    Filaria is a parasitic infection caused by filarial worms and transmitted to humans through mosquito bites. The condition is found in tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, Asia, and the Americas. The Filaria Antibody Panel detects the presence of antibodies IgG and IgM against the filarial worm in the bloodstream. This lab test is crucial in detecting and treating filarial infections at an early stage.

    Symptoms of Filaria Infection

    - Swelling of the legs, arms, or genitals
    - Fatigue
    - Skin rash
    - Fever
    - Lymph node swelling
    - Joint pain

    Test Procedure

    The Filaria Antibody test is a simple blood test that requires a small sample of blood. The sample is obtained from a vein in the arm. The procedure is quick and painless, with minimal discomfort.

    The laboratory analyses the blood sample for antibodies IgG and IgM. If detected, this indicates that the individual has been exposed to filarial worms at some point. The test results are shared within 48 hours after sample collection.

    Treatment for Positive Results

    If a person tests positive for filaria antibodies, further clinical examination by a healthcare provider is necessary to determine treatment options. Treatment for filaria depends on the stage of infection, with early detection being vital. Early treatment can prevent serious complications such as lymphedema and elephantiasis.
