Yellow Fever Antibodies

About this test

Yellow fever is a potentially fatal viral infection that's transmitted by mosquitoes in tropical regions.

The species of mosquito that is responsible for spreading yellow fever is Aedes Aegypti and is a different species from the anopheles mosquito that transmits malaria.

Most yellow fever infections are mild and go unrecognised, but severe and life threatening illness is not uncommon. After an incubation period of about three to six days fever, headache, abdominal pain and vomiting develop. After a brief recovery period, shock, bleeding and signs of liver and kidney failure develop. Liver failure is associated with jaundice hence the name yellow fever.

Yellow fever is one of the few arboviruses for which a vaccination is available. A single injection of a live, weakened virus stimulates the body's immune defences and confers effective immunity for ten years.
