About Dengue virus serology

What is dengue virus?

The dengue virus is carried by mosquitoes and causes dengue fever. It is most common in tropical areas. Symptoms of dengue fever include a high temperature, a bad headache, muscle and joint pain, nausea and vomiting and pain behind the eyes. Less frequently, it can also lead to severe complications such as hemorrhagic fever and circulatory system failure.

Dengue antibodies are produced by the body’s immune system in response to infection. The presence of specific antibodies (proteins produced by the immune system to help fight infections) can indicate the timing and type of infection.

Why take the test?

This test detects the presence of dengue antibodies in the blood to help diagnose an infection caused by the dengue virus.
