Mumps virus antibodies (IgG, IgM)
Mumps is a contagious disease that usually begins with flulike symptoms. The best-known symptom of the disease is swollen salivary glands. This causes painful swelling between the ear and jaw. But this swelling doesn’t occur in everyone with the mumps. Some people have no symptoms at all.
When you have the mumps, your immune system makes antibodies to fight the virus. These are called mumps IgM and IgG antibodies. You will also develop mumps antibodies after the mumps vaccine.
