Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate or Sed Rate or ESR is the hematological test which indicates the inflammation of a disease condition. As this test never specifies any disease, our study tries to check whether it can be used as a biomarker or not. A total 1290 (One thousand two hundred ninety) numbers of fever subjects from North Eastern states of India were enrolled for our study and out of which 227 (Two hundred twenty seven) numbers were showed elevated ESR. This 227 (Two hundred twenty seven) numbers subjects were tested for typhoid, dengue by serological tests and malaria by microscopy and checked the correlation-comparisons with ESR. Our study concludes that ESR may play an important role to suspect a subject for typhoid, dengue or malaria with comparisons its clinical condition.
