Immune responses to Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus and molecular characterization of viral isolates
(University of the Free State, 2014-02)
Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV) is a tick-borne virus belonging to the family Bunyaviridae, genus Nairovirus. The distribution of the virus correlates with that of the principal vector, ticks belonging to ...
The development of a method for the detection and estimation of CCHF virus RNA in tick species
(University of the Free State, 2000-05)
Crimean Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF), caused by a RNA virus, is a tick-borne viral zoonosis occurring in Europe, Asia and Africa. The fatality rate is ±30%. Rapid and accurate diagnosis is essential. The aim of this ...
Preparation of recombinant antigens for demonstrating antibody responses in patients with Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus infections
(University of the Free State, 2011-06)
Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a tick-borne viral zoonosis widely distributed in Africa, Asia, Russia and the Balkans. The causative agent, CCHF virus (CCHFV) has the propensity to cause nosocomial infections ...
Development of molecular and serological assays for diagnosis and surveillance of Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus
(University of the Free State, 2015-05)
Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV) an arthropod-borne virus associated with haemorrhagic disease in humans. The global distribution of CCHFV correlates with that of ticks from the Hyalomma genus. CCHFV infection ...
