3 Several important features of dengue disease Dengue virus infection causes diverse disease spectrum from mild DF to severe DHF/DSS.Dengue disease can occur in infant, children, and adult.Severe DHF/DSS is more prevalent in secondary infection with different serotype of dengue virus.Antibody-dependent enhancement is hypothesized to explain the severe DHF/DSS in secondary infection.Thrombocytopenia and plasma leakage are two major characteristics of DHF/DSS.The pathogenesis of DHF/DSS is not clearly demonstrated. The progression from DF to DHF/DSS is not predictable.Supportive care is the only way to treat the DHF/DSS patients.Dengue vaccine is not commercially available yet.
4 Infant (5%) Children (85%) Adult (10%) Comparative study Immune immaturePrimary infectionMaternal antibody effectADE hypothesisSecondary infections with different serotypesHigher case fatality rate in elder in TaiwanComparative studyThe pathogenesis for DHF/DSS has to account for all these three entities in dengue virus infection.

6 Unique features of dengue disease in Taiwan Dengue outbreak starts by imported case from abroad, spread out locally, then distinguish in the winter. This transmission pattern repeats every year.Put all efforts to eliminate breeding sources and control of infectant mosquitoes.Dengue disease primarily occur in adult.Dengue virus-infected elders with underlined diseases have high case fatality of DHF.Most clinicians are not familiar with the pathogenesis of dengue disease, and sometime have over or inappropriate medical treatment.The progression from DF to DHF/DSS is not predictable.Dengue vaccine is not commercially available or considered yet.

9 The role of antibodies on dengue disease Ab-dependent enhancementOld dogma for dengue virus-induced DHF/DSSAnti-prM Ab by its dual-specific binding of dengue virus and target cells to enhance the dengue virus infection.Enhancing antibodies are concentration-dependent and serotype-independent..Affected the design of dengue virus vaccine development..Pathogenic autoantibodyAcute dengue virus infection induces autoantibody productionAnti-dengue Abs cross-react with platelet and endothelial cell, and cause a transient hemophagocytic-like syndrome.Will have great impact on safety of dengue vaccine
10 Antibody-dependent Enhancement in Dengue Virus Infection: An Old but Unresolved Dogma Enhance the dengue-infected cell mass.Enhance the dengue virus replication?Suppress the anti-viral activity via FcRII signaling?The characteristics of the enhancing antibody?The target cells: requirement of receptors other than FcR?The dengue virion: E or prM? Which epitope?
12 ADE of dengue virus infection Anti-E Ab/Anti-prM Ab on FcR-bearing cells via FcgR-dependent mannerAnti-prM Ab on non-FcR-bearing cells via dual specific bindingEnhancing antibodies for ADE are concentration-dependent, and serotype-independent.
21 Issues need to be addressed in the next class: Why dengue is not controllable worldwide?Any measure for Taiwan’s dengue control and surveillance?Pathogenesis or immunopathogenesis?The mechanism of antibody-dependent enhancement?Dengue virus infection and autoimmunity?The prospect of Dengue vaccine development?The need for anti-dengue virus or disease treatment?
