    Description

    Globally, there are 50-100 million cases of dengue fever, with 500,000 cases of the more severe dengue haemorrhagic fever, each year. Australia has between 100 and 900 cases of dengue infection annually, often from travellers, but disease outbreaks occur in northern Australia. Effective anti-viral treatment will reduce disease burden. The project contributes to an evidence-based drug design program in collaboration with Australia's leading biotechnology industries. As a biotechnology industry project developing treatments for an emerging disease, it contributes to the national research priorities of Frontier technologies for building and transforming Australian industries, Promoting and maintaining good health and Safeguarding Australia.
