*Please note that aptamers have much lower molecular weights than antibodies. Thus, there are typically five to fifteen times as many moles or molecules of aptamers present in a solution containing an equal mass. For example, 100 micrograms of an aptamer is equivalent to 0.5 to 1.5 mg of antibody, depending on the particular aptamer.

According to the CDC, 50 to 100 milllion people, primarily in the tropics, are infected with dengue virus each year. There are approximately 500,000 cases of dengue hemorragic fever, and 22,000 deaths. There are no vaccines against dengue and no treatment for infection. The NS1 protein is detectable in human serum of infected individuals. It is a 50 kDa non-structural glycoprotein that interacts with intracellular membranes and the cell surface. The NS1 protein appears to utilize normal lipid metabolic pathways to affect the complement system and promote infection.
