Molecular characterization of autochthonous chikungunya cluster in latium region, Italy

Research output: Contribution to journalLetter

Abstract

We report partial molecular characterization of isolates from an autochthonous chikungunya virus cluster in the Latium Region of Italy. E1 sequences from 3 patients differ substantially from sequences from the 2007 outbreak in Italy and lack the A226V substitution associated with increased viral fitness in the Aedes albopictus mosquito vector.
