Abstract

An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the detection of antibodies to dengue virus is described. This method correlates well with a hemagglutination inhibition technique. The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay can also be specific for human immunoglobulin M antibodies when μ-chain-specific antiglobulin-enzyme conjugate and fractionated serum are employed. By using this technique, dengue immunoglobulin M antibodies were demonstrated in an infant suspected of having a recent dengue infection.
