HSV TYPE 1-SPECIFIC AB, IGG

Test ID: 

706228

CPT code:

86695

Synonyms:

Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) Type 1-Specific Antibodies, IgG

Clinical Use:

Qualititative detection of IgG antibodies specific to HSV type 1 infection; confirm or rule out possible infection with herpes simplex type 1 virus in prenatal patients. In a patient with no history of lesion disease, a positive result for this test may be indicative that the primary infection was asymptomatic. Once infected by HSV, it is possible for a patient to shed virus without the development of lesions (asymptomatic shedding). This test does not indicate the site of HSV infection. The magnitude of the Index Value is not indicative of the amount of antibody present in the patient sample.

Test Information:

There is a considerable homology between HSV-1 and HSV-2 antigens, so that antibodies formed against either virus are highly cross-reactive. This assay is based on purified recombinant glycoprotein G-1 and is specific for type 1 antibodies. Moreover, this assay is highly sensitive and specific and will not detect antibodies to HSV-2.Test is set up and reported Monday through Friday.
