Combining clinical and epidemiological risk factors with this test will help in the identification of the Japanese encephalitis virus. Japanese encephalitis virus-specific fluorescent reporter dye probes are used to identify the RNA that has been isolated from samples, amplified using RT-PCR, and identified.

How do you define Japanese encephalitis?

In Asia, acute encephalitis syndrome (AES) is most frequently attributed to the Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV). Anti-JEV IgM-antibody-capture-enzyme-linked-immunosorbent-assay is the test that the WHO advises (JEV MAC-ELISA). Data, however, indicate that this has a low positive predictive value and that vaccination and other Flavivirus infections can cause false positives. JEV RT-qPCR testing on additional bodily fluids may help with the diagnosis.

Why is this examination suggested?

  • When bitten by an infected mosquito, humans can become ill.
  • A cycle of mosquitoes, vertebrate hosts, primarily pigs and wading birds, maintains the virus.
  • Because humans typically do not produce high enough quantities of the JE virus in their bloodstream to infect feeding mosquitoes, they are accidental or dead-end hosts.
  • The majority of infections in people are asymptomatic or perhaps mildly symptomatic.
  • Yet, only a small proportion of infected people experience brain inflammation. When 4–7 days have passed since the onset of clinical symptoms, patients' cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and serum samples can be used to diagnose Japanese encephalitis infection by looking for particular IgM antibodies.
  • The brief period of viremia only lasts throughout the initial stages of the illness.
  • When the disease is in its early stages, blood or CSF samples, as well as cerebral biopsies from patients who have passed away, can be used for viral direct detection by RT-PCR.


  • The Japanese encephalitis virus can be found with this technique.
  • The majority of infections in people are asymptomatic or perhaps mildly symptomatic.
  • However, only a small portion of infected people have brain inflammation (encephalitis), which can include convulsions, tremors, a high fever, and sudden onset of headaches.
