Abstract

Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) is the most frequent cause of mosquito-borne encephalitis in Asian countries. Several culicine species are potential vectors. The primary JEV vectors feed mainly on cows (a dead-end host for JEV), pigs (an amplifying host), and, occasionally, humans (a dead-end...

Abstract

Based on statistical data from 22 prefectures in southwestern Japan, the relationships of the incidence of Japanese encephalitis (JE) to the density of swine farms and the area of paddy fields were analysed, especially in relation to cattle-breeding farms during the 1960s. Large epidemics of JE...

Abstract

During studies of arboviral epidemiology in Vietnam, 5 virus isolates were recovered from Culex tritaeniorhynchus mosquitoes. 3 of the 5 isolates were identified as strains of Japanese encephalitis virus, but the others, collected at Me Tri village, Hanoi, were shown to represent an alphavirus, for ...

Abstract

Determinations were made of the source of 16 330 bloodmeals from 10 species of Culex mosquitoes, including recognized vectors of Japanese encephalitis (JE) virus, in two epidemiologically distinct areas in southern India. In Madurai, where cases occurred sporadically and pigs were reared only in...

Abstract

A characteristic feature of the epidemiology of Japanese encephalitis (JE) is the occurrence of a large number of subclinical infections. The reporting of only overt cases underestimates the total level of virus transmission, a knowledge of which is essential for the evolution of control...

Abstract

The ecology of Japanese encephalitis (JE) in different agro-climatological areas of Sri Lanka was studied in 1987-88 in relation to the abundance of mosquito vectors (Culex tritaeniorhynchus, Cx. gelidus, Cx. fuscocephala, Cx. pseudovishnui, Cx. whitmorei and Mansonia uniformis), infection in...

Abstract

A prospective serologic study was undertaken in a community in Rangoon, Burma, in 1982 to quantify Japanese encephalitis (JE) virus infections in humans and in pigs. The prevalence, relative abundance and host preference of Culex mosquitoes in the area were also determined. JE virus infection was...

Abstract

A seroepidemiological study of Japanese encephalitis (JE) in Dimapur, Nagaland, India, was carried out following an outbreak of the disease between July 1985 and February 1986. Altogether 50 persons were affected, with 30 deaths. The attack and death rates per 1000 were higher in Nagas (0.55 and...

Abstract

At Kasetsart University experimental agricultural area, the breeding sites of Culex gelidus and C. fuscocephalus were found to be in waste water around pig pens and cattle shelters, while C. tritaeniorhynchus bred chiefly in roadside ditches, plantation sites and rice fields. Light trap catches...
