Dengue Research in India
A major issue for the country like India is that there is an increment in health problem of the country just due to dengue fever. From the last few decades, it is found that there are more outbreaks of causes related to dengue in some parts of India.

The Aedes Aegypti Mosquito
According to the study, it is found that during the onset period of monsoon, Aedes mosquitoes start breeding. In some of the region, it is found in the urban areas, people are more prone to dengue in the period of pre-rain than the period of post-rain. It is just because during the pre-rain duration there is a shortage of water which in turn creates the storage of water and later on turns in to a breeding house for mosquitoes.
With the invention of dengue vaccine from 1940s, there is no vaccine has been developed for the dengue fever. There are various studies done on the part to invent a vaccine for dengue but still there is no result found for that. Scientists stated severe problems with the invention of dengue vaccine. They are as follows:
- It is said that there are four types of dengue viruses and there is no vaccine formed to induce the immunity which can affect all the viruses.
Dengue can be affected by four types of viruses, so if any virus affects the body it will only give immunity to the similar type but not to other types. Subsequently, if there is an occurrence of the infection in the body by any of the viruses, it can lead to fatal infection of dengue. This is the problem where there is no vaccination which can provide immunity against all the four types.
