The ns1 antigen test Kirby Place is used to identify the non-structural protein NS1 produced by the dengue virus. During a dengue fever infection, the body releases this protein into the blood. Serum NS1 assays have been developed. Antibodies specific for dengue NS1 protein are used in most of these assays and are typically fluorescently tagged in a lab. In the early stages of dengue infection, ns1 antigen Kirby Place can be detected. After the first seven days of symptoms, NS1 testing may be just as sensitive as molecular tests. They are not advised for NS1 testing beyond day 7. Dengue infection occurs if the dengue ns1 antigen Kirby Place comes back positive but the test does not reveal the serotype. Researchers have detected dengue ns1 Kirby Place in plasma and whole blood. However, most NS1 tests have only been tested on serum
Dengue virus IgM antibodies are detectable beginning 4- 5 days after the onset of symptoms and can be reliably detected for around 12 weeks while the immune system battles the illness
The anti-Dengue NS1 antibody is immobilized in the test line as part of this evaluation method. Blood samples (serum, whole blood, or plasma) in the specimen well react with particles coated with anti-Dengue NS1 antibody.
Treatment focuses primarily on ensuring the patient drinks enough fluids. Fever can be treated with acetaminophen (paracetamol). A full recovery is expected in about two weeks if the symptoms are effectively managed
