Tick-borne Encephalitis IgG Antibodies
Determination of Tick Encephalitis Immunoglobulin G antibody levels in the blood by immunoenzymatic method
If you have been vaccinated and want to check whether antibodies against the tick-borne encephalitis virus are still formed in your immunity, then you need to perform a tick-borne encephalitis IgG blood test, which will show the level of antibodies in the blood. It must be elevated above the norm to avoid revaccination. If the results of this blood test are within the normal range, you should be revaccinated against tick-borne encephalitis.
The tick-borne encephalitis virus enters the human body during blood sucking by a tick. The most effective and the only specific preventive measure for protection is vaccinations. If after a tick bite you feel such symptoms as: fever (99%), fatigue (63%), general weakness (62%), bone, muscle and headache (54%), you should be checked for tick-borne encephalitis. In routine diagnostics, tick-borne encephalitis virus is detected by immunoenzymatic analysis for IgM and IgG class antibodies. The IgM class shows the acute form of inflammation, and the IgG class shows the chronic form of inflammation. From infection to the first signs of the disease, 2-28 days pass, on average 7-14. The first phase of the disease lasts 1-8 days.
