Dengue is an acute febrile disease caused by dengue virus (DENV) that is transmitted by Aedes sp., which causes serious health conditions in many countries. Non-structural protein 1 (NS1) is a co-factor for the RNA replication of this virus, which represents a new strategy for the identification of dengue. Prompt and accurate laboratory diagnosis of this infection is required to assist in patient triage and management, as well as prevent the spread of this infection.[...]
