Table 2 Distribution of DENV serotypes among those blood donors diagnosed with primary and secondary viremic infections

From: The prevalence of dengue virus serotypes in asymptomatic blood donors reveals the emergence of serotype 4 in Saudi Arabia

  DENV Serotypes by PCR Total (%)
DENV-1 (%) DENV-2 (%) DENV-3 (%) DENV-4 (%)
Primary viremic infection 4 (8) 8 (16) 1 (2)b 9 (18)d 22 (44)
Secondary viremic infection 6 (12) 16 (32)a ND (0)a,c 6 (12)b,d 28 (56)
Total (%) 10 (20) 24 (48)a 1 (2)a,b 15 (30)d 50 (100)
  1. ND = not detected
  2. a = P < 0.05 compared with DENV-1
  3. b = P < 0.05 compared with DENV-2
  4. c = P < 0.01 compared with DENV-2
  5. d = P < 0.05 compared with DENV-3
