EPIDEMIOLOGY

  • Risk factors for severe disease.

    • Sequential dengue infection (includes antigenic structure of virus)

    • Race

    • Age

    • Host genetic factors

    • Nutritional status

    • Sex


Race

  • Caucasian & Asian vs African.

    At least 5:11,2

  • Guzman MG et al. AJTMH 42:179-184, 1990.

  • Halstead SB et al AJTMH 65:180, 2001


BLACKS ARE RELATIVELY RESISTANT TO SEVERE DENGUE ILLNESS

  • A human resistance gene seems to explain the observation that while all dengue virus types circulate in Africa no DHF/DSS cases or outbreaks of DF have been reported.

NUTRITIONAL STATUS


NUTRITIONAL STATUS OF DHF CASES vs. CONTROLS


Effect of nutritional status on dengue disease severity1

Well nourished children:

highly susceptible to severe disease

Malnourished: protected against severe disease (protein-calorie malnutrition grade 2 and 3)

DHF/DSS during primary dengue infections.


DHF/DSS in infants, identical to but more severe than DHF/DSS in children

  • Higher case fatality rates, resuscitation requires more fluid per Kg body weight than in older children with 2o infection.

    • Hung NT et al AJTMH 72:370, 2005

  • Circulating cytokines and cytokine levels during acute phase similar to those in older children during 2o infection.

WHY DO MATERNAL ANTIBODIES ENHANCE DENGUE DISEASE?

CENTRAL ROLE OF MACROPHAGES IN SUPPORTING DENGUE INFECTIONS IN HUMANS


Dengue viruses are adapted to grow in dendritic cells,

monocytes and macrophages.

Complexed with antibodies dengue viruses enter FcR-bearing cells with great efficiency.


IMMUNE ENHANCEMENT OF DENGUE INFECTION(Antibody-Dependent Enhancement)

  • In the presence of dengue ADE antibody:

  • increased rate of infection

  • increase in the number of infected cells.

  • increased production of viruses per cell.

WHY?

  • Possible effect of

    • ADE

    • Heterotypic immunity

    • Replacement of serotypes

    • Clade extinctions

  • These possibilities have been explored in mathematical models, most are based upon the hospital epidemiological data from Bangkok or all of Thailand.


EFFECT OF ADE ON EPIDEMIC CYCLES

  • “Enhancement of infection may generate a complex and persistent cyclical or chaotic epidemic behavior ….and coexistence of mutiple strains”

    • Ferguson N et al. The effect of antibody-dependent enhancement on the transmission dynamics and persistence of mutiple-strain pathogens.Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 96:790-4, 1999


EFFECT OF HETEROTYPIC IMMUNITY ON EPIDEMIC CYCLES

  • 8-10 year epidemic cycles are accompanied by clade extinctions.

  • Mathematical model suggests that heterotypic immunity is responsible.

    • Adams B et al PNAS 103: 14234-9, 2006


SEROTYPE REPLACEMENT

  • DENV -1 replaced DENV 2, 3, 4. Related to stochastic event due to low transmission in 1999-2000?

    • Thu HM et al. Myanmar denge outbreak associated with displacement of serotypes 2, 3 and 4 by dengue 1. Emerg Infect Dis 10:693-7, 2004.


CLADE EXTINCTIONS DUE TO STOCHASTIC EVENTS

  • In Myanmar, clades B and C of genotype I DENV -1 circulated with clade A genotype III during the 1990s. After 1998, clade A disappeared leaving only clades B and C.

    • Thu HM et al Lineage extinction and replacement in dengue type 1 virus populations are due to stochastic events rather than to natural selection. Virol 336:163-72, 2005.

  • In Thailand, clades of DENV -3 circulating prior to 1992 disappeared and were replaced by two lineages with common ancestor.Earlier extinctions, 1963, 1973?

    • Wittke V et al. Extinction and rapid replacement of strains of dengue 3 virus during an interepidemic period. Virol 301:148-156, 2002.
