Replication of chimeric yellow fever virus-dengue serotype 1-4 virus vaccine strains in dendritic and hepatic cells.


ChimeriVax-dengue (DEN) viruses are live attenuated vaccine candidates. They are constructed by replacing the premembrane (prM) and envelope (E) genes of the yellow fever (YF) 17D virus vaccine with the corresponding genes from wild-type DEN viruses (serotypes 1-4) isolated from humans. In this study, the growth kinetics of ChimeriVax-DEN1-4 and parent… (More)
