Recent Advances in Monkeypox (Mpox): Characterization, Diagnosis, and
Therapeutics - A Multidimensional Review
Monkeypox (Mpox) is an uncommon viral infection closely related to
smallpox, manifesting as a milder febrile rash in affected individuals.
Over the past two decades, the incidence of Mpox has surged, possibly
linked to a declining immunity against the smallpox vaccine worldwide.
Recent outbreaks of Mpox in multiple countries have sparked concerns
regarding altered transmission patterns and the potential for a global
menace. In this article, we present a multidimensional review,
encompassing the latest scientific discoveries, illuminating the
intricate structure of human Mpox virus. Additionally, we explore
noteworthy breakthroughs in diagnostic techniques and therapeutic
interventions. By shedding light on the molecular aspects,
epidemiological trends, and clinical manifestations, our review aims to
facilitate a comprehensive understanding of Mpox, providing critical
insights for the field of virology and guiding public health efforts in
combating this emerging threat.
