Epidemiology of dengue disease in Malaysia (2000-2012): a systematic literature review.

Mohd-Zaki AH, Brett J, Ismail E, L'Azou M - PLoS Negl Trop Dis (2014)

Bottom Line: The epidemiology of dengue disease in Malaysia was characterized by a non-linear increase in the number of reported cases from 7,103 in 2000 to 46,171 in 2010, and a shift in the age range predominance from children toward adults.Several gaps in epidemiological knowledge were identified; in particular, studies of regional differences, age-stratified seroprevalence, and hospital admissions.PROSPERO #CRD42012002293.

ABSTRACT

Unlabelled: A literature survey and analysis was conducted to describe the epidemiology of dengue disease in Malaysia between 2000 and 2012. Published literature was searched for epidemiological studies of dengue disease, using specific search strategies for each electronic database; 237 relevant data sources were identified, 28 of which fulfilled the inclusion criteria. The epidemiology of dengue disease in Malaysia was characterized by a non-linear increase in the number of reported cases from 7,103 in 2000 to 46,171 in 2010, and a shift in the age range predominance from children toward adults. The overall increase in dengue disease was accompanied by a rise in the number, but not the proportion, of severe cases. The dominant circulating dengue virus serotypes changed continually over the decade and differed between states. Several gaps in epidemiological knowledge were identified; in particular, studies of regional differences, age-stratified seroprevalence, and hospital admissions.

Results of literature search and evaluation of identified studies according to PRISMA.All references identified in the on-line database searches were assigned a unique identification number. Following the removal of duplicates and articles that did not satisfy the inclusion criteria from review of the titles and abstracts, the full papers of the first selection of references were retrieved either electronically or in paper form. A further selection was made based on review of the full text of the articles.

Mentions: This review concentrates on national epidemiological data, including the latest unpublished data received from the Malaysian MoH [12]. Data were collated from several sources [3], [9], [12], . Most of the national epidemiological data for the period 2000–2012 were derived from annual surveys or statistical tables produced by the Malaysian MoH and published by the MoH and the WHO (Table S1). These were either found during the initial searches or recommended by members of the LRG to supplement incomplete data presented in the reports. The literature searches identified 237 relevant data sources, 28 of which fulfilled the inclusion criteria for the analysis (Figure 2; Table S1). Of the 28 sources, there were 14 journal articles that mainly described regional epidemiological data derived from small surveys and studies conducted in individual Malaysian states and regions (Table S1). These are reported here briefly as supporting data.
