Polyvalent dengue antigens are 18kDa proteins containing subtype 1, 2, 3 and 4. They are anew group of antigens specifically designed for ELISA assay. Except common epitopes shared by each subtype, this group of peptides also contains subtype specific epi

Dengue (DF) and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) are caused by one of four closely related, but antigenically distinct, virus serotypes (DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3, and DEN-4), of the genus Flavivirus. Infection with one of these serotypes provides immunity to only that serotype for life, so persons living in a dengue-endemic area can have more than one dengue infection during their lifetime. DF and DHF are primarily diseases of tropical and sub tropical areas, and the four different dengue serotypes are maintained in a cycle that involves humans and the Aedes mosquito.
