It's a huge step toward preventing an infection that puts half of the world’s population at risk.

It comes after 20 years of research.

A research team led by UC Berkeley molecular virologist Eva Harris made a breakthrough that could save some of the 22,000 people a year who die from dengue. About 390 million people are infected annually with the virus, which is primarily spread by Aedes mosquitoes.
由加州大學伯克利分校分子病毒學家 Eva 哈裡斯率領的研究團隊突破了可以挽救一些人員 2.2 萬人患登革熱死一年。約 3 億 9000 萬人每年感染了病毒,主要由伊蚊傳播。

Blocking this protein may prevent the virus' lethal effects, and ultimately may lead to a vaccine.
