I’ll use my final question to make sure I’m explaining my question right because I think we are saying different things:
What I thought:
ELISA iGG At 4 months is about 96% sensitive and will only miss 4% of positives
About 6-8% of ELISA IGG are positives, with about half being false positives
Of the people who get a low positive and then take the Western Blot, about 20% of those people will get indeterminate Western Blot
What I think you are saying:
ELISA IGG is 92% sensitive at 4 months
8% of Western blots come back indeterminate
Please let me know what is correct in the above !
Thank you very much for your time
If that’s cleared up that’s my final question !
