West Nile Virus (WNV) TaqMan RT-PCR Detection Kits

West Nile Virus (WNV) belongs to the RNA virus family of Flaviviridae. It is known to spread primarily through arthropod vectors such as mosquitoes. The virus infects mainly birds but is also reported to infect humans as well as pets such as cats and dogs. In humans, the majority of the infections caused by WNV are asymptomatic. However, some individuals (the majority of the confirmed cases) could enter a second, febrile stage with flu-like symptoms – commonly known as West Nile Fever. In a more serious stage, the disease becomes neuroinvasive, causing meningitis or encephalitis. Such severe conditions could lead to mortality. As the symptoms of WNV are very similar to other common diseases but can be fatal at a severe stage, it is important to distinguish the virus early in the diagnosis, particularly at the molecular level.
