Rubella IgG: A level of Rubella antibody of 10 IU/ml or more indicates immunity to Rubella. Ask what the reference range is for your test. A positive IgG result indicates immunity either from vaccination or past infection, and having immunity to Rubella is what we like to see in all pregnant women. ...Read more

Yes: The presence of IgG usually indicates past infection which might have occurred months or even years ago. The presence of IgM indicates a current or recent infection. ...Read more

I had HIV EIA (enzyme immunoassay) testing done and it has been non-reactive. What else could be causing the P41 Band (IgG & IgM) to be positive?

Cross-reactivity: Your body antibodies to a protein that shares some structure with p41. This is the reason to look for antibodies to multiple HIV proteins, rather than relying on one. Antibodies do cross-react with proteins similar to the one that elicited the antibody. ...Read more

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

Please i would like to know if schistosoma ab IgG test detects every type of schistosoma ?

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
