I'm sorry, I can't: offer more help on this question since you don't include what ? virus the IgG/IgM titers were measuring. Perhaps herpes? The presence of IgM antibodies typically indicate recent infection. Please ask the clinician who ordered these tests for you to explain them to you fully. Good wishes:)
