May 9th : Scientific Seminar 02:00 PM : ”Antibody effector responses in Dengue & The discovery of novel biomarkers associated to disease outcome after dengue virus infection“
2 talks of 2 x 20min :
Title: “Antibody effector responses in Dengue.”
Speaker: David Guerrero, Master Student
Dengue virus (DENV) has been for quite long one of the most noticeable and problematic vector-borne pathogens all around the world. Antibody dependent functions are key immunological processes controlling viral infections and have been reported to be essential in the response against DENV infection. The present project had as its aim to explore the presumptive protective roll of antibody dependent effector functions during DENV infection.
Title: “The discovery of novel biomarkers associated to disease outcome after dengue virus infection.”
Speaker: Axelle Vanderlinden, Master Student
Up till now, no routine laboratory biomarker is available to predict the development of severe dengue disease in patients. This presentation will focus on the enhancing capacities of the antibodies developed during dengue infection and on dendritic cells in order to find a potential biomarker to predict severe dengue disease in patients.
