Abstract Dengue viruses are responsible for over 100 million infections a year worldwide and are a public health concern in Bangladesh.

PLOS 21/06/18 Risk factors for the presence of dengue vector mosquitoes, and determinants of their prevalence and larval site selection in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Although risk of transmission is high, data on vector population characteristics are scanty in Bangladesh; therefore, a comprehensive prediction of the patterns of local virus transmission is not possible. Recognizing these gaps, multi-year entomological surveys were carried out in Dhaka, where the disease is most frequently reported. The specific objectives of the present study are threefold: i) to determine the risk factors for the presence of Aedes mosquitoes; ii) to identify the types of most productive and key containers; and iii) to estimate the effects of climatic factors on Aedes abundance in the city of Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Entomological surveys were conducted in 12 out of 90 wards in Dhaka.

PLOS 12/11/18 Geostatistical mapping of the seasonal spread of under-reported dengue cases in Bangladesh. Abstract Geographical mapping of dengue in resource-limited settings is crucial for targeting control interventions but is challenging due to the problem of zero-inflation because many cases are not reported.

PLOS 12/11/18 Geostatistical mapping of the seasonal spread of under-reported dengue cases in Bangladesh

We developed a negative binomial generalised linear mixed effect model accounting for zero-inflation, spatial, and temporal random effects to investigate the spatial variation in monthly dengue cases in Bangladesh. The model was fitted to the district-level (64 districts) monthly reported dengue cases aggregated over the period 2000 to 2009 and Bayesian inference was performed using the integrated nested Laplace approximation. We found that mean monthly temperature and its interaction with mean monthly diurnal temperature range, lagged by two months were significantly associated with dengue incidence.

Mean monthly rainfall at two months lag was positively associated with dengue incidence. Author summary Editor: Christopher M. Copyright: © 2018 Sharmin et al. Introduction Fig 1.

VIROLOGY JOURNAL 15/08/19 Evaluation of novel rapid detection kits for dengue virus NS1 antigen in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in 2017

To increase testing throughput, we used a dipstick format, which permitted completion of each test in approximately 15 min (depending on humidity conditions). We conjugated the MAbs with AuNPs, adsorbed the MAbs onto nitrocellulose membranes, and tested all combination of MAbs by placing dipsticks in microcentrifuge tubes or the wells of a 96-well plate containing 60 μL of extraction buffer and 30 μL of sample specimen per tube or well. First, we tested recombinant NS1 proteins of all four serotypes of DENV and selected 12 combinations that showed signal/background ratios greater than 2.0.

The high percentage of amino acid homology and identity among flavivirus NS1 proteins has been reported previously [39]. Actress Bobby infected with dengue! 13 DU students under grip of dengue.
