|Abstract: ||Dengue, the most prevalent arthropod-borne (mosquito) viral disease of humans is a major cause of morbidity throughout tropical and subtropical regions of the globe and continues to spread alarmingly. Dengue virus has grown dramatically worldwide in recent years.
newline Dengue virus is the main cause of dengue fever (DF) and dengue hemorrhagic fever/dengue shock syndrome (DHF/DSS). DENV can be classified into five immunologically related but genetically and antigenically different serotypes (DENV-1 5).
newlineThe present study aims to study the prevalence of dengue virus and identify serotype circulating in tertiary care Hospital at Kanpur. This study also includes the prevalence of primary and secondary dengue fever. To study the demographic profile of dengue fever and correlate prevalence of dengue fever with climate changes. And identification of circulating serotypes of dengue virus. This study suggest health authorities and people should make efforts to prevent further increase in dengue cases by community awareness, early diagnosis and management and vector control measures.
