Background: This study aims to estimate the age-specific risks of clinical dengue attack (i.e., the risk of symptomatic dengue among the total number of dengue virus (DENV) infections) during primary and secondary infections.

Dengue virus is an important human pathogen that belongs to the Flaviviridae family. The viral genome is a single molecule of RNA of positive polarity that plays multiple roles during the viral life cycle. Besides encoding the viral proteins, the genome contains RNA structures that regulate different viral processes.

Aedes aegypti là vector của một số arboviruses khác nhau như bệnh sốt xuất huyết, Chikungunya, virus sốt vàng da, và một số  khác, bao gồm cả các bệnh mới có thể xuất hiện trong bối cảnh biến đổi khí hậu. Loài này thường sinh sống xung quanh hoặc bên trong nhà  ở.

Background: Dengue Fever and Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever (DF/DHF) is a major global health problem, primarily of tropical and subtropical areas. Clinical diagnosis is based on criteria of WHO. Laboratory diagnosis is not applied.  Purpose: to detect and determine percentage of the anti-dengue IgM antibody on adult patients are diagnosed DF/DHF by clinical.

Method: descriptive and cross-sectional methods were used on 101 serum samples from patients at Thong nhat hospital from June 2006 to November 2006. MAC-ELISA (IgM antibody capture enzyme linked immunosorbent assay) was tested to detect the anti-dengue IgM antibody. 

Results: The majority of patients were detected in young (16-40 year olds). The positive anti-dengue IgM antibody is 62.38% in general. This percentage is higher in patiens with fever over 5 days and highest in group under 20 year olds patients – 73.91%

Conclusion: MAC-ELISA can be used in clinical surveillance for viral illness. It is useful for hospitalized adult patients and atypic clinical symptoms.
