Detection of Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV)-specific IgM by IgM-capture ELISA has been accepted as the standard for serological diagnosis. In the present study, we analysed the time course of the positive rate of JEV-specific IgM in serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens from confirmed JE patients. Serum and CSF samples were obtained from 155 JE cases for diagnostic purposes at hospitals in Thailand from 2002 to 2004.
