Tittel

Capasity building on vector-borne infections, B 1710

Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag

Capasity- and network-building on vector-borne diseases in the Barents region is needed due to microclimatic changes that may influence the northern distribution of ticks and mosquitos. Norway and Russia have a common interest concerning distribution of vectors and pathogens. NIPH collaborates with 6  territories in Russia. Vector-borne pathogens; tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV), Inkoo virus (INKV) and other pathogens from ticks and mosquitoes, may cause fever, encephalitis and immunological conditions in humans and animals. These may be a threat to global biodiversity, eco-systems, wildlife, animal- and human health. The strong network and gained experiences from the previous project are beneficial. In times with difficult relationship between our countries it is important to maintain the good professional collaboration.

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

Capasity- and network-building on vector-borne diseases in the Barents region is needed due to microclimatic changes that may influence the northern distribution of ticks and mosquitos. Norway and Russia have a common interest concerning distribution of vectors and pathogens. Vector-borne pathogens; tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV), Inkoo virus (INKV) and other pathogens from ticks and mosquitoes, may cause fever, encephalitis and immunological conditions in humans and animals. These may be a threat to global biodiversity, eco-systems, wildlife, animal- and human health. Changes of genetic diversity might influence the severity of the diseases. 
We include regions endemic and non-endemic for tick- and mosquito-borne infections in Northwest Russia. The strong network and gained experiences from the previous project are beneficial. The federal and local infectious disease authorities in Russia are partners in the project supporting the existing network. The laboratory at PI and NIPH coordinates data collection from Russia and Norway, respectively. Routines for communication and management are established. In times with difficult relationship between our countries it is important to maintain the good professional collaboration.

Norway and Russia have a common interest in monitoring microclimatic effects on distribution of vectors and pathogens and in studying the genetic diversity that might influence the disease severity.
  
This project aims to provide knowledge on vector-borne pathogens related to diagnosis and climate and to shape policies, mitigation and control measures for zoonotic pathogens in a One-health perspective. The focus will be to analyse samples from patients suffering from encephalitis and fatigue syndrome (ME) with unknown origin. We will analyze ticks, mosquitos, human and animal samples for virus and bacteria that can cause fever, encephalitis or disturb the immune system. Animal samples will be included to verify the distribution of pathogens. We aim to understand how climatic changes may effect the distribution of vectors and pathogens. Another aim is to create a stronger network of infectious disease experts, health authorities and laboratory specialists. In times with difficult relationship between our countries it is important to maintain the good professional collaboration.The outcome will result in recommendations for vaccination and better diagnosis to benefit the general population and health-care specialists. The results will be distributed through seminars, conferences and joint publications of Norwegian and Russian specialists. 
PhDs and master students in Norway and Russia are involved.
