What is the Difference between IgG and IgM in Chikungunya Antibody Test?

The basic functioning of the immunology is that when someone is infected by the Chikungunya virus then the antibodies present in the person’s body attack and prevent the virus from affecting your bodily organs. Serology to detect the Chikungunya virus in the person’s body is conducted only five days after symptoms onset. Initially, it is the Immunoglobulin M i.e. IgM which expands to fight the virus and followed by the reduction in viremia, it starts to disappear by day 4 of symptoms onset.

However, gradually IgM acts in coordination with Immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgG responds later to IgM. Thus, in a healthy human body, the IgM levels rise before the IgG levels and this very initial reaction of IgM enables the detection of the infection at an early stage. So, it is usually IgM that the medical professionals refer to not only to detect the disease but also to check the survival of the same in the body.

The expansion of IgG only takes place once the level of IgM slows down, and the levels of IgG are analyzed to find the capacity of the patient’s immunity and the efficiency of the immune response. Moreover, IgG is the antibody which lasts longer than IgM and can detect the history of infections a patient has gone through, along with their status of recovery from the same. Hence, to identify the immunity to a virus or disease, the presence of Immunoglobulin G in the human system is checked.
