Yes: The baby will unlikely be affected by the Herpes Type I infection your sister has now. Many people are exposed and have herpetic lesions on the mouth and lips. The greatest risk of newborn HSV infection is transmitting the virus through the birth canal when the mother has genital HSV. The risk is lower prior to delivery. ...Read more

Higher future risk: The cause of an elevated aCL without other diseases is unknown. That said, 50% of people with + lupus anticoagulant have or will have SLE. Presumably, manifestations require the aCL plus another problem - infection, one of a number of drugs, pregnancy, BC pills, etc. The significance is the higher than normal risk in the face of future immunological injury ...Read more

Please tell me, could a person with a myelin associated glycoprotein antibody, IgM have multiple sclerosis?

Please tell me, could a person with a myelin associated glycoprotein antibody, IgM have multiple sclerosis?

Possible comorbidity: The mag levels do not help confirm multiple sclerosis or even seem to correlate with this disorder, and typically, point toward problems with the peripheral nervous system. You could have ms and another condition, and a neurologist might help with both. Suggest you discuss your test and seek correlations if any. ...Read more

Do you rule out aps if anticardiolipin antibody and beta 2 glycoprotein (both IgG and igm) are often elevated but in borderline and weakly positive range?

Do you rule out aps if anticardiolipin antibody and beta 2 glycoprotein (both IgG and igm) are often elevated but in borderline and weakly positive range?

See below: There are certain criteria that must be met in order for one to have aps. One of which is that one must have some type of thrombotic event. Antibodies alone do not make the diagnosis. Without knowing full details regarding your case, it is difficult to say whether you do or not. ...Read more

What is the test result range for both negative & positive for HSV antibodies IgM & igg? Ex. <0.9 ... Etc

Differs by lab: What you are asking is for the normal "reference ranges" for these tests.

You would need to ask for the range at the lab where the tests were run. ...Read more

Recent bloodwork showed an IgM level less than 5 mg/dl. Other antibodies are normal. I do not have a spleen. Could this be the reason?

Unlikely: I find your situation interesting - both are immunologic issues. But, not having a spleen would not drop your igm levels. An isolated deficiency of igm (absence of igm) is rare. Usually it is not a problem. It might be related to your gastrointestinal issues. ...Read more

OspA (outer-surface protein A) is specific to Borrelia ONLY.  I have IgM antibodies to OspA and to no other bands.  What's going on here?

Serotype to other +?: OspA serotypes 3–6. Phase I/II studies with the multivalent vaccine have been initiated in humans to determine the optimal dose, formulation, and booster interval in Borrelia seronegative as well as Borrelia seropositive individuals. American patients with Lyme arthritis commonly had antibody responses to OspA, BicA, and OspD. I am not clear as to what may cross react with other substances +? ...Read more

IS THERE`S A PRESENT INFECTIOUS ? MY EBV ANTIBODY PANEL: VCA - IGM 43 VCA - IGG 1041 EA - IGG 295 EBNA - IGG 133

Yes, it is recent.: Presence of IGM indicates a recent infection. This type of antibody is released early as this carries five times the blocking sites compared to other antibodies. Presence of IGM thus suggests an ongoing attempt by our immune system to fight a current infection. ...Read more
