Women who have previously been infected with dengue virus may be at risk for increased damage to their fetuses and placentas if they should later become infected with the Zika virus, researchers from the Department of Microbiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai report. This study is the first to report a […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers at Duke-NUS Medical School have demonstrated for the first time a physical interaction between two types of immune cells that plays an important role in the early fight against dengue virus infection. Dengue virus is widespread in the tropics and is transmitted by mosquitos. Dengue virus infection incidence has grown dramatically in recent years, […]Continue Reading ...
Jan 23 2019 Previous infection with dengue virus may protect children from symptomatic Zika, according to a study published January 22 in the open-access journal PLOS Medicine by Eva Harris of the University of California, Berkeley, and colleagues.

Dengue and Zika are transmitted by the same mosquito species and their distribution now overlaps in many tropical regions of the world. Credit: Jenna Hambrick, La Jolla Institute for Immunology To say that the immune system is complex is an understatement: an immune response protective in one context can turn deadly over time, as evidenced […]Continue Reading ...
August 15, 2018 A lineage of type 1 dengue virus found in Brazil is able to prevail over another even though it multiplies less in vector mosquitoes and infected human cells. This discovery was made under the scope of a Thematic Project supported by the São Paulo Research Foundation – FAPESP involving several Brazilian institutions […]Continue Reading ...
July 6, 2018 New Study Examines Cellular, Molecular Differences Between Dengue, Zika More than two years after reports of skyrocketing Zika rates surfaced worldwide, questions still loom about this complicated virus. Florida State University researchers are one step closer to finding answers. In an article published today in the journal Stem Cell Reports, Professor of […]Continue Reading ...
May 4, 2018 People showing virtually no symptoms are likely the primary source of dengue fever, according to new research published in PLOS Pathogens. Nearly 400 million people each year are infected with dengue virus, which is transmitted through mosquitoes. The study estimates that more than 80 percent of dengue virus infections are attributable to […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, Sept. 27, 2017 (HealthDay Information) — A brand new speedy, simple and inexpensive “dipstick” check for the Zika and dengue viruses may just revolutionize public well being reaction to bad tropical germs, a brand new learn about studies. The check correctly diagnoses Zika and dengue and will inform the 2 mosquito-borne viruses aside, a […]Continue Reading ...
A prior dengue virus infection could protect children from symptomatic Zika virus infection, according to a study by an international group of researchers including those from the University of Michigan and the University of California, Berkeley. “We don’t think that that dengue immunity protects from being infected (with Zika), or at least it doesn’t look […]Continue Reading ...
Children with a history of prior dengue virus infection had a significantly lower risk of being symptomatic when infected by Zika virus, according to a study in Nicaragua of more than 3,000 children aged 2 to 14 years. Experts have worried that prior dengue virus infection could exacerbate severe Zika disease. However, the new findings, […]Continue Reading ...
Treatment for Prevention of Dengue FDA Grants Priority Review for Sanofi’s Dengue Vaccine Candidate BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Oct. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted a Biologics License Application for Sanofi Pasteur’s dengue vaccine. The dengue vaccine candidate has been granted priority review by the FDA as it would […]Continue Reading ...
August 2, 2018 Dengue and Zika viruses are closely related and carried by mosquitos. In infested subtropical and tropical areas, dengue transmission often precedes Zika virus (ZIKV) infection, suggesting that women who previously acquired dengue immunity may be bitten by ZIKV-carrying mosquitoes during pregnancy. Whether that mother’s prior dengue immunity would protect her unborn baby […]Continue Reading ...
May 28, 2018 Limiting global warming to 1.5°C could avoid around 3.3 million cases of dengue fever per year in Latin America and the Caribbean alone – according to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA). A new report published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) reveals that […]Continue Reading ...
An antibody administered soon after infection with Zika virus protected the fetuses of pregnant mice (left), while the fetuses in infected mice that did not receive the antibody withered away (right). Researchers have identified an antibody that protects against both dengue and Zika disease, a first step toward an antibody-based preventive drug to protect fetuses […]Continue Reading ...
