Dengue Fever - A global fast-emerging pandemic-prone viral disease
people have Dengue infections every year
people progressed on to develop Severe Dengue and required hospitalization
hospitalized Severe Dengue patients die from the disease
worth of socioeconomic cost
Currently, doctors are unable to predict the progress of the disease due to the lack of a Severe Dengue prediction test. Patients often end up being admitted to hospital even when they do not progress to Severe Dengue. This leads to overhospitalization in both developing and developed countries.
StratifiCare™ has discovered a panel of biomarkers which are able to determine the progress of Dengue Fever. Patients who are predicted not to progress to Severe Dengue can be managed at outpatient settings instead. This reduces the overhospitalization issue faced by hospitals and relieves healthcare burden in countries.
