New 2016 MeSH Headings: Zika Virus Infection and Zika Virus

Tybaert S. New 2016 MeSH Headings: Zika Virus Infection and Zika Virus. NLM Tech Bull. 2015 Jan-Feb;(408):e1.
2016 January 29 [posted]

On January 27, 2016, two new MeSH headings were added to the 2016 MeSH Browser in response to increased reports in the literature about the Zika virus outbreak and its tentative association with microcephaly in newborns as well as possible paralysis and Guillain-Barre Syndrome in adults:

The terms also appeared in the MeSH export file available to licensees on January 27, 2016. Indexing for the new headings began January 28, 2016.

In addition, NLM Indexing staff will review citations previously indexed on this topic to determine if the new headings should be applied to the citations.

Here is a suggested interim PubMed search strategy to retrieve citations on Zika until the review of previously indexed citations is completed:

Zika [tiab]

Using the [tiab] search tag finds citations that have already been indexed with MeSH or are still in process. The tag restricts retrieval to the article title, abstract, or author keyword fields and prevents false drops from other fields such as author name.

(JF – Here is a suggested way to search for the Zika virus infections, for articles not yet indexed and those already indexed –> http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=%22Zika+Virus+Infection%22[Mesh]OR+Zika[tiab] ]

A Zika Virus Health Information Resources page, from the Disaster Information Management Research Center at NLM, gathers resources on the emerging health issues arising from the Zika Virus. For additional information see the article, NLM Disaster Information Management Research Center Resource List Updates.

Most segments are run one to five minutes. A complete list of the videos may be found here.

Unique features  (through left column) include

  • Three dimensional look at anatomy through rotation
  • Natural colors, texture, and mobility through moving structures
  • Dissections by skilled clinical anatomists
  • Concise narration and labelled structures
  • Complex structures built step by step
