Background The envelope protein (E protein) of dengue virus is responsible for binding the virus to the host cell. This protein is considered an important immunogen for neutralization of the virus, the only able to induce the production of neutralizing antibodies [1]. The aim of this study was to use the Cowpea Mosaic Virus (CPMV) as a vector to express, on(More)
Background Some plant viruses have been used to express and / or car peptides from human and animal pathogens for diagnostic purposes or vaccine. This system has presented many advantages over traditional methods, especially with regard to cost and production of peptides free of pathogens [1]. In this context, the possibility of using these viruses in an(More)
Background Dengue virus nonstructural protein 1 (NS1) is a highly conserved glycoprotein involved in the production of infectious virus and the pathogenesis of dengue disease [1]. Serum or plasma DENV NS1 level has been found to correlate with viremia titer and disease severity. It can be found in the peripheral blood circulation for up to 9 days from(More)
INTRODUCTION The diagnosis of dengue and the differentiation between primary and secondary infections are important for monitoring the spread of the epidemic and identifying the risk of severe forms of the disease. The detection of immunoglobulin (Ig)M and IgG antibodies is the main technique for the laboratory diagnosis of dengue. The present study(More)
