mediterranean and Australia </li></ul><ul><li>Before 1970 only nine countries had experience dengue hemorrhagic fever epidemics, a number that had increased more than four-fold by 1995 </li></ul><ul><li>World Health Organization, (2009).

  9. 10. <ul><li>Dengue cases usually increase during the rainy season </li></ul><ul><li>The spread of the mosquito is attributed to poor environmental sanitation </li></ul><ul><li>When it rains the water gets stored in any place such as discarded tires, broken bottles, and even in shoes </li></ul><ul><li>Other examples are soda cans, birdbaths, rain gutters, toys, pool covers, tree stumps, and garbage cans. </li></ul><ul><li>Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, (2007).
