Anti-EEEV Drug Discovery Products

Eastern Equine Encephalitis Virus (EEEV) is a potentially deadly virus that belongs to the family Flaviviridae. It is transmitted by infected mosquitoes, primarily Culiseta melanura, and can cause severe neurological disease in humans and horses. EEEV is found in the eastern United States. Symptoms of EEEV infection in humans and horses can include high fever, chills, headache, lethargy, disorientation, and convulsions. In severe cases, EEEV infection can lead to encephalitis and even death. No vaccines or antiviral treatments are available for EEEV infection, and prevention is primarily focused on reducing exposure to infected mosquitoes.

The virus genome is a positive-sense, single-stranded RNA molecule. It encodes several functional proteins including structural proteins (capsid protein, E1, E2, E3, and 6k) and nonstructural proteins (nsP1-4). At Creative Biolabs, we provide various reagents and antibodies for research on arboviruses, including EEEV.
