HSV 1 positive through blood test =[LIAISON assay using chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA) tech.] Index=1.47, how likely is it false positive?
Radioactivity: The farr assay is a radioimmunologic assay. It uses radiolabeled antigens to detect specific antibodies in serum. The antigens are allowed to react with the serum and then precipitated using a special reagent such as protein a sepharose beads. The bound radiolabeled immunoprecipitiate is commonly analzyed by gel electrophoresis. ...Read more

LDH Isoenzymes lab test results:
LDH total- 153. LD1- 32, LD2-30, LD3, 20, LD4- 8, LD5- 10. Are these results normal? Is the LD1&LD2 ratio abnormal?
Historic test: Matthew, the LDH isoenzyme test is ancient history, almost never ordered nowadays. And your LDH is normal. The old 1-2 ratio is an antique screen for a heart attack, and it's neither sensitive nor specific. I know you're obsessing over the idea that you have lymphoma, and a few websites suggest this as a screening test -- but it's not. Focus on building a life for yourself. ...Read more

Male 57, hepatitis C antibody result says reactive 14 with cutoff of 1 . Test performed byy ECLIA . How much chance of false positive. Prognosis?
Check viral load: Even when people have high titer hepatitis c antibody responses, some do not have active infection because their immune system cleared their virus on their own. So the first step is to check a hcv viral load (rna). If the virus is detected in the blood then you do have active infection. At that point you need testing to see how much liver scarring (fibrosis) you have. Work with a specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
