Study of dengue-like illness in Kampong Thom Province, Cambodia (DenThom)



We aim to study the prevalence and incidence of dengue and dengue-like illness in Cambodia by implementing a novel study site in Kampong Thom Province.


We hypothesize that the investigation of dengue and dengue-like illness at a hospital and linked community site located within the centre of the country together with associated mosquito population characterizations will greatly increase our understanding of the seasonal and spatial occurrence of dengue and dengue-like syndromes and the exposure of the Cambodian population (children and adults) to arboviral infections. This will inform the authorities to design better intervention strategies for dengue control. The associated biobank will serve for immunopathological investigations in dengue infection, validation of novel diagnostic tools for dengue, and discovery of novel biomarkers for dengue disease and the identification of novel RNA viruses with potential for outbreaks.
