Artemis One Health
Viruses residing in ARTHROPODS
It is estimated that more than one billion people living in the world’s poorest countries suffer from at least one neglected tropical disease, which can cause significant emotional distress, morbidity and mortality. The diseases caused by the so-called neglected pathogens further exacerbate poverty, thereby keeping the poor in a vicious circle. Besides zoonotic viruses also arboviruses form a significant part of these neglected pathogens, although not generally recognized as such. Artemis aims to work closely with the donor community to ensure that support for research will adequately meet the research needs to control neglected viral diseases.
- Yellow fever
The following viruses are being studied currently, embedded in several projects.
Yellow fever virus has the potential to cause big (urban) epidemics as exemplified by the situation before 1950s. However, the majority of the reported outbreaks to date are mainly seen in Africa and South America and have a forest (sylvatic) origin… > LEARN MORE
Arbovirus outbreaks are widespread, unexplained and unpredictable. This makes current surveillance approaches focusing on Arbovirusesindividual diseases and exotic vector populations inadequate, financially unsustainable, and unsatisfying for decision making by public health officials in early stages of emergence… > LEARN MORE
Dengue virus (DENV) infection is a huge and growing problem in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. Approximately 390 million people are infected annually worldwide with DENV, which may develop into severe disease, characterized by shock and multi-organ failure (MOF), especially in children… > LEARN MORE
Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is transmitted to people by mosquitoes, the same mosquitoes that transmit dengue and Zika. Historically distributed across tropical Africa and Southeast Asia, CHIKV has in recent years expanded its geographical range across the Indian Ocean and lately across South America and the Caribbean… > LEARN MORE
Ticks are able to transmit a wide range of diseases to both humans and animals, including Lyme’s disease and tick-borne encephalitis (TBE). TBE, a disease caused by the tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV), is often associated with neurological symptoms in humans… > LEARN MORE
