This monograph ends with a lengthy and rather inconclusive discussion on the current status of dengue vaccines for use of man. This emphasis is deliberate: the practical solution of pressing medical problems through prophylaxis or therapy is, after all, an ultimate aim of “basic” and “applied” research on infectious diseases; the inconclusiveness shows how much more needs to be learned.
