Viral fevers on the rise! 9.9.2019
Dengue, influenza and chikungunya are serious viral infections that are usually accompanied by severe symptoms. And since the symptoms of all three are so similar, it can be quite difficult, if not impossible, to make a conclusive identification without laboratory testing, says Dr J. Anish Anand, consultant internal medicine, Apollo Hospitals. With scores of patients in the city suffering from dengue, influenza and chikungunya, timely intervention, lab tests and treatment are a must to tackle this viral epidemic. DENGUE Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral infection causing a severe flu-like illness, sometimes leading to severe complications. The dengue virus (DEN) comprises four distinct serotypes (DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3 and DEN-4) which belong to the genus Flavivirus, family Flaviviridae.

Delhi CM launches dengue, chikungunya prevention campaign 1.9.2019
New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday kickstarted his government's 10-week mass awareness campaign against dengue and chikungunya by inspecting his residence for stagnant water, which can spread such mosquito-borne diseases. Under the "10 hafte, 10 baje 10 minute campaign" ((10 weeks-10o'clock-10 minutes), the chief minister inspected his home for any possible sources of stagnant clean water, which can lead to the breeding of Aedes mosquitoes that spread vector-borne diseases, the Chief Minister Office (CMO) said. Kejriwal appealed to all ministers, MLAs and the public to begin the mega-campaign from their own homes and spend 10 minutes every Sunday to make sure there is no stagnant water in their homes and surroundings.

Kochi: High tech tools to help rapid diagnostics of diseases 28.7.2019
KOCHI: At a time when outbreaks of chikungunya, dengue and nipah diseases threaten the population in a big way, experts say that the absence of rapid diagnostic tests to identify the strain at molecular level is hampering specific treatment for the diseases early on so as to lessen the pain and save lives. "Generally symptomatic treatment is given to viral diseases at the first level. The major constraint of this treatment is that the doctor will not be able to identify the viral load in the blood sample of the patient. Based on the current developments in molecular biology, all the advanced countries have developed molecular labs for detecting the virus at the early phase using PCR (polymerised chain reaction) Technology. It is a paradox that Kerala does not have such a diagnostic facility for detecting viral strain using molecular tools," says Dr C. Mohan Kumar, Director, SCMS Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology Research & Development (SIBBR&D), Kochi. With the objective to ...
