During deployment, the troops showed the highest seroconversion rates for sandfly fever
Characterization of a sandfly fever
Sicilian virus isolated during a sandfly fever
epidemic in Turkey.
We found that 2 phleboviruses belonging to the Sandfly fever
Naples virus species, TOSV and Punique virus, are cocirculating in northern Tunisia.
Serological studies on the epidemiology of sandfly fever
in the Old World.
L, large; M, medium; NS, nonstructural; N, nucleoprotein; TOSV, Toscana virus; NA, not applicable; RVFV, Rift Valley fever virus; SFSV, sandfly fever
Sicilian virus; SFNV, sandfly fever
Naples virus; PTV, Punta Toro virus.
Recent attention has been drawn to Toscana virus (family Bunyaviridae, genus Phlebovirus, species Sandfly fever
Naples virus') in countries surrounding the Mediterranean because the virus causes meningitis during summer.
Nicoletti L, Ciufolini MG, Verani R Sandfly fever
viruses in Italy.
A variety of primers targeting different genes were used: primers specific for TOSV in the polymerase gene (10) and primers designed in this study from the alignment of nucleoprotein sequences of selected phleboviruses (retrieved from GenBank) specific for the species Sandfly fever
Naples virus (SFNV-S1 [5'-CTTYTTRTCYTCYC TRGTGAAGAA-3'], SFNV-R1 [5'-ATGATGAAGAARA TGTCAGAGAA-3'], SFNV-S2 [5'-GCRGCCATRTTKG GYTTTTCAAA-3'], SFNV-R2 [5'-CCTGGCAGRGACA CYATCAC-3']).
7% identity at the nucleotide level with TOSV strains isolated in Italy, TOSV isolated in Spain, and sandfly fever
Naples virus (Sabin strain), respectively.
European human and animal pathogens in the genus Alphavirus include SINV, Ockelbo virus, and Chikungunya virus and in the family Bunyaviridae, sandfly fever
Naples virus (often referred to as Toscana virus), sandfly fever
Sicilian virus, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV), Inkoo virus, and Tahyna virus, which is widespread throughout Europe.
According the 8th report of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses, TOSV is a serotype of Sandfly fever
Naples virus within the genus Phlebovirus in the family Bunyaviridae.
In southern Europe, WNV infections (2-4), tickborne encephalitis (5), sandfly fever
Sicilian virus (SFSV), sandfly fever
Naples virus (SFNV), and Toscana virus (TOSV) infections have been reported in Mediterranean countries (6,7).
