Abstract : The purpose of this contract was to analyze human immune responses to dengue virus infections. To understand the role of immune responses in recovery from dengue virus infection and in the pathogenesis of dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue shock syndrome, we have analyzed human CD4+ CD8- T cell responses to dengue virus, human CD8+ CD4- T cell responses to dengue viruses, activation of T lymphocytes in vivo in dengue virus infections, dengue virus infection of human cell lines, enhancement of dengue virus infection by antibodies to dengue virus, antibody-dependent enhancement of dengue virus infection mediated by bispecific antibodies, production of interferon by dengue virus infected cells, and induction of virus infected monocytes.
