Dengue

Virus, Vector and Epidemiology

dengue virus
Dengue Virus
  • Causes dengue and dengue hemorrhagic fever
  • Is an arbovirus
  • Transmitted by mosquitoes
  • Composed of single-stranded RNA
  • Has 4 serotypes (DEN-1, 2, 3, 4)
dengue viruses
Dengue Viruses
  • Each serotype provides specific lifetime immunity, and short-term cross-immunity
  • All serotypes can cause severe and fatal disease
  • Genetic variation within serotypes
  • Some genetic variants within each serotype appear to be more virulent or have greater epidemic potential

aedes aegypti
Aedes aegypti
  • Dengue transmitted by infected female mosquito
  • Primarily a daytime feeder
  • Lives in and around human habitation
  • Lays eggs and produces larvae preferentially in artificial containers

recent dengue in the u s a texas
Recent Dengue in the U.S.A. (Texas)
  • Dengue epidemics occurred in the USA in the 1800s and the first half of the 1900s
  • Recent indigenous transmission:
    • 1980: first locally acquired cases since 1945
    • 1986: 9 cases
    • 1995: 7 cases
    • 1997: 3 cases
  • Lack of recent epidemic transmission likely due to changes in life style
reasons for dengue expansion in the americas
Reasons for Dengue Expansion in the Americas
  • Extensive vector infestation, with declining vector control
  • Unreliable water supply systems
  • Increasing non-biodegradable containers and poor solid waste disposal
  • Increased air travel
  • Increasing human population density in urban areas
challenges for the future
Challenges for the Future
  • 2.5 billion people at risk world-wide
  • In the Americas, 50-fold increase in reported cases of DHF (1989-1993 compared to 1984-1988)*
  • Widespread abundance of Aedes aegypti in at-risk areas
