Abstract

Background: Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a potentially fatal disease caused by a tick-borne virus from the Bunyaviridae family. It has recently been reported that soluble urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR), secreted from endothelial cells and the mononuclear phagocyte system, one of the main targets of the CCHF virus, is a potential biomarker for several bacterial and viral infection diseases.
