CRORA REPORT

 Pasteur Institute and ORSTOM are associated to collect data and to create this report using HTLM language.

This report involves all the data collected by Pasteur Insitute and ORSTOM, since 1962, more than 6,000 isolated strains of 188 arboviruses or mixed arboviruses.

For each virus identified by the CRORA, all the observed hosts or vectors are given, with the number of collected strains in each country, viral properties of collected strains, and bibliographical references concerning them.
For each host, or vector, the number of collected strains of each virus in all the countries is given. A special listing is given for the viruses isolated from male mosquitoes.
For each country, especially Burkina-Faso, Central African Republic, Ivory Coast, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritania and Senegal, the list of all the isolated viruses is given, with a special mention for the most recent strains.
For all the isolated and identified strains, listing give the exact place (latitude and longitude), date of collect and the host (or vector). In this listing, stains are connected with their bibliographical data.
For all the viruses, hosts or vectors, and countries, HTLM anchors give the opportunity to have an immediat access to the concerned subject.
For all the 204 reference strains used by the CRORA, general bibliographical datas are given (actually more than 3,000 references).
For all the bibliographical references, when the summary is known, an HTML anchor, Résumé, gives the opportunity to read it immediatly.

More than 6,000 viruses identification required more than 6,000,000 mosquitoes identified, more than 150,000 ticks, more than 600,000 sand flies, more than10,000 vertebrates and more than 5,000 humans to be sampled.

It means also 2,005 indirect immuno fluorescence, 1,046 fluorescences using monoclonal antibodies, 1,881 neutralizations tests (using suckling mice or continuous cells lines) and 4,298 complement fixation tests.

Twice a year, all these files will be completed with the last virological data from the CRORA or bibliographical ones
