Update on Ig test – 10/13
*HSV 2 IgG Type Specific Ab —1.60 index
*HSV2 IGG INHIBITION,ELISA
The HSV-2 IgG screening assay was repeated on adifferent platform as part of the inhibition test,and the result was negative; thus the Inhibition result
could not be determined.
This was also on the result:::
Most samples exhibiting this
type of discrepancy have initial HSV-2 IgG index values
of 1.10-3.00. If early HSV-2 infection is suspected,
submission of another sample collected 2-3 weeks after this sample is recommended.
This assay is intended only for samples giving a positive index in the HSV-2 type-specific IgGscreening assay. A POSITIVE inhibition
interpretation indicates true HSV-2 specific
reactivity, whereas a NEGATIVE inhibition
interpretation suggests that the positive
screening index is falsely positive.
Should I accept it or get western blot ?
