Dengue Ns1 Positive: Everything To Know

About:


Dengue Ns1 antigen detection confirms mosquito-borne Dengue viral infection. This test is conducted within 1-2 days following Dengue infection and upto 9 days following the symptoms.


An estimated 390 million dengue infections occur worldwide each year, with about 96 million resulting in illness. [1]


- Requires blood serum tests
- Dengue Ns1 affects all ages
- Dengue Ns1 affects both the sexes
- Treatable by a physician

- Side by side blood platelets count mandatory


Dengue detection through IgM/IgG-class antibodies is the most commonly practiced diagnostic method. However, Dengue NS1 antigen test is also an equally valid dengue detection option. This test is used to diagnose early dengue infection, which is effective if detection is on day one. It’s important to note that NS1 is detectable before IgM antibodies appear because the presence of dengue NS1 antigen is consistent even with acute-phase dengue infection.
