Rubella Testing Market: Overview
Rubella or German measles is a serious condition (disease) caused by the infection of rubivirus (genus). Sometimes rubella when passed from pregnant mother to her baby then it is termed as congenital rubella. Rubella is a contagious disease and can spread through air or close contact between patient and a healthy individual. Signs and symptom of rubella include fever, headache, inflammation of the eyes and muscle or joint pain.
Culture test (nasal or throat swab culture) and blood test to check the function of immune system are the major tests performed for the detection of rubella. Women who are pregnant must undergo rubella test to know the functioning of immune system against rubella virus. There remains chance of miscarriage or stillbirth for those pregnant mothers who are suffering from measles as the child may be born with birth defects.
Presently there is no treatment option available in the market for the treatment of rubella. Patients are prescribed acetaminophen for reduction of rubella fever. Rubella can be prevented with the utilization of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. Rubella vaccine is recommended for all children and is routinely given when children are 12 months to 15 months old. Almost everyone who receives the vaccine has immunity to rubella for his lifetime.
