Aids in the diagnosis of dengue virus infection by detection of IgM and IgG antibodies and the nonstructural protein 1 (NS1)

Highlights

Detection of the dengue virus nonstructural protein 1 (NS1) antigen and/or antidengue virus IgM is suggestive of recent exposure and/or acute infection with dengue virus.

 

This test should be used for diagnostic purposes only.

 

Dengue NS1 antigenemia overlaps with dengue virus viremia and can be used as an acute phase marker for infection.

 

Infection with other flaviviruses, including West Nile virus, can lead to false-positive antibody results.
