Alphaviruses are arthropod-borne viruses that cause disease in humans and a wide range of domestic and agricultural animals. Interest in development of alphavirus therapeutics and vaccines has risen in recent years due to epidemics of Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) causing severe illness in Africa and Asia and concerns about possible use of Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus (VEE) as an agent of bioterrorism. IBT's alphavirus reagent line covers Chikungunya and Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis Virus. Reagents include antisera and purified polyclonal antibodies. Specific targets include CHIKV, CHIKV E2 protein, and VEE.
