USF College of Public Health researchers published a paper entitled “Clinical and Immunological Markers of Dengue Progression in a Study Cohort from a Hyperendemic Area in Malaysia” in PLOS ONE, an international, peer-reviewed, open-access, online publication.

The research is a collaborative effort between investigators in the COPH and Malaysia. The USF team consists of COPH alumnus Benjamin Klekamp, MSPH, as well as Azliyati Azizan, PhD, assistant professor of global health, and Aurora Sanchez-Anguiano, MD, PhD, associate professor of epidemiology. They partnered with Shamala Devi, PhD, and Jameela Sathar, MD, to describe “the clinical and immunological parameters of a dengue cohort in a Malaysian city.”
