U.S. Centers for Disease Control Guidance Includes EUROIMMUN Assay in its Two-Step Testing Algorithm for Dengue Virus
EUROIMMUN assay used to detect previous dengue virus infection will help children and adolescents gain access to vaccine
Dengue disease is caused by four distinct, but closely related dengue viruses (DENV-1–4), which are part of the same group of vector-borne RNA viruses as the Zika virus. Antibodies formed against flaviviruses like dengue and Zika can cross-react and be detected by serological assays. However, because eligibility for the Dengvaxia vaccine requires proof of prior dengue infection, an assay that can measure virus-specific antibodies for dengue, such as the EUROIMMUN Anti-Dengue Virus NS1 Type 1-4 ELISA, is needed.
“The EUROIMMUN US organization is committed to supporting the efforts of the
In 2019, more than 3 million dengue cases were reported from countries in South, Central, and
The EUROIMMUN Anti-Dengue Virus NS1 Type 1-4 ELISA (IgG) is based on recombinant virus-specific NS1 antigen of types 1-4. It is authorized for research use only in
