Influenza Virus Type B Ab Ig G Igm
My doctor tested me for coxsackie virus group b ab and it came back positive. How do I know if it is IgM or igg? It does not say.
Influenza is a viral respiratory infection that causes cough, fever, chills, sore throat, muscle aches and headache. While most healthy people suffer few complications from the flu, it can be deadly for pregnant women, babies and children, the elderly and those with weak immune systems. That's why it's so important to get the flu shot to protect yourself ...Read more
What does this mean? Hsv 1 Igg, Type Spec: <0.91 INDEX Herpes Simplex Virus I/ii Igm Hsv, Igm I/ii Comb
Can you tell me if an influenza virus encodes more than 1 hemagglutinin and/or neuraminidase (i.E: of different types) how would that virus be named?
Flu viruses: The study of influenza or 'the flu' can get very complicated quite quickly. These viruses consist of genetic elements that can 'mix and match' with other flu viruses (such as bird flu). So although generally each virus is only coding for one H and one N - they could shuffle things about with a different virus. We call this reassortment. The naming system is quite complex- and there are 18 Hs, 11Ns ...Read more
Confused by results bc had mono 15 yr ago..
Epstein barr VCA ab (igm) < or = 0.90 epstein virus VCA ab (igg) 3.51
epstein virus (ebna) ab (igg) >5.
Makes perfect sense: Igm antibodies rise only during the actual, acute infection. They then fade away and are replaced by the various igg antibodies, which are the ones that provide lifetime protection against the same strain of the virus. So your numbers are consistent with the fact you had mono years ago. There is no igm, and positive igg levels. So you are immune and do not currently have mono. ...Read more
Old or recent herpes infection? Herpes 6 ab panel blood results: herpes virus 6 igm neg:<1:10<1:10(my value) herpes virus 6 IgG pos<.99 mine 13.56
I don't get it: Herpes 6 is the roseola virus which infects nearly all of us since early childhood. There is speculation about some possible indirect relationship to multiple sclerosis. It is not an std! it is not the same as herpes simplex which is responsible for genital herpes or cold sores (hsv 2, hsv1). Why test for hsv6?. Acyclovir will yield no benefit for this unless you have a (rare) acute hh6 infe. ...Read more
I have rubelaa IgG positive 258 and IgM negative .33 and cytomegalo virus(cmv) IgG positive 91 and IgM negative 0.32.Can i plan a baby now?
After mosquito bites 2-3 weeks ago, I just had a test for West Nile Virus. IGG was negative (<1.30) and IGM was equivocal (0.99). What does that mean?
Repeat test: You may want to repeat the test to know if it really was West Nile. If, however, you feel well, you may decide you do not need to know as there is no specific treatment. The IgM usually turns positive first and then the IgG later. Your IgM may be either a false positive (IgM tests have a high rate of false positives in general) or it may have been on the way up. ...Read more

In 4 months period My HSV IgG has increased from 2.77 to 5.38 and IgM is .11 does that mean virus is gaining power and going to ruin my health.
NO: It simply means that your titer was higher the one time compared to the other. You may have it checked in 6 months and it is back down again. The number is not as important as positive or Negative with IGG, which simply means you had a history of HSV . The IGM would signify active infection. Your Health will not be ruined. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Acute vs. chronic: Igm antibodies appear after recent infection and then disappear. Igg antibodies come later and persist, indicating chronic or past infection. In the case of herpes, the IgM is not widely used, because acute herpes is typically diagnosed based on clinical appearance or culture results. A positive igg indicates the presence of herpes, which is a chronic recurring infection. ...Read more

Flu vaccine: The trivalent covers 2 a strains ; 1 b strain, the quadrivalent covers 2a and 2b strains, the second b strain causes milder disease in adults and mostly affects children.

Live or let die: This would be highly unusual since there are reserve system in the body to fight against virus. If you have absolutely no immune response, then you will have to wait till the virus dies out or kills you in the interim. However this scenario would be a highly unlikely one. ...Read more
