Chikungunya virus infection and cholangiocarcinoma; a common pathway network analysis

Won Sriwijitalai1*, Viroj Wiwanitkit2

Abstract


Cholangiocarcinoma is an important endemic malignancy in Southeast Asia. This hepatobiliary
cancer is related to the chronic opisthorchiasis. In the same area of Indochina, Chikungunya
virus (CHIKV) infection, another mosquito borne infection, is also prevalent. An interesting
observation is the null prevalence of concurrent CHIKV infection and cholangiocarcinoma. In
this study, the authors used bioinformatics pathway analysis for clarification on this interesting
phenomenon. From analysis, no co-occurrence of the two diseases is explainable from the
pathway network.
