Lassa Fever: a Summary for Clinicians


On this episode of Transmission Interrupted, we welcome Dr. Jared Evans, Dr. Aneesh Mehta, and Dr. Vanessa Rabbe—members of NETEC’s Special Pathogen Research Network—to discuss their recent manuscript entitled, “Lassa Virus Infection: a Summary for Clinicians.” Developed from a clinical perspective, this manuscript provides clinicians with a condensed, accessible understanding of the current literature on Lassa virus (LASV) infection and Lassa fever disease (LF). The topics discussed in this episode will provide basic information on Lassa virus and Lassa fever, and will highlight pathogenesis, clinical features, and medical countermeasures that have demonstrated potential value for use in clinical or research environments.
