Description

Chikungunya IgM Test

Chikungunya test is used to find out the Chikungunya Antibodies-IgG in the blood.

What are antibodies and their actions?

Antibodies are the protective proteins produced by the immune system and known as immunoglobulins. Antibodies are produced when any foreign substance or virus or bacteria enters the body. These foreign substances are known as antigens. Antibodies recognize and attach to the antigens in order to remove them from the body. There are five (5) subtypes of antibodies and they are IgG, IgM, IgA, IgD, IgE.

IgG provides long-term protection as it presents in the circulation for a long period after an antigen. IgM enhances the ingestion of cells by phagocytosis. IgA is also the first defense of the intestine, lungs, and nose. They bind antigens to the microbes before they invade tissues and keep antigens in secretion and when secretion is expelled, antigens are also expelled.

IgD helps in the induction of antibody production and presents on the surface of B-cells. IgE binds to the basophils and mast cells.

What are chikungunya antibodies?

Chikungunya is a viral disease caused by Alphavirus. It is transmitted to humans by infected mosquitoes. It is rarely fatal and has been identified in nearly forty 40 countries. The virus remains in the human body for 5-7 days. Chikungunya has similar symptoms as dengue and one can misdiagnosis the disease.

Chikungunya antibodies are the antibodies produced by the immune system to fight the chikungunya.
