The Mumps IgG & IgM (ELISA) is a diagnostic test that facilitates detection and quantitative determination of Immunoglobulin G and M antibodies to the Mumps virus in human blood. The igm elisa test helps in confirming the diagnosis of mumps and differentiating between an acute infection and past exposure to the virus. Mumps is a viral infection caused by a paramyxovirus, which is a member of the Rubulavirus family. Mumps affects the salivary glands, and the infection spreads through infected saliva. This Mumps IgG & IgM (ELISA) panel measures the levels of both Immunoglobulin G and Immunoglobulin M antibodies.

Some infected people experience no symptoms. However, in general, the symptoms of mumps include:

  • Swelling and tenderness of the salivary glands, usually on one or both sides of the face
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Painful or difficult swallowing
  • Pain in the abdomen, muscles, neck, pelvis, or testicles
  • Dry mouth
  • Hearing loss

A blood sample is collected from the patient for the igm elisa test. The healthcare professional will clean the area with an antiseptic, usually on the inner elbow or back of the hand. A needle is then inserted into a vein, and blood is drawn into a tube. The collected sample is sent to the laboratory for analysis.

The Mumps IgG & IgM (ELISA) panel is performed using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) method. In this method, the patient's blood sample is mixed with specific antigens for mumps. If antibodies against mumps are present in the blood, they will bind to these antigens. Enzyme-labeled antibodies are then added, which will bind to the bound mumps antibodies. A colour change is observed if the test is positive, indicating the presence of mumps antibodies.

There is no specific treatment for mumps. However, supportive care can help relieve symptoms and manage complications. This may include resting, drinking fluids to prevent dehydration, and taking over-the-counter pain relievers for pain and fever. In severe cases or in the case of complications, hospitalisation may be required. The healthcare provider may prescribe nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and analgesics to relieve pain, decrease inflammation, or reduce fever.

If you're looking for a safe and effective way of getting tested for mumps, booking the panel on Apollo 24|7 is a great choice. The benefits of an early diagnosis include the following:

1. Accurate results: The Mumps IgG & IgM (ELISA) Panel provides accurate results in detecting mumps antibodies, aiding in proper diagnosis and appropriate management.

2. Early intervention: Early diagnosis helps in initiating necessary measures and preventing the spread of the infection to other people.

3. Preventing complications: Identifying mumps early allows for timely intervention, reducing the risk of potential complications such as orchitis (inflammation of the testicles), meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord), or deafness.

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Mumps is a viral infection that primarily affects the salivary glands, leading to swelling and tenderness.
Mumps is highly contagious and spreads through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
Mumps symptoms usually appear 16-18 days after exposure, but it can range from 12-25 days.
It is rare but possible to get mumps more than once. However, having mumps once usually provides the person with lifelong immunity.
Differentiating between Immunoglobulin G and M antibodies helps determine if the infection is recent (IgM positive) or occurred in the past (IgG positive). It provides valuable information for proper diagnosis and management of the disease.
