Detection of Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV)-specific IgM by IgM-capture enzymed-linked immunosorbent assay (IgM-capture ELISA) has been accepted as the standard for serological diagnosis. In the present study, we analyzed the time course of the positive rate of JEV-specific IgM in serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens from confirmed JE patients. Serum and CSF samples were obtained from 155 JE cases for diagnostic purposes at hospitals in Thailand from 2002 to 2004. The levels of… CONTINUE READING
