May 17, 2012 -- Dengue Virus is endemic in tropical countries world wide. It causes an insect-borne (mosquitoes) infection that manifests as Dengue Fever.
However the infection can progress to more serious conditions including hemorrhagic fever. There are 4 serotypes of the virus and all are capable of causing disease.
A non-structural glycoprotein (NS1) is produced during acute infection and can be found at high levels in patient serum.
ViroStat has released several new monoclonal antibodies to the NS1 of Dengue virus. These antibodies recognize the NS1 protein of all 4 Dengue serotypes and are powerful tools for researchers and developers of rapid detection methods.
