The study seeks to assess the effectiveness of Sanofi Pasteur´s dengue vaccine (Dengvaxia®) according to the age, dose and municipality of residence in five municipalities of Paraná State. Specific objectives include:
- To assess the effectiveness of Dengvaxia® in preventing dengue hospitalization and dengue symptomatic cases.
- To assess the effectiveness of Dengvaxia® in preventing dengue hospitalization and dengue symptomatic cases according in the following age groups 15 to 18 and 19 to 27 years of age in the municipalities of Maringá, Foz de Iguaçu, Londrina, Sarandi and Paranaguá.
- To assess the effectiveness of Dengvaxia® in preventing dengue hospitalization and dengue symptomatic cases in the following age groups 9 to 14 and 28 to 45 years of age in the municipality of Paranaguá.
The effectiveness of Sanofi Pasteur´s dengue vaccine (Dengvaxia®) according to the age will be assessed in five municipalities of Paraná State - Maringá, Foz de Iguaçu, Londrina, Sarandi and Paranaguá. Any health service located in each of the five municipalities may report a suspected dengue case. However, in all five municipalities, there is a large public emergency service, the UPA. There are currently three UPA in Londrina, two in Maringá and Foz do Iguaҫu and one each in Paranaguá and Sarandi. These facilities are responsible for reporting the majority of suspected dengue cases. In Londrina and Maringá, the private health sector also provides emergency care. The implementation of the study protocol adds a collection of a blood sample for PCR to the existing protocol for addressing suspected dengue cases among individuals within the target vaccination age groups.
The study will count on the activities already carried out by teams of epidemiological surveillance of dengue intensifying the identification of the serotype through the laboratory method RT-PCR (Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction) in real time. In addition, the investigators will identify hospitals and health units that attend dengue cases for sample collection, to perform real-time RT-PCR and initial processing of the blood samples collected from the controls.

Dengue fever, which is caused by dengue viruses, is a major health problem in subtropical regions of the world. There are four different forms (serotypes) of dengue virus that can cause d...
This is an observational study that aims to determine the effectiveness of a tetravalent dengue vaccine (CYD-TDV) when given through a community-based immunization program against hospital...
Patients with dengue exhibit a range of symptoms from acute febrile illness (dengue fever, DF) to dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF), to the most severe outcome, dengue shock syndrome (DSS). To understand...
Dengue is an important mosquito-borne disease. There is currently only one licensed vaccine for dengue prevention. The vaccine provides higher efficacy in pre-vaccination dengue-seropositive persons b...
Many studies have shown associations between rising temperatures, El Niño events and dengue incidence, but the effect of sustained periods of extreme high temperatures (i.e., heatwaves) on dengue out...
The immune profile of dengue-experienced individuals is a determinant of dengue reinfection severity risk. Individuals with a single prior dengue infection (monotypics) are at highest risk for severe ...
The public health burden of dengue is most likely under reported. Current dengue control measures only considered symptomatic dengue transmission. Hence, there is a paucity of information on the epide...
An acute infectious, eruptive, febrile disease caused by four antigenically related but distinct serotypes of the DENGUE VIRUS. It is transmitted by the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes, especially A. aegypti. Classical dengue (dengue fever) is self-limiting and characterized by fever, myalgia, headache, and rash. DENGUE HEMORRHAGIC FEVER is a more virulent form of dengue virus infection and a separate clinical entity. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
A distinct and virulent form of DENGUE characterized by thrombocytopenia and hemoconcentration (grades I and II) and distinguished by a positive tourniquet test. When accompanied by circulatory failure and shock (grades III and IV), it is called dengue shock syndrome. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
A virulent form of dengue characterized by THROMBOCYTOPENIA and an increase in vascular permeability (grades I and II) and distinguished by a positive pain test (e.g., TOURNIQUET PAIN TEST). When accompanied by SHOCK (grades III and IV), it is called dengue shock syndrome.
A species of the genus FLAVIVIRUS which causes an acute febrile and sometimes hemorrhagic disease in man. Dengue is mosquito-borne and four serotypes are known.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent infection with DENGUE VIRUS. These include live-attenuated, subunit, DNA, and inactivated vaccines.
