This first published edition of the Catalogue provides concise and standardized information on viruses provisionally classified as arboviruses. The published version is a facsimile of the February version of the current working catalogue, which is constantly up-dated but has a limited distribution. Viruses eligible for registration in the catalogue are vertebrate viruses, published and Cited by: 5. INTRODUCTION. Arthropod-borne encephalitis viruses represent a significant public health problem throughout most of the world. These viruses, which belong to the families Flaviviridae, Togaviridae, Bunyaviridae, and Reoviridae, are usually highly adapted to particular reservoir hosts and are spread from animal to animal via the bite of an infected arthropod, usually a specific mosquito or tick. Responsibility edited by N. Karabatsos. Edition 3rd ed. Imprint San Antonio, Tex.: Published for the subcommittee on Information Exchange of the American Committee on Arthropod-borne Viruses by the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, Arthropod-Borne Viruses. Arthopod-borne viruses (Arboviruses) are viruses which could be transmitted to man via an insect (arthropod) vector. In most instances, the virus is maintained in nature between the vector and an animal host. Man gets infected incidentally but is a dead end of infection.

Arbovirus is an informal name used to refer to any viruses that are transmitted by arthropod word arbovirus is an acronym (arthropod-borne virus). The word tibovirus (tick-borne virus) is sometimes used to more specifically describe viruses transmitted by ticks, a superorder within the arthropods. Arboviruses can affect both animals (including humans) and lty: Infectious disease. Arboviruses and rodent-borne viruses are ­classified among the Arenaviridae, Bunyaviridae, Flaviviridae, ­Reoviridae, and Togaviridae families. The African hemorrhagic fever viruses are classified in the Filoviridae family (Table , Figure ).A number of the diseases described here are considered emerging infectious diseases (see Chapter 29).

arbovirus [ahr´bo-vi″rus] a term used by epidemiologists to refer to any of numerous viruses that replicate in blood-feeding arthropods such as mosquitoes and ticks and are transmitted to humans by biting. adj., adj arbovi´ral. arbovirus (ar'bō-vī'rŭs), A name for a large, heterogeneous group of RNA viruses. There are more than species. Some arthropod-borne diseases are endemic to a particular country or locality, while others, such as malaria, are widely spread throughout the world. Arthropod-borne diseases can be dispersed when infected individuals travel from a locality where they contracted the disease to an area where the disease is absent or less common. 1.

The Subcommittee on Information Exchange of The American Committee on Arthropod-Borne Viruses. Many other zoonotic viruses are transmitted to humans by hematophagous insects (mosquitoes, sandflies, biting midges and ticks) and are designated arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses) (Higgs and Beaty, ). In recent years, the prevalence of vector-borne diseases has expanded considerably, due to intensification of human travel and Cited by:
