Abstract

The arboviruses described to the Flaviviridae and Togaviridae families cause serious public health problems in tropical and subtropical countries. These arboviruses usually under diagnosed, involving clinical manifestations ranging from asymptomatic infection, acute febrile disease viral hemorrhagic fever and encephalitis. Due to the high number of asymptomatic infections and high viremia produced by Alphavirus and Flavivirus, blood donors could transmit these viruses by blood transfusion. Considering the recent introduction of Chikungunya (CHIKV) in Brazil, and the imminent introduction of West Nile virus (WNV), coupled with environmental factors such as climate and especially the urban high infestation by Aedes mosquitos, can be responsible for a large spread of these viruses the country. So CHIKV can cause serious epidemics, reproducing what is happening with the Dengue virus, transmitted by the same vector, which represents a serious risk to the safety of blood products. This study aims to detect Alphavirus and Flavivirus in blood bank samples using RT-PCR in real-time SYBR Green. In summary, this study will be important in transfusion service and also collaborate to improve the quality of blood products offered in Brazil. (AU)
