                GAYA: With less than 25% of the target achieved in the first nine days of the three-week campaign for 100 percent immunization against Japanese Encephalitis (JE), the deadly disease, that took an epidemic form in Gaya district in 2011, the campaign period is likely to be extended as the target of immunizing all the 22 lakh plus children in 1-15 age group in the districts of Gaya and Aurangabad has hit initial roadblocks.

                No less than 94 children, almost all of them belonging to the Mahadalit group, died due to encephalitis at ANMMCH, Gaya, alone and more than 200 others, who survived the disease, ended up with near permanent mental and physical disabilities.

                          Lucknow The month-long mop-up round for Japanese Encephalitis (JE) vaccine, which was slated to start from December 1 in JE-affected districts of the state, has been refused permission by the Government of India on technical grounds.
                          While the state government, claims that the campaign has been postponed, central government officials claim that after two rounds of special immunisation drive against the disease, there is no need of another “campaign”, but rather for strengthening the routine immunisation (RI) which already includes JE vaccination.
                          ...
                          Gearing up for the campaign, health officials of the state had already prepared the list of children between 16 and 24 months, as well as those up to 15 years, who were to be covered in the immunisation campaign. The mop-up round was to be held from December 1 to 31.

                          “A vaccination campaign is a technical decision. Uttar Pradesh already had two rounds of JE vaccination campaign in the years 2006 and 2010-11. After the campaigns, the vaccine is regularly being administered in the routine immunisation round for the new born babies. The need is to strengthen the routine immunisation of the state and improve the coverage rather than another round of vaccine campaign,” explained Dr Pradeep Haldar, Deputy Commissioner, Immunisation, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

                            A second Japanese encephalitis strain is circulating in India
                            Archita Bhatta

                            [NEW DELHI] Researchers in West Bengal have reported a second strain of the Japanese Encephalitis Virus (JEV) circulating in the eastern Indian state.

                            According to a study published online in Virology Journal, last month (15 November), the researchers confirmed genotype I (GI) of JEV coexisting with the predominant genotype III (GIII) strain in over a quarter of 135 patients hospitalised for acute encephalitis syndrome.

                            The GI strain was first detected in India three years ago in the Gorakhpur area of the northern state of Uttar Pradesh.

                            Led by Shyamalendu Chatterjee at the virus unit of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) in Kolkata, the researchers have now confirmed the GI strain in the samples of blood, and fluid from brain and spinal column, of patients admitted to government hospitals in eight West Bengal districts between July and December 2010.

                            Published: 15 November 2012

                            Abstract (provisional)
                            Background
                            Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV), a mosquito-borne zoonotic pathogen, is the sole etiologic agent of Japanese Encephalitis (JE); a neurotropic killer disease which is one of the major causes of viral encephalitis worldwide with prime public health concern. JE was first reported in the state of West Bengal, India in 1973. Since then it is being reported every year from different districts of the state, though the vaccination has already been done. Therefore, it indicates that there might be either partial coverage of the vaccine or the emergence of mutated/new strain of JEV. Considering this fact, to understand the JEV genotype distribution, we conducted a molecular epidemiological study on a total of 135 serum/cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples referred and/or collected from the clinically suspected patients with Acute encephalitis syndrome (AES), admitted in different district hospitals of West Bengal, India, 2010.

                            Findings

                            JEV etiology was confirmed in 36/135 (26.6%) and 13/61 (21.3%) 2--15 days' febrile illness samples from AES cases by analyzing Mac-ELISA followed by RT-PCR test respectively. Phylogenetic analysis based on complete envelope gene sequences of 13 isolates showed the emergence of JEV genotype I (GI), co-circulating with genotype III (GIII).

                            Conclusion
                            This study represents the first report of JEV GI with GIII, co-circulating in West Bengal. The efficacy of the vaccine (derived from JEV GIII strain SA-14-14-2) to protect against emerging JEV GI needs careful evaluation. In future, JE outbreak is quite likely in the state, if this vaccine fails to protect sufficiently against GI of JEV.
