Emerging issues on arboviral diseases: Zika, Dengue, Chikungunya

Call for Papers in Annals of Clinical Microbiology and Antimicrobials.


In the context of emergence of Zika and chikungunya in new regions of the World, such as Latin America, multiple new issues have raised the attention of the globe, including the concern as an international public health emergency related to microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome increase linked to Zika. Even more, due to globalization and migration, this arboviral diseases have emerged as global public health problems now seen in regions such as Europe and North America, where people, even asymptomatic, from different countries of Africa, Latin America and Asia, are carriers of the infection. For these reasons, in endemic and non-endemic regions is important to keep in mind and to know about the clinical and epidemiological aspects, as well diagnostic and therapeutic implications of these arboviral diseases in different contexts.

We invite authors to submit original research and review articles that focus on or illuminate aspects of the epidemiology, clinical, diagnostics, therapeutics and prevention of Zika, Dengue, Chikungunya and other arboviral diseases. We are particularly interested in topics that, further from theoretical/basic science value, have a potential epidemiological and clinical utility. The proposed topics should focus on aspects of diseases such as, but not limited to, infections in pregnancy, congenital syndromes, Guillain-Barré syndrome, chronic complications, neurological issues, mathematical modelling, vaccines.
