This article highlights a brief overview about the Dengue Fever (DF), its distribution around the world, symptoms and cuse of spreading mechanism. Also, using of bio-pesticides have been discussed with the beneficial effects to control the disease. Dengue fever (DF) is a well known and serious disease, spreaded by Aedesmosquitoes. The virus which is responsible for the transmission of the disease made its host to the Aedesmosquito. The four serotypes of the dengue viruses are responsible for the infection, which results in the acute fever, skin rashes, heamorage and sometimes even shock to the patient. We are also highlighting the molecular ineteractions mechanism of virus and the host cell with emphasizing the receptor molecuels of the host cell surface, which is considered to be a very first step for the pathogenesis of dengue. But till date, our knowledge is not that much about these receptor molecules in human monocytes, which are the prime targets of the dengue virus (DV). The envelop proteins from the virus and heparin sulfate of the host cell surface facilitates the binding between the virus and host cell through the receptors and play a key role in virus-cell attachment and binding. Controlling stretegies are also discussed with the vector control, chemical therapeutic antiviral agents and antiviral vaccines etc., along with brief introduction of neem based pesticide formulations developed at IPFT recently which are eco friendly and safe for humans as well.
