Crimean Congo Hemorrhagic Fever Virus Glycoprotein 38 (gp38)

CCHF virus Glycoprotein 38 (referred to as gp38), has been manufactured by The Native Antigen Company to meet the increasing need for high quality reagents for research into diagnosis of CCHF, as well as vaccine development.

CCHFV GP38, a secreted non-structural glycoprotein of unknown function unique to the Nairoviridae family, was recently shown to be the target of a protective antibody against CCHFV  (Golden et al.,  2019) & identifies GP38 as an important antigen to be included in future immunotherapeutic solutions against CCHFV in humans (Suschak et al., 2021)

BACKGROUND

Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) virus is a tick-borne enveloped single stranded RNA virus that belongs to the genus Nairovirus and a member of the Bunyaviridae family. CCHF virus causes a hemorrhagic disease in humans with up to 80% case fatality. Although the virus has only caused sporadic disease in the past, the expansion of the range of its vector, the Hyalomma tick, is causing increasing concern that case numbers will continue to rise (Dowall et al., 2017).

Since CCHF was first described in Crimea in 1944, sporadic outbreaks have occurred globally. In 2015, CCHFV was identified by the WHO as an emerging virus which is likely to cause a severe epidemic and which may present a public health emergency. Zoonotic transmission from host animals is the primary route of infection, with concerns this may increase in the next 10-20 years as the timing of religious festivals change. The virus may also be spread effectively by human to human contact, especially in hospital settings. There are also concerns that it may be used as a bioterrorism agent, with evidence that work on this was carried out both in the USSR and in Iraq.
