Diagnosis of dengue virus infection in travelers is often based on commercially available ELISA-based serological assays and not on the more difficult and costly procedures of Hemagglutination inhibition (HI), virus isolation or RT-PCR. These standard assays are not quantitative and are designed to diagnose primary and secondary dengue virus infections by testing for IgG and IgM antibodies. However, cross reactivity between various flaviviruses and the fact that most travelers today are… CONTINUE READING
