    The Dengue NS1 Antigen - ELISA (Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) test helps to detect the dengue virus in the blood. This test examines the presence of the dengue NS1 antigen, which is a protein produced by the dengue virus. 

    The dengue virus is transmitted from an infected mosquito to a human. It is spread by female mosquitoes, mainly Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus species, which are found across the world's tropical and subtropical regions.

    Dengue fever takes 3 to 7 days to manifest its symptoms. Headache, nausea, rash, swollen glands, body aches, muscle pains and vomiting are some of the common symptoms of dengue. Elderly patients with medical conditions are more likely to develop severe dengue. 

    The Dengue NS1 Antigen – ELISA test is done:

    • To diagnose dengue virus infection at an early stage.
    • In cases of initial treatment of dengue virus infection.
    • For differential diagnosis of flaviviruses and fever.
