The Butantan Institute initiates human clinical trials of the Brazilian vaccine against dengue in late September. Will be selected 300 volunteers of both sexes, which must be in good health and have between 18 and 59 years.

Earlier, the immunobiological will be tested in 50 people who did not have dengue. In the second stage will be recruited 250 volunteers with or without prior infection with dengue virus. The tests take place in a period of five years and all volunteers will be accompanied by a multidisciplinary team involving physicians, nurses and pharmacists.

Preliminary analyzes will be conducted after a year and a half of testing, which will begin preparations for the next phase will enable the registration of the vaccine. Designed to protect against four types of dengue virus, the vaccine has been developed since 2005 in partnership with the National Institutes of Health of the United States.

The tests will occur initially in the Clinical Research Center of the Hospital of the Faculty of Medicine, USP, and then in the Research Institute of Clinical Child and HC-USP Hospital of the Faculty of Medicine of Ribeirão Preto, also the USP.
