The performance of the novel commercial test ASSURE® Dengue IgA Rapid test (MP Diagnostics) was evaluated using a panel of 172 sera collected from dengue patients and 47 sera from healthy blood donors. The overall specificity and sensitivity were 61.0% and 85.1%, respectively. However, the positivity rate for IgA went from 33.3% for sera collected the same day of fever onset to 81.2% for sera collected 5 days after fever onset. Infections with serotype 2 viruses were detected more efficiently than those with serotype 1 viruses, and no sera from infections with serotypes 3 and 4 were available. In addition, the kit was twice more efficient at detecting secondary infections than at detecting primary infections. Finally, the ASSURE® test showed good repeatability and reproducibility. The results of this study suggest that the ASSURE® Dengue IgA Rapid test may become a useful and easy-to-use test for early dengue diagnosis.
