Anti-dengue virus immunoglobulin M kits were evaluated. Test sensitivities were 21%-99% and specificities were 77%-98% compared with reference ELISAs. False-positive results were found for patients with malaria or past dengue infections. Three ELISAs showing strong agreement with reference ELISAs will be included in the World Health Organization Bulk(More)
Humans who experience a primary dengue virus (DENV) infection develop antibodies that preferentially neutralize the homologous serotype responsible for infection. Affected individuals also generate cross-reactive antibodies against heterologous DENV serotypes, which are non-neutralizing. Dengue cross-reactive, non-neutralizing antibodies can enhance(More)
Twenty-three HIV-1 isolates were recovered from PBMCs from 26 HIV-1-seropositive individuals in northern Thailand. The viruses grew readily in human PBMCs but only 7 of 17 (41.2%) and 5 of 17 (29.4%) replicated and only at a low level in primary macrophages and in established T cell lines, respectively. By immunoblot assays, sera from Thai subjects were(More)
The envelope (E) protein of dengue virus (DENV) is the major target of neutralizing antibodies (Abs) and vaccine development. Previous studies of human dengue-immune sera reported that a significant proportion of anti-E Abs, known as group-reactive (GR) Abs, were cross-reactive to all four DENV serotypes and to one or more other flaviviruses. Based on(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) isolates recovered from infected children in Romania were characterized for their biologic, serologic, and molecular properties. The isolates were from subjects in different clinical states, and all showed cytopathic properties in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and varying kinetics of replication. The isolates(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the biological and serological properties of the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) for factors potentially involved in the mother-to-child transmission of HIV-1. DESIGN Isolates of HIV-1 were recovered from the blood of 12 of 44 nontransmitting mothers and six of eight transmitting mothers and their corresponding infants.(More)
Serum antibody responses were studied in detail in four vaccinia-naive volunteers in a phase I trial evaluating primary vaccination with a recombinant vaccinia virus expressing the HIV-1 gp160 envelope glycoprotein (HIVAC-1e, Oncogen/Bristol-Myers Squibb), followed by booster immunization with baculovirus-derived rgp160 (VaxSyn, MicroGeneSys). Prior to(More)
Antibody-dependent enhancement of certain virus infections can occur in cells expressing Fc receptors. This mechanism plays an important pathogenetic role in the development of complications associated with dengue virus infection, including dengue hemorrhagic infection and dengue shock syndrome. The virulence of the virus, characterized by the ability to(More)
