The plaque reduction neutralization titer (PRNT) assay is diagnostic test used for measuring the immune response to dengue vaccines. WHO emphasizes that dengue vaccine introduction should be a part of a comprehensive dengue control strategy, including a well-executed and sustained vector control, the best evidence-based clinical care for all patients with dengue illness, and dengue surveillance.

Increase in incidence of dengue fever is the key factor driving the demand of dengue vaccines market globally. In addition sudden climatic changes, development of new vaccines such as live-attenuated dengue vaccines, government initiatives, unplanned and uncontrolled urbanization, lack of basic amenities in communities, and poor environmental management are factors that are expected to boost the growth of global dengue vaccines market.

Inadequate cold chain systems for storage of vaccine, standardised diagnostics practice, lack of proper surveillance system and regulatory hurdles in vaccines preparations are the factors hindering the growth of the global dengue vaccine market.

Certain vendors are focusing on introducing dengue vaccines and expanding its portfolio and presence across developing countries in the Asia Pacific region through government support. For example, Sanofi’s ‘dengvaxia’ is the only licensed dengue vaccine worldwide and the company is expanding its presence across Asia Pacific region. In addition, in 2017, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Ltd announced plans to launch a dengue vaccine in order to cater to preventive measure for dengue disease across the globe.
