Evaluation of commercially available serologic diagnostic tests for chikungunya virus.

Abstract

Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is present or emerging in dengue virus-endemic areas. Infections caused by these viruses share some common signs/symptoms, but prognosis, patient care, and persistent symptoms differ. Thus, accurate diagnostic methods are essential for differentiating the infections. We evaluated 4 CHIKV serologic diagnostic tests, 2 of which showed poor sensitivity and specificity.
