Tackling the dengue, Zika and Chikungunya viruses
Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) infections are characterised by severe joint pain and fever during the acute phase and long-lasting debilitating arthralgia during the chronic phase. Aedes mosquitoes, the vectors transmitting CHIKV have undergone a dramatic expansion, causing CHIKV to become a global threat leading to long-term economic impacts in endemic countries. No effective vaccine is widely available to prevent any of these three arboviral diseases, and the group under the direction of Prof. Arturo Reyes-Sandoval is currently leading a vaccine programme at the Jenner Institute to tackle these infectious diseases.
