Press Release on Dengue Virus Research: September-2018

Dengue virus transmission dominated by those with undetected infection

People showing just about no symptoms are doubtless the first supply of dengue, in step with new analysis revealed in PLOS Pathogens. Nearly four hundred million folks annually are infected with dandy fever virus, that is transmitted through mosquitoes.

The study estimates that quite eighty % of dandy fever virus infections are as a result of people with gentle to no symptoms UN agency don’t obtain treatment from a Dr.. [1]

Co-Existance of Dengue Fever And Malaria In Patients Presenting With Febrile Illness

and protozoal infection in patients presenting with a feverish health problem.Introduction: protozoal infection is the world’s most widespread infection. It happens throughout most of the tropical regions of the world. Plasmodium falciparum predominates in the continent, plasmodium is additional common in Central America, Plasmodium malariae is found in most endemic areas, particularly throughout the continent, Plasmodium ovale is unusual outside of continent and contains <1% of isolates. The principle of this study is to substantiate dual infections (malaria and dengue) in our setup so as to treat and stop complications of the co-existing malady. [2]

Prevalence of Dengue Virus Transovarial Transmission and DHF Incidence Rate in Grogol Sub-district of Sukoharjo District

Environmental changes in physical, biological, and social aspects have enabled the incidence of DHF cases in Sukoharjo. Such changes could have an effect on virulence of dengue fever virus, shorten outside periods and increase vector dengue fever capability. This study aimed to work out the unfold of dengue fever virus transovarial transmission and therefore the incidence rate of DHF in Grogol Sub-district of Sukoharjo District. This empiric analytic study used a cross-sectional approach conducted in 2016. The population was Ae. aegypti mosquitoes and DHF patients (based on laboratory identification with the serological examination, i.e., IgG, immune globulin and/or NS1 indicating positive DHF). information analysis used Chi-square, Multiple rectilinear regression, and spatially weighted regression with GeoDa and SatScan.

A CLINICAL STUDY OF DENGUE VIRUS INFECTION IN PEDIATRICS

Dengue infection may be a major and vital public ill health in several South East Asian countries and conjointly in additional than a hundred countries of tropical and subtropic region.1Two–fifths of the world’s population or 2500 million individuals area unit currently in danger for dengue fever, and each year roughly fifty million new cases occur world wide2Dengue is that the commonest arboviral sickness transmitted globally, is caused by four antigenically distinct dengue fever virus serotypes (DEN one, DEN 2, DEN three and DEN 4). The global prevalence of dengue fever infection has raised dramatically within the recent decades. Dengue infection of the classical kind has been endemic in an Asian country for several years. [4]

Detection of Dengue Virus in Samples from Suspected Yellow Fever Cases in Ghana

Background: dengue remains a heavy public health threat throughout the planet. Republic of Ghana shares borders with countries that have according to dandy fever cases, nevertheless no case has been according in the Republic of Ghana. dandy fever infections with its broad variety of clinical displays build it probably unrecognized by clinicians. during this study, serologic tests were accustomed observe antigens and antibodies and molecular tests were accustomed observe microorganism ribonucleic acid specific to dandy fever viruses in archived human tumor specimens in the Republic of Ghana.

Methods: Blood samples of 360 patients aged half-dozen months to eighty-two years recent with the suspected infectious disease in hospitals across the Republic of Ghana were tested for dandy fever virus exposure. Samples were screened mistreatment South Dakota dandy fever NS1 atomic number 47 enzyme-linked-immunosorbent serologic assay and also the South Dakota dandy fever IgM/ immunoglobulin capture enzyme-linked-immunosorbent serologic assay check, that detects dandy fever virus matter and antibodies to dandy fever virus in human blood.
