C. Beasley & A. D. T. Barrett are both encoded by the envelope protein. A third method of identification based on complement-fixation activity has been associated with the NS1 protein. 1 One of these serogroups is the dengue serogroup, which contains four viruses, termed dengue 1, dengue 2, dengue 3 and dengue 4 (DENV-1, -2, -3, -4). 5 In addition, genotypes have been identified for each flavivirus that has been examined. These genotypes tend to relate to the geographic origin of the virus strain.

B. Halstead This was soon accomplished. In 1966, Cohen and Halstead93 published the classical description of the dengue shock syndrome, describing fully the central underlying pathophysiology as being due to the leakage of fluid and protein through damaged capillaries. This and other work in Bangkok led to the introduction of logical principles of resuscitation. Focussing on dengue shock syndrome (DSS) cases led to a breakthrough on etiology. 94 found a strong correlation between secondary-type dengue antibody responses and cases with DSS.

Over time, the syndromic term originally applied to chikungunya illnesses came to be associated with those caused by the dengue viruses.
