A prospective study of clinical and cytokine profiles of 107 infants with dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF)/dengue shock syndrome (DSS) was conducted. Fever, petechiae on the skin, and hepatomegaly were the most common clinical findings associated with DHF/DSS in infants. DSS occurred in 20.5% of the patients. Hemoconcentration and thrombocytopenia were(More)
The association between sex, nutritional status, and the severity of dengue hemorrhagic fever/dengue shock syndrome (DHF/DSS), and immune status was investigated in 245 Vietnamese infants with predominantly primary infections with dengue virus. Male and female infants were at equal risk of developing DHF/DSS. However, infants of low height and weight for(More)
The dengue shock syndrome (DSS) is primarily a complication of dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) among children in South East Asia. A case-control study was carried out at the children hospital no 1 (Ho-Chi-Minh City, Vietnam) in May-July 2005, to identify the predictive factors of the DSS among 1-15 year patients with DHE Forty consecutive admitted cases and(More)
Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) is a human pathogenic, mosquito-borne flavivirus that is endemic/epidemic in Asia. JEV is rarely detected or isolated from blood or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and detection of IgM is generally diagnostic of the infection. The flavivirus nonstructural glycoprotein NS1 is released transiently during flavivirus replication.(More)
Background: Dengue viruses (DENV1-4) are estimated to infect 50-100 million individuals per year worldwide including an estimated 500,000 people with severe dengue who require hospitalization every year. The live, attenuated, tetravalent dengue vaccine (CYD-TDV) candidate, containing four recombinant dengue viruses (CYD14), is in clinical phase III.(More)
OBJECTIVE A cross-sectional survey was conducted in three districts of Quang Ninh province, Viet Nam, to find out what proportion of the people who lived there engaged in behaviour that put them at risk of becoming infected with HIV, and to measure their knowledge about HIV infection and AIDS. METHODS The survey was conducted in a rural district, Yen(More)
Dengue has emerged in Vietnam 50 years ago and since has become endemo-epidemic throughout the whole country. Each year, major epidemics of dengue fever (DF) and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) hit South Vietnam during the rainy season, causing significant morbidity and mortality, especially among young children. The only preventive measure is vector(More)
Volume replacement was studied prospectively in 208 infants with dengue hemorrhagic fever/dengue shock syndrome (DHF/DSS). The mean volume of intravenous fluid used was 110.4 mL/kg administered over a mean period of 25.8 hours. The mean volumes of intravenous fluid replacement in infants with DSS was significantly higher than in those with non-shock DHF(More)
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), frequently occurring during suppressed hematopoiesis including aplastic anemia (AA), is a clonal disorder associated with an increased incidence of thrombotic events. Complementmediated hemolysis, impairment of the fibrinolytic system, or platelet activation are thought to be responsible for the associated(More)
