Role of NS1 antibodies in the pathogenesis of acute secondary dengue infection

Abstract:

Antibody responses to recombinant-NS1 are assessed in serum samples obtained throughout illness of patients with acute secondary DENV1 and DENV2 infection by ELISA. NS1 antibody titres are significantly higher in patients with DHF compared to those with DF for both ...
