Pandengue Conference April 2016

5th Pan-American Dengue Research Network Meeting, April 2016

Dengue virus (DENV) is the cause of the most important arthropod-borne viral infection on humans, around the world. In tropical and subtropical regions in the Americas, Dengue is considered among the most serious health problem; moreover the demographic changes, the rapid urbanization and global travel has promoted the appearance of the disease in new geographic regions. In many countries in Latin America all four DENV serotypes are actively circulating. Moreover recently other viruses transmitted by the same vectors as Chikungunya, have arrived in the Americas, increasing the risk of severe diseases and co-infections. Our Goal With this meeting is to provide an update of important aspects of the Dengue, Chikungunya and comorbidities, including: the cost of the disease, virology, pathogenesis, immunology, epidemiology, prevention, control, treatment and diagnosis.  In addition, this workshop will provide the opportunity for scientific exchange between academia, government and industry from the Americas.
