In order to provide timely information for the effective treatment of dengue patients, it is important to establish diagnosis of Dengue virus infection during the first few days of clinical symptoms. Furthermore, determination of the serotype of Dengue virus is also important for the surveillance of Dengue Fever. If not diagnosed earlier the infection will lead to increased mortality and morbidity. Hence, the aim is to diagnose Dengue infection, its local epidemiology, seroprevalance and determination in Thanjavur district by viral isolation using cell line, serological tests, and molecular methods and genome sequencing.

Keywords: Dengue, seroprevalance, Cell line, Serotype determination.
