Abstract

An evaluation of total immunoglobulin E (IgE) and dengue serostatus in 168 subjects from San Andres Island, Colombia, revealed altered levels of IgE in 89% of the population. IgE levels were higher in patients with a history of dengue or with a current secondary or current primary infection than in subjects with no exposure (P = 0.01). Dengue infection accounted for 23% of the variation in IgE levels.
