The invention relates to an inactivated dengue virus vaccine to immunize and protect humans against dengue fever. The vaccine is based on dengue viruses which have been propagated to high titers in suitable cells, purified and inactivated under conditions which destroy infectivity but preserve immunogenicity, a high level of which is demonstrated in animal models. Uses of the inactivated dengue virus for detecting antibodies to dengue and kits therefore are also described.Start Signature
