Japanese Encephalitis Virus (JEV) is a flavivirus related to Dengue, Yellow Fever and West Nile Viruses.

Like many flaviviruses, it is transmitted by mosquitoes, particularly those of the genus Culex, in a natural cycle involving birds and some livestock species. It is the main cause of viral encephalitis in Asia and is endemic in 24 countries within SE Asia and Pacific regions, exposing more than 3 billion people to a risk of infection.

Most JEV infections are mild (fever and headache) or without symptoms, although there is a high mortality rate (30%) amongst those who develop encephalitis. There is no cure for the disease and treatment focuses on relieving severe clinical symptoms. Individuals who live in or have travelled to a JEV-endemic area and experience encephalitis are considered a suspected JEV case. To confirm an infection and to rule out other causes of encephalitis requires a laboratory testing of serum or, preferentially, cerebrospinal fluid.

Currently, ELISAs are widely used for JEV detection, specifically antibody capture assays that detect an infected patient's IgM antibody to JEV in serum.
