Dengue virus vaccine development, with guest Stephen Thomas, MD, on Upstate's The Informed Patient podcast

Prevention of the deadly disease remains elusive

The challenges of fighting the dengue virus, including the complications of creating a vaccine, are discussed by infectious disease specialist Stephen Thomas, MD. Thomas directs Upstate's global health and translational sciences department, many of whose researchers study dengue, a tropical and subtropical disease that occurs in parts of the U.S. as well as overseas. Dengue is the topic of an international conference that Thomas and his colleagues are hosting in Syracuse to discuss efforts to prevent and treat the disease as well as how different nations deal with its social and economic disruptions.
