Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 檢查肝臟、腎臟及其他生化功能,並分析宿主免疫調控及血小板變化機致 [ Time Frame: 2007/7/1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    抽血20 c.c 檢查肝臟、腎臟及其他生化功能,並分析宿主免疫調控及血小板變化機致


Estimated Enrollment: 700
Study Start Date: July 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
healthy Genetic: CLEC5A
SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) genetic analysis of CLEC5A receptor (from exon 1 to exon 7)
DF Genetic: CLEC5A
SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) genetic analysis of CLEC5A receptor (from exon 1 to exon 7)
DHF Genetic: CLEC5A
SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) genetic analysis of CLEC5A receptor (from exon 1 to exon 7)

Detailed Description:

Research has showed that CLEC5A interacts with dengue virion directly, and is responsible for dengue virus (DV)-induced DAP12 phosphorylation. Data suggests that CLEC5A is a potential therapeutic target for dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF)/dengue shock syndrome (DSS). This project will study the genes of CLEC5A, Mannose receptor, DC-SIGN, NALP, decoy receptor 3 (DcR3), Toll-like receptors(TLRs), and (Nod)-like receptors (NLRs) for both DF and DHF groups. In addition, serum level of decoy receptor 3 (DcR3) will be tested. The study will collect the blood samples from 350 healthy persons and 350 persons infected with dengue fever.
