My ccp ab, IgG was 221 what would be the safest treatment to go on? Will it bring that number down?
It depends on other: It depends on other tests and your exam. The ccp antibody is seen with rheumatoid. Your rheumatologist will interpret this in conjunction with lab findings. Also your x-rays will determine what medication you will go on as well your medical history. The number that we would want to reduce instead of the ccp is any elevated levels of inflammation such sed rate and crp. Hope that helps. ...Read more

No antibodies: If you have not received the pneumococcal vaccine then you have probably not been infected with any of these strains of pneumococcus, a gram positive bacteria that causes pneumonia, sinus & ear infections & meningitis.

See your immunologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No test is perfect: H.pylori is a organism that promotes ulcers. Your negative serum test implies an absence of protective antibodies, presumably due to lack of exposure or infection. Of course, a "false negative" result occurs with all testing. There are many ways to test for H.pylori so if you have risk factors, exposures, or high suspicion of infection get a confirmatory study. ...Read more

How long could the IgG in Lyme disease stay positive?Could it stay positive more than 5-10 years? I know the IgM ab convert to IgG just want an answer
Yes,positive 20+ yrs: Research suggests igg antibodies can persist at least 20 years after infection. While igm antibodies appear first, unlike other infections they often persist ; are a good indicator of persistent infection. One may have chronic lyme with or without persistence of igg antibodies. Chronic lyme is difficult to fully eradicate ; no current test proves that it is no longer present in your body! ...Read more

Neg;might have Lyme: This is a negative result but does not mean you don't have Lyme. The type of test you had will be negative in at least half of those who have Lyme. I advise you get a Western Blot from IgeneX but even that may be negative in 20% of those with Lyme. See http://www.betterhealthguy.com/lyme/testing for more info. ...Read more

Mostly, yes.: This flourescent microscopy assay uses the microsomal fraction of adult s. Mansoni worms (mama) as antigen, and is thus highly specific (99%) and sensitive (96%) for detection of infection caused by s. Mansoni. Although the assay is also highly specific for infections caused by other schistosoma species (s. Japonicum, s. Haematobium, s. Mekongi), its sensitivity for these infections is lower (55%). ...Read more
