Abstract

Antibodies against dengue virus type 2 and 4 proteins in acute-phase sera of 10 primary and 10 secondary dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever patients were studied by Western blotting. In the first group the immune response was barely detectable, while in the second group more proteins were detected, with a very strong reaction. Anti-NS1 and -NS3 antibodies were detected mainly in secondary cases. Anti-E, -NS3, and -NS5 antibodies were detected in a high number of cases. The possibility of implementing early diagnostic assays for antigen detection is suggested.
