Mpox

Latest research - articles, book chapters and trials on Mpox (formerly Monkeypox)

As the mpox outbreak— a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) declared by the World Health Organization—still spreads, those on the front lines—first responders, healthcare workers, public health experts and policy makers—need easy and unfettered access to essential research and resources.

To address these needs, this website offers carefully selected recent research published in journals from all across Springer Nature. In addition, you will find relevant book chapters, links to registered trials and also links to the brand-specific collections of publications on mpox.

"Following a series of consultations with global experts, WHO will begin using a new preferred term “mpox” as a synonym for monkeypox. Both names will be used simultaneously for one year while “monkeypox” is phased out." WHO, 28 November 2022.
