This is the first report of an antibody capable of neutralizing all four forms of dengue.Annually, an estimated 400 million cases of the disease worldwide, and about a quarter of them are symptomatic. There is epidemiological evidence that major release occurs more regularly in a second infection with a different serotype. Dengue hemorrhagic fever leads to shock, bleeding and easyshare z990. According to the professor, Department of Clinical Medicine and the Department of Pathology, Federal University of Ceará (UFC) Anastacio de Queiroz Sousa, one of the main challenges is the universal protection. There are no vaccines available for any of the types of dengue virus. “It has recently produced a vaccine (against the four types) which, while protecting a significant percentage of people are far from the desired. If we consider all age groups, this protection is up to 64%, “explains the also member of the Emerging Diseases Committee of the Brazilian Society of Infectious Diseases.
Sousa believes that, still a good result, have nearly 40% of the unprotected population is worrisome. The great advantage of the London work, he said, is to have found an antibody that neutralizes all kinds of viruses. The expert notes that the tests for safety and efficacy of the vaccine and later large-scale development hers are distant, but points out that the discovery has already been disclosed is a major step in that direction. “There is a great possibility because they have realized this in the laboratory; and there is a very positive perspective of these authors, considering a disease that has no vaccine and those in final tests are far from the protection we would like. “Sousa says that we can hardly wait immunizing as effective for dengue as for other kodak z990 camera, to about 95% protection. “The aim should be that the human body to be stimulated, produces monoclonal antibodies which are present against almost any virus, blocking the proliferation and reaching the neutralization.”
