Philippines Department of Health

Philippines Department of Health has put the figure of this year’s death rate from dengue fever in the country at 724, up nearly 50 percent compared to last year.
The health department also recorded a total of nearly 120,000 cases of dengue infections in 2010, DPA reported on Thursday.
The life-threatening disease, also known as break-bone fever, has claimed more than 485 lives in 2009 in the Asian country.
Lyndon Leesuy, the Director of National Dengue Control Program, has urged local officials to take measure to inform residents about ways of avoiding contraction.
“We cannot go to your houses to eliminate the breeding sites of mosquitoes or to cover your water containers where mosquitoes can breed,” he said.
Patients affected by dengue fever feel that all of their bones are cracked from head to toe.
Symptoms include loss of appetite, general weakness, nausea, and vomiting. Please Click This..Natural Preventing Of Dengue

What are dengue fever symptoms and signs?

After being bitten by a mosquito carrying the virus, the incubation period ranges from three to 15 (usually five to eight) days before the signs and symptoms of dengue appear in stages. Dengue starts with chills, headache, pain upon moving the eyes, and low backache. Painful aching in the legs and joints occurs during the first hours of illness.

The temperature rises quickly as high as 104 F (40 C), with relatively low heart rate (bradycardia) and low blood pressure (hypotension).

The eyes become reddened. A flushing or pale pink rash comes over the face and then disappears. The glands (lymph nodes) in the neck and groin are often swollen.

Fever and other signs of dengue last for two to four days, followed by a rapid drop in body temperature (defervescence) with profuse sweating. This precedes a period with normal temperature and a sense of well-being that lasts about a day.

A second rapid rise in temperature follows. A characteristic rash appears along with the fever and spreads from the extremities to cover the entire body except the face. The palms and soles may be bright red and swollen.

First dengue vaccine in Philippines

Dengue fever, a debilitating mosquito-borne disease that infected close to 124,000 Filipinos in 2010 alone, may soon become a thing of the past.

This is because if all goes well in the final test being done here in the Philippines, the world will finally have its first effective vaccine against dengue no later than 2014.

There is currently no treatment, cure or vaccine for dengue.

The dengue fever vaccine, developed by France’s Sanofi Pasteur, is the first to undergo the advanced “Phase III” clinical trial, the final hurdle before it becomes available to the public.

The clinical trial aims to establish the efficacy of the vaccine. While the test is scheduled to last four years, the trial may be cut short especially if no dangerous side effects are detected or if the authorities and regulatory bodies including the World Health Organization and the United States Food and Drug Administration decide to fast track approval.

“Researchers worldwide have been working on a dengue vaccine for almost 60 years and for the first time, we have a potential candidate that actually shows great promise. The vaccine is important considering that while the dengue fever death toll is relatively small (of the current 27,000 hospitalized, 172 died already), most victims involve infants and young children,” says Dr. Maria Rosario Capeding, head of the Dengue Study Group that supervises the dengue vaccine clinical trial being done in San Pablo, Laguna and very soon in the province of Cebu.

Capeding explains that numerous obstacles have hindered scientists from finally coming up with an effective dengue fever vaccine. First, it could not be tested on animals the virus only infects humans.

Second, since the dengue virus has four strains, the vaccine that must be developed should induce immune responses against all four types of dengue virus.

Proving effective

“Based on the initial results observed from the 2,000 children in Laguna (ages 2 to 14) since last month, the vaccine is proving to be effective as well as safe. The result validates the report coming from Thailand where 4,000 children are being evaluated since 2009,” Capeding reports.

San Pablo and Cebu was chosen because these two areas have an established monitoring and evaluation system that is required in the monitoring of the vaccine.

The Philippines and Thailand share a common history when it comes to dengue because it was in these two countries where the dengue hemorrhagic fever, a lethal complication of dengue fever, was first reported and identified in the 1950s.

Fifty-eight years later, dengue fever has become a major international public health concern considering that majority of those affected are children ages between one and 10 years old.

Dengue Fever Rapid Test Kits

Dengue fever rapid test kits/devices, also known as one-step dengue tests, are a solid phase immuno-chromatographic assay for the rapid, qualitative and differential detection of Dengue IgG and IgM antibodies to dengue fever virus in human serum, plasma or whole blood.

This is a common test used to detect presence of dengue antibodies in the blood of a suspected dengue case.

These IgG/IgM test kit is a rapid membrane based screening test to detect the presence of antibodies produced by the body to the Dengue virus. The test can either be used with serum or whole blood and employs the use of antibody binding protein conjugated to a colloidal gold particle and a unique combination of Dengue antigen immobilized on the membrane.

How does it work?

Once the sample is added to the test cassette along with the diluents, the mixture passes through the antibody binding/gold complex, which then binds the immunoglobulins in the sample. As this complex passes over the immobilized antigens on the membrane, if any antibodies to Dengue are present, the antigens capture them. In turn, this produces a pink/purple band in the T (test) zone of the test strip.

