Chikungunya Antibody IgM

Chikungunya Antibody IgM

The Chikungunya IgM test detects IgM antibodies produced in response to chikungunya virus infection as soon as possible. IgM antibodies indicate a recent infection (less than five days). Chikungunya is a virus spread by mosquitos. Infected mosquitoes spread the Chikungunya virus. The virus can spread by mosquito bites, maternal-fetal transmission, and organ transplantation.
