JE and Dengue

Panbio’s new JE-Dengue IgM Combo ELISA

  • Both Dengue and Japanese encephalitis (JE) belong to the Flavivirdae family and co-circulate in many parts of the world (Figure 1 – following slide).
  • Serological distinction between these two flavivirus infections is often necessary though difficult due to the level of cross-reactive epitopes within the flavivirus family.
  • Accurate detection of these viruses is paramount to treatment and surveillance programs.
  • Serological tests to assist in the diagnosis of dengue virus infection are widely available, however limited commercial viral diagnostics for JE have been available.

japanese encephalitis 1
Japanese encephalitis1
  • Japanese encephalitis (JE) virus: flavivirus antigenically related to St. Louis encephalitis virus
  • Transmitted via mosquitoes of theCulex tritaeniorhynchus group
  • Can cause acute encephalitis which may progress to paralysis, seizures, coma and death,however the majority of infections are subclinical
  • Case-fatality ratio: 30%
  • Serious neurologic sequela: 30%
  • Leading cause of viral encephalitis in Asia with 30-50,000 cases reported annually
  • Those at risk include:
    • Residents of rural areas in endemic locations
    • Active duty military deployed to endemic areas
    • Expatriates in rural areas
    • Disease risk extremely low in travellers
dengue 2
  • Dengue virus serotypes 1 – 4: flavivirus
  • Transmission via mosquito(Aedes aegypti)
  • Symptoms include sudden onset of fever, severe headache, myalgias and arthralgias, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia and hemorrhagic manifestations
  • Occasionally produces shock and haemorrhage, leading to death
  • Incidence is variable depending on epidemic activity
  • Globally, there are an estimated 50 to 100 million cases of dengue fever (DF) and several hundred thousand cases of dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) per year
  • Average case fatality rate of DHF is about 5%
  • The disease is experiencing a resurgence in the tropics and epidemics are larger and more frequent
dengue and je the complicated diagnosis
Dengue and JE: the complicated diagnosis
  • Early in infection dengue and JE can present similarly.
    • fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, and myalgia4,5
  • Both are associated with patients having a history of mosquito exposure in endemic areas.
  • Level of cross-reactivity among the Flavivirus group has traditionally complicated serological diagnosis.
why distinguish between je dengue
Why distinguish between JE & dengue?
  • Correct diagnosis is important for public health surveillance
  • Enable the accurate assessment of the JE burden
  • Ensure correct treatment
    • Although the treatment for both infections is supportive and in no anti-viral therapy available, patients with JE may require feeding, airway management and seizure control4.

JE-Dengue IgM Combo ELISA
  • Intended use
    • The Panbio Japanese Encephalitis - Dengue IgM Combo ELISA is for the qualitative presumptive detection of IgM antibodies to Japanese encephalitis and dengue virus in serum as an aid in the clinical laboratory diagnosis of Japanese encephalitis and dengue virus infection in patients with clinical symptoms consistent with encephalitis or dengue fever.
    • This assay is a serological aid to diagnosis of Japanese encephalitis or dengue infection and positive results should be confirmed by PRNT or current CDC guidelines.
product positioning
Product positioning
  • Laboratory market
  • Offer to laboratories already using Panbio Dengue products
  • Laboratories may choose to continue using the Panbio Dengue ELISAs or rapids to differentiate between primary and secondary dengue infection
    • JE-Dengue IgM Combo ELISA does not differentiate between primary and secondary dengue infection
  • Offer to laboratories currently referring JE testing
  • Use the JE-Dengue IgM Combo ELISA for JE diagnosis primarily
  • Areas where dengue co-circulates

Name: Japanese Encephalitis - Dengue IgM Combo ELISA

Cat No:E-JED01C

Expiry:12 months from date of manufacture

Storage:2 – 8°C

Antigen: Recombinant Dengue 1 – 4 Recombinant JE

Antigen prep: Dilute 1/250 prior to use

(discard any left-over diluted antigen)

Sample: Serum

Assay time:2 hr 10 min total incubation time

Kit size: 48 tests (96 well plate provide, 2-wells required per patient)

Procedure:Standard Panbio capture ELISA format

  • Each sample is tested in duplicate, with one well using JE-MAb complex and the other well using Dengue-MAb complex in the second step.
  • Dilute both antigens 1/250 using the Antigen Diluent prior to use. Remaining unused concentrated antigen shouldbe stored at 2-8ºC.
  • Continue as per the following flow diagram

JE-Dengue IgM Combo ELISA

Serum antibodies combine with the anti-human IgM coated on the plate. Simultaneously the peroxidase conjugated MAb and antigen supplied form complexes when incubated together.

Washing removes residual serum

The antigen-Mab complexes bind if antigen-specific antibodies have been captured.

The colourless substrate, tetramethylbenzidine/hydrogen peroxide (TMB/H2O2) is hydrolysed to a blue chromogen

Stopping the hydrolytic reaction

with acid turns the TMB yellow

Colour development indicates the presence of specific antibodies in the test sample

Interpretation #

* Resultsshould be confirmed by PRNT or current CDC guidelines.

# Refer to Instructions for use for full interpretation guidelines

interpretation cont
Interpretation cont.
  • If positive on the dengue kit, this indicates a dengue virus infection, even if also positive on the JE kit.
    • On the Panbio JE-Dengue IgM Combo ELISA cross-reactivity was predominantly only found one way i.e. at the JE level.
    • This cross-reactivity is a common feature of flavivirus antibody assays and is typically more dramatic when native virus preparations are used.
    • The specific recombinant virus antigens used in this assay provide distinct advantages over typical native virus preparations especially the dengue virus antigens.
  • Therefore the two-well approach is essential to distinguish between dengue and JE.

Inhouse study presented at JE Bi-Regional Meeting,

  • The development of a 2-well ELISA utilising specific recombinant antigens provides a significant improvement in the diagnosis of Japanese encephalitis.
  • Assay has a high level of dengue and JE sensitivity as well as specificity.
  • Because of the high level of specificity of the dengue recombinant antigen, a simple positive / negative comparison of the 2-well result can be used to determine a presumptive diagnosis.
  • The format of the tests allows use of common reagents with both JE and dengue antigens, including positive and negative control sera, enhancing ease of use.
