Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School researchers make new discoveries in fight against dengue

02 July 2015 | Research

A team of researchers led by Assoc Prof Lok Shee-Mei from the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School (Duke-NUS) has identified an antibody that could neutralise serotype 2 - a strain of the dengue virus which has four serotypes. The discovery brings the researchers closer to devising a drug cocktail to fight dengue.

Another group of Duke-NUS researchers led by Assoc Prof Ooi Eng Eong has identified how small changes in the dengue's genome could allow the virus to penetrate human immune defences and spread more efficiently.
