What is Japanese Encephalitis

Japanese encephalitis (JE) is a mosquito borne viral disease that affects central nervous system, causing encephalitis in humans as well as in horses and abortion in pigs. This the most important cause of epidemic encephalitis and childhood mortality globally, with an estimated 35,000 to 50,000 cases and 10,000 deaths annually. It is enzootic in Asia and most commonly associated with rice growing fields in the rural areas where water lodging and irrigation system provides healthy environment for mosquito breeding.

How is the disease scenario in Kerala or India

The first epidemic of JE was reported in 1935 from Japan. Since than the infection is widespread throughout large parts of Asia and has become an emerging disease of public health significance in India. In India, the disease was clinically diagnosed for the first time in  the year 1955 from human cases of encephalitis from North Arcot district of Tamilnadu. In the year 1973, Burdwan and Bankura districts of West Bengal reported the first major outbreak involving more than 700 cases and 300 deaths. The disease is common in the northen India especially Uttar Pradesh, Assam and West Bengal. In Kerala, the disease is usually reported from backwaters around Allepey and Kottayam due to abundant rice/paddy fields, birds and mosquitoes.

What are the characteristic of this virus?

Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV belongs to the genus Flavivirus of family Flaviviuriade and is a small, enveloped virus with a single stranded, positive sense RNA. There are three structural proteins viz., nucleocapsid -C, membrane- M/PrM and envelope-E. The E protein appears to play a dominant role in the generation of neutralizing antibodies and the induction of a protective immune response ( Kimura-Kiroda and Yasui, 1988).

What is the role of mosquito in disease transmission

JE is a mosquito borne disease and mainly transmitted through the bite o Culex tritaeniorrynchus and Cx.vishnui group mosquitoes. In India, JEV has been isolated from 16 species of mosquitoes.

What is the role of pigs and birds in disease transmission?

Pigs acts as amplifying host of JE virus and  ardeid birds acts as its reservoirs. The virus is maintained in nature by complex cycle that involves pigs, birds and mosquito as vector. There are Pig- mosquito-pig and bird-mosquito-bird transmission cycles. Peak risk of JE infection is associated with presence of pig population. Since the viremia in pigs lasts two to four days, they can easily infect the mosquitoes.

What are the symptoms commonly observed in humans

Human are incidental hosts for JE virus but infection can lead to illness and death (Gubler, 2002). The most common symptoms seen in humans are fever, headache, nausea or at times vomiting and severe body pain. The incubation period lasts 4-14 days. If proper treatment is not given, the disease could turn fatal. Severe cases leads to stiffness of the neck, convulsions, confusion, disorientation, delirium, paresis, and paralysis.

How can this disease be controlled

The major control measures for JE is mosquito control through use of nets, spraying of pesticides etc, screening of JE virus in pig through sero surveillance coupled with segregation, slaughtering, and vaccination and practicing human vaccination in endemic areas. Disease prevention is practically possible only through combined efforts to control mosquito breeding, mass immunization, reducing man mosquito contact and public awareness. The cases are managed symptomatically and early diagnosis helps in reducing adverse sequelae.
