Understanding Cytomegalovirus IgG Antibody in Ghaziabad


What is Cytomegalovirus IgG Antibody in Ghaziabad?

A Cytomegalovirus IgG Antibody is a blood test that helps to detect the presence of specific antibodies immunoglobulin G (IgG) produced by the body in response to Cytomegalovirus (CMV). This test helps determine if an individual has been previously exposed to the CMV virus indicating a past infection. 

What does Cytomegalovirus IgG Antibody measure?

A Cytomegalovirus IgG Antibody test measures the presence of IgG antibodies in the blood, indicating a previous CMV infection. IgG antibodies are produced several weeks after the initial CMV infection. IgG levels rise during the active infection, then stabilize as the CMV infection resolves and the virus becomes inactive. Once exposed to CMV, you will have some measurable amount of CMV IgG antibody in your blood for the rest of your life, which provides protection from getting another primary infection (immunity). However, if you have a weak immune system, the virus can reactivate and cause serious symptoms or organ damage.
