What is the difference between IgM and IgG antibodies?
With any antigen (foreign particle) invasion, IgM is the first antibody to be produced. IgM is the largest immunoglobulin in the body and IgG is the most abundantly found antibody.
In simpler terms, if a virus is present in the body, IgM will be the first antibody produced, followed by IgG. IgG will also remain longer and will act as an indicator that the body has produced some degree of immunity.
