Chikungunya virus
Virus classification
Chikungunya virus
Chikungunya is a relatively rare form of viral fever caused by an alphavirus that is spread by mosquito bites from the Aedes
aegypti mosquito The name is derived from the Makonde word meaning "that which bends up" in reference to the stooped posture
developed as a result of the arthritic symptoms of the disease. The disease was first described by Marion Robinson and W.H.R.
Lumsden in 1955, following an outbreak on the Makonde Plateau, along the border between Tanganyika and Mozambique in 1952.
Chikungunya is closely related to O’nyong’nyong virus.
Chikungunya is not considered to be fatal. However, in 2005-2006, 200 deaths have been associated with chikungunya on island and a widespread outbreak in Southe and Andhra Pradesh); see below.

Histopathological examination revealed perivascular lymphocyticis no specific treatment for Chikungunya. The illness is usually self- limiting and will resolve with time. Symptomatic treatment is recommended after excluding other more dangerous diseases. Vaccine trials were carried out in 2000, but funding for the project was discontinued and there is no vaccine currently available. A serological test for Chikungunya is available from the University of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Possible role for chloroquine in the treatment of Chikungunya: There is an interesting dialogue, mostly in French, about the possible use of chloroquine in the treatment of the arthralgia associated with CHIK. 1. A paper published in South Africa in 1984 concerning 10 cases of CHIK showed some effect of CQ in treating the symptoms of arthritis. Brighton SW. Chloroquine phosphate treatment of chronic Chikungunya arthritis. An open pilot study. S Afr Med J 1984 Aug The abstract of the paper: "Over 12% of patients who contract Chikungunya virus infection develop chronic joint symptoms. These symptoms respond only partially to the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. An open pilot study on the efficacy of chloroquine phosphate was carried out and 10 patients completed 20 weeks of therapy. Both the Ritchie articular index and morning stiffness improved significantly. In the patient's assessment, 7 out of 10 considered their conditions to have improved. On the basis of the doctor's assessment, 5 of the 10 had improved. These results justify further controlled blind trials of chloroquine in chronic Medical Newsletter : Vasu Healthcare, Gujarat, India.

Treatment (of Chikungunya):
Supportive care with rest is indicated during the acute joint symptoms. Movement and mild exercise tend to improve stiffness and morning arthralgia, but heavy exercise may exacerbate rheumatic symptoms. In unresolved arthritis refractory to aspirin and nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, chloroquine phosphate (250 mg/day) has given promising results." From the French government (in French):
Rough translation: "In the context of the search for molecules with activity against the Chikungunya virus, lab tests on cell cultures in vitro have shown that chloroquine (NivaquineR) has some antiviral activity against this virus. The French Agency of Health and Medicines Safety (AFSSAPS) points out that this involves preliminary tests and that at this stage, no information on the efficacy or safety in humans is available. In this context, the Agency reiterates the conditions of proper usage of Nivaquine (CQ ). Nivaquine/ CQ is indicated primarily for the prevention and treatment of malaria. It is also used in the symptoms of rheumatoid polyarthritis and of lupus. The use of this medication requires a prescription". (The rest of the statement reminds users of the hazards of over dosage with Following a recent outbreak (2006) of the disease in Southern India, several homeopathy practitioners in the region have been handing out medicine that is supposed to prevent the disease. However, there have been no scientific studies to confirm the effectiveness of homeopathy against Chikungunya. Medical Newsletter : Vasu Healthcare, Gujarat, India.

In 2006, there was a big outbreak in the Andhra Pradesh state in India. The initial cases were reported from Hyderabad and Secunderabad as well as from Anantpur district as early as November and December 2005 and is continue unabated. In Hyderabad alone an average practioner sees any where between 10 to 20 cases every day. Some deaths have been reported but it was thought to be due mainly to the inappropriate use of antibiotics and anti inflammatory tablets. The major cause of morbidity is due to severe dehydration, electrolyte imbalance and loss of glycemic control. Recovery is the rule except for about 3 to 5% incidence of prolonged arthritis. As this virus can cause thrombocytopenia, injudicious use of these drugs can cause erosions in the gastric epithelium leading to exsanguinating upper GI bleed (due to thrombocytopenia). Also the use of steroids for the control of joint pains and inflammation is dangerous and completely unwarranted. On average there are around 5,300 cases being treated everyday. This figure is only from public sector. The figures from the private sector combined would be much higher. There have been reports of large scale outbreak of this virus in Southern India. At least 80,000 people in Gulbarga, Tumkur, Bidar, Raichur, Bellary, Chitradurga, Davanagere, Kolar and Bijapur districts in Karnataka state are known to have been affected since A separate outbreak of Chikungunya fever was reported from Malegaon town in Nasik district, Maharashtra state, in the first two weeks of March 2006, resulting in over 2000 cases. In Orissa state, amost 5000 cases of fever with muscle aches and headache were reported between February 27 and March 5, 2006 In Bangalore, the state capital of Karnataka (India), there seems to be an outbreak of CHIK now (May 2006) with arthralgia / arthritis and rashes. So also in the neighboring state of Andhra Pradesh. In the 3rd week of May 2006 the outbreak of Chikungunya in North Karnataka was severe.
