GENERAL INFORMATION

 

WHAT IS ASIA PACIFIC CONFERENCE OF EMERGING VIRAL INFECTIONS...

Sri Lanka and the rest of the Asia Pacific region has been severely affected with dengue and other flavi-viruses. We are currently experiencing the largest dengue epidemic ever. In addition, many countries in our region are experiencing outbreaks of encephalitis and other neurological diseases due to flavi and other emerging viruses. Unfortunately, even after intense public health programs to control the vector, there does not appear to be a reduction in the burden of these infections. Therefore, it is crucial that we join hands to discuss how we can try to reduce the burden and complications due to these emerging viruses. This conference will hopefully set the platform to strengthen the existing collaborative efforts and to develop new opportunities to take things forward.




TOPICS

  • Dynamics of dengue viruses causing major outbreaks in Malaysia
  • WNV encephalitis
  • Virus detection capabilities
  • Common and contrasting features of emerging henipa viruses
  • Current scenario of dengue infection and therapeutics in India
  • Stem cells and asymptomatic flavi virus infections
  • Applications and implications of dengue rapid diagnostic tests
  • Impact of genome plasticity on antigenicity and virulence of enterovirus A71
  • Anti-dengue strategies targeting NS1
  • Dynamic Changes of Dengue Virus Serotype 2 through Epidemic Waves with Increasing Epidemic Potential and Clinical Severity in Taiwan
  • GBS and flavi viruses
  • Delineating the viral pathogenic mechanism with imaging flow cytometry and Duolink
  • CYD-TDV : the world's first dengue vaccine
  • Burden of dengue and other viruses in febrile infections in Sri Lanka
  • Dengue in pregnancy
  • Burden of dengue and vector borne infections in Sri Lanka
  • Phylogenic analysis of DENV strains in Sri Lanka
