Information

The test can identify ongoing TBE infection after a tick bite and/or if you have developed immunity after vaccination.

Blood test to see if you have TBE

In an acute TBE infection (Tick-borne encephalitis), IgM antibodies are formed against the TBE virus, which can be detected via blood tests in the early stages of the disease. The test involves the analysis of IgM antibodies to assess the presence of an ongoing infection

Check of vaccination for TBE

Find out if your TBE vaccination is effective. To determine whether you have developed immunity to the TBE virus through either previous infection or vaccination, IgG antibodies are also analyzed

NOTE! TBE infection is, according to the Infection Control Act, a notifiable disease. In case of any occurrence, we will report to

How does the TBE vaccine work?

Approximately 90 percent of those vaccinated against TBE develop protective antibodies already two weeks after the second vaccine dose. After two doses, the vaccine is considered to provide sufficient protection for a year. After three doses according to the normal schedule, almost 100 percent of those vaccinated have protection for at least three years. By testing your TBE antibodies, you get an estimate of your immunity.

How common is TBE?

Annually, between 200-500 cases of TBE are reported in Sweden. There is also likely to be an underreporting, that is, cases that are never reported, likely due to mild or no symptoms. Almost all of the reported cases are believed to have had neurological infections, as people with flu-like symptoms rarely seek medical attention or are tested for TBE.

The number of TBE cases has increased steadily in recent decades, an increase likely due to several factors, including increased prevalence of infected ticks and hosts, longer growing seasons and weather conditions. It is difficult to make forecasts for the future because of the many variables that affect the epidemiology of the disease.

Do you suspect TBE?

If TBE is suspected, you can test your antibodies. The diagnosis is made by detecting both TBE virus IgM and IgG from a blood sample. In case of symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, confusion and sometimes even convulsions, you should seek medical attention immediately.

Antibodies are part of the body's immune system.

TBE IgG antibodies
Tick-Borne Encephalitis (TBE) is a potentially severe viral disease transmitted by ticks, which can lead to neurological complications. To comprehend and diagnose this illness, IgG antibodies play a central role, as the body produces them in response to the TBE virus.

TBE IgM antibodies
Tick-Borne Encephalitis (TBE) poses a serious health threat transmitted by ticks, and to comprehend the early stage of this viral disease, the analysis of IgM antibodies is crucial. IgM antibodies, or Immunoglobulin M, represent the body's first line of defense against the TBE virus.