The remaining complex continues to migrate to a control area in the test strip and produces a pink/purple band in the C (controlled) area. This band indicates that the test has been performed properly.

Dengue test kit is stable at any room temperature between 8-30 oC when in the unopened pouches.
Do not freeze the kit or expose to extreme temperatures
Stable until 24 months from the date of manufacture
Precautions

Test is for In Vitro Diagnostic use only
Appropriate infection control measures should be followed
All materials should be considered infectious and must be discarded or disinfected properly.
Do not use test beyond the expiration date indicated.
Sample Collection

Dengue IgG/IgM test can be run on serum or whole blood.
The test works best on fresh samples.
If testing cannot be done immediately, samples should be stored at 2-8 C after collection, and may remain in storage for up to 3 days.
If testing cannot be done within 3 days, serum can be stored frozen at -20C or colder.
Whole blood samples cannot be frozen, nor samples collected in EDTA, and it is recommended that finger prick blood be used.
Plasma may be used depended on anticoagulant.
Test Procedure

Remove test cassettes from the pouches as needed. Lay on a clean flat surface.
For whole blood–add 10micro of sample to Sample Well labeled A of the test cassette using measuringpipette.
For serum–add 5micro sample to the sample well labeled A of the test casette.
Follow sample addition with 3 drops of the diluent provided in the dropper bottle by holding the bottle vertically over the (S) well.
Results are then read in after 5 minutes for strong positives, or up to 30 minutes for weaker positives and to make sure negatives are confirmed.
Note: If the dye has not cleared the membrane, or blood is still present, one or two more drops of diluents may be added
to the (S) well.

Reading the Results

NEGATIVE

Only 1 (one) pink/purple band appears in the C (control) line area of the test casette.

POSITIVE

Two pink/purple bands appear, one in the C (control line), and one in the T (test line) area of the test strip.

INDETERMINATE

If only one band appears in the T well Test area, or no band appears at all in the C well –Control area, it is then recommended that a fresh device be used and the test repeated, carefully following the directions in this insert. Test should be repeated.

Anti-dengue awareness campaign in comics

1. Some 100 million people around the world get dengue every year, according to the World Health Organization. Dengue cases grow by 90 to 300 percent annually in various parts of the Philippines. Dengue is an acute infectious viral disease that can kill. The virus is transmitted by aedes mosquitoes.

2. Symptoms: Headache, vomiting, high temperatures that persist, muscle and joint pain, pain around the eyes and skin blotches. The disease is usually mistaken for the flu, that’s why it is not treated on time. Don’t delay, consult a medical practitioner.

3. Early treatment is important to prevent death from dengue. Have a CBC so that your platelet count can be determined. You have dengue when your platelet count is low. If this happens, go immediately to a hospital. Don’t take aspirin and NSAID as these help increase bleeding.

4. Make tea from tawa-tawa (Euphorbia hirta) and young kamote (sweet potato) leaves. Make juice from two papaya leaves and drink it. Plant eucalyptus, neem and citronella in your backyard so you can use their leaves for incense. [Note: The Department of Health has not declared tawa-tawa a dengue cure.]

5. Clean surroundings. Ensure that there is no stagnant water in flower pots, plastic bags, tires, cans, bottles and gutter where mosquitoes can breed. Ensure that water channels are not clogged. Fill up potholes so that they won’t collect water.

6. Rest. Take nutritious food (soft diet like congee). Take paracetamol and have a sponge bath so that the fever would subside. Go to a hospital to find out whether you have dengue hemmorhagic fever. Your liver could be affected if your platelet count drops precipitously. Protect yourself with mosquito nets, screens and nontoxic insect repellents.

7. Boost the immune system by eating vegetables and fruits. Drink copious amounts of water, coconut juice and herbal tea. Also take supplements like M+ to get vitamins A, B, C, K, folic acid and minerals. A weak body is susceptible to disease.

8. Dengue super heroes. Frogs, birds, fish and dragonflies that kill thousands of kiti-kiti (mosquito larvae) and mosquitoes are adversely affected by herbicides, pesticides and other poisonous chemicals. DEET, a potent poison, poses a threat to children. The best way to fight dengue is to kill mosquito larvae.

How to Increase Platelet Count

Because of the risk factors associated with very low platelet count, a lot of emphasis is made to make sure that one has a healthy level of platelet count in the body.

The following are the common ways that will help prevent platelet count from dropping:
Take a lot of vitamin C supplements.

You can obtain vitamin C from fruits and vegetables. Because vitamin C is water soluble, it can be easily absorbed by the body and will immediately help in restoring the body’s platelet count.

Herbal medications are also helpful in restoring platelet count. In most instances, one will need to pound the herb with pestle and mortar to extract the juice.
Although the juice is very bitter and requires a lot of effort downing them, it is worth it.

Most people even add sugar to the juice to make it more palatable and easy to drink.
However, the most common home remedy is to drink the bitter extract from a papaya leaf. Two leaves without the stalk can yield approximately two tablespoons of the extract.
