Underlying data for 'Rapid molecular assays for the detection of the four dengue viruses in infected mosquitoes'

Joanne Macdonald, Madeeha Ahmed, Nina Pollak, Andrew Van Den Hurk, Leon Hugo & Jody Hobson-Peters
The pantropic emergence of severe dengue disease can partly be attributed to the co-circulation of different dengue viruses (DENVs) in the same geographical location. Effective monitoring for circulation of each of the four DENVs is critical to inform disease mitigation strategies. In low resource settings, this can be effectively achieved by utilizing inexpensive, rapid, sensitive and specific assays to detect viruses in mosquito populations. In this study, we developed four rapid DENV tests with direct...

Predicting spatio-temporal population patterns of Borrelia burgdorferi, the Lyme disease pathogen

Tam Tran, Melissa A. Prusinski, Jennifer L. White, Richard C. Falco, John Kokas, Vanessa Vinci, Wayne K. Gall, Keith J. Tober, Jamie Haight, JoAnne Oliver, Lee Ann Sporn, Lisa Meehan, Elyse Banker, P. Bryon Backenson, Shane T. Jensen & Dustin Brisson
The causative bacterium of Lyme disease, Borrelia burgdorferi, expanded from an undetected human pathogen into the etiologic agent of the most common vector-borne disease in the United States over the last several decades. Systematic field collections of the tick vector reveal increases in the geographic range and population size of B. burgdorferi that coincided with increases in human Lyme disease incidence across New York State. Here we investigate the impact of environmental features on the...

Effect of ambient PM2.5 on healthcare utilisation for acute respiratory illness, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 2014-2019

Christopher R. Bailie, Jo Kay C. Ghosh, Martyn D. Kirk & Sheena G. Sullivan
Ambient particulate matter (PM2.5) is an important component of natural and human-generated air pollution and a major contributor to the global burden of disease. Short-term effects of PM2.5 exposure on respiratory illness have been described but most evidence arises from high pollution settings. We used case-crossover methods to estimate effects of outdoor PM2.5 levels on emergency department (ED) presentations and hospital admissions for a range of acute respiratory illnesses and age groups in Melbourne, Australia...
