The arrival of SARS-CoV-2 in Brazil in March 2020 negatively impacted the economy, generated panic in the population and disrupted our country's public and private health systems. It is evident that there is a need for rapid diagnostic / prognostic methods and therapeutic alternatives to deal with this pandemic in our country. Thus, this multidisciplinary project, which involves researc...
Emerging viruses are agents associated with a new or a previous low-prevalent disease in a specific geographic region that significantly increased their incidence that area. Among the emerging viruses in Brazil is possible to highlight: Zika (ZIKV), Oropouche (OROV), Chikungunya (CHIKV), Mayaro (MAYV) and probably La Crosse (LACV), Iquitos virus (IQTV), Japanese Encephalitis (JEV), Sain...
Emerging viruses can cause great impacts on a susceptible population. A example of this are virus transmitted by arthropods which are widely spread in wild and urban areas, such as Oropouche Vírus (OROV). This is an emergent arbovirus that can be transmitted in urban environmental by the bite of Culicoides paraensis, a hematophagous fly that circulates in the North and Northeast of Braz...
The Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is an emerging arbovirus present in tropical and subtropical regions transmitted by the arthropod vector A. aegypti. Although CHIKV infection may be asymptomatic, it usually leads to the development of an acute febrile illness, joint pain and swelling. One of the major complications associated with CHIKV are chronic manifestations such as arthralgia and art...
The Oropouche Virus (OROV) is an arbovirus with potential to cause epidemics in the most populated regions of Brazil. Individuals infected with OROV develop a febrile illness, which can progress to neurological and hemorrhagic complications. Furthermore, an increased incidence of abortion was reported during major OROV epidemics. However, the teratogenic potential of OROV and the pathog...

Emerging viruses, mainly those transmitted by arthropods widely spread in urban areas, are a great concern for public health worldwide. Zika virus (ZIKV) is an emerging virus in Brazil often associated with fever-rash illness and some serious complications, such as a Guillain-Barré like syndrome and congenital malformations, including microcephaly. Oropouche virus (OROV) is another emer...
