Understanding TORCH 5 Panel (IgM) in Kolkata


What is TORCH 5 Panel (IgM) in Kolkata?

TORCH 5 Panel IgM is a panel of tests that screens for infectious diseases including Toxoplasmosis, Rubella, HSV-1, HSV-2, and Cytomegalovirus infection. These tests detect the presence of IgM antibodies produced by the body in response to these infections.

This test is ordered if you are exposed to certain infectious diseases or become ill while pregnant; or when the newborn shows any signs suggestive of such infections including mental retardation, deafness, heart defects, cataract, or jaundice.

Rubella Virus - IgM

The Rubella Virus - IgM test determines the presence of Immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies in the blood against Rubella virus. IgM antibodies are the first line of defense produced by the immune system in response to a recent infection. Therefore, this test is crucial for diagnosing acute or recent rubella infections. 

In acute primary infection during pregnancy, IgM may be detected 4-15 days after the rash appears. The IgM levels begin to decline after 36 -70 days and may last up to 180 days in some cases.

Toxoplasma gondii - IgM

A Toxoplasma gondii - IgM test measures the presence of IgM antibodies in the blood, indicating recent or acute infection with the Toxoplasma gondii parasite. These antibodies are part of the body’s immune response and are produced when an individual is exposed to the parasite. These antibodies are the first to appear after being exposed to the parasite and may persist for up to 18 months post-infection. This test provides valuable information about recent exposure to Toxoplasma gondii, helping in the diagnosis and management of infections, especially in cases where timely detection is crucial.

Herpes Simplex Virus 1 IgM

The Herpes Simplex Virus 1 IgM test detects the presence of IgM antibodies that are produced as a body's initial response to an HSV-1 infection. They are critical in the initial control of the virus. IgM antibodies may take up to 10 days to develop. Also, these antibodies are usually present in higher concentrations shortly after infection and eventually decrease after some time (7-10 days). Therefore, the presence of HSV-1 IgM antibodies is a strong indication of recent exposure and primary infection.

Early detection allows doctors to detect symptoms quickly and provide necessary medical interventions to individuals suffering from HSV infection, leading to better outcomes and improved quality of life.

Cytomegalovirus IgM Antibody

A Cytomegalovirus IgM Antibody test measures the presence of Immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies in the blood, specifically targeting the CMV. IgM antibodies are produced by the body first in response to a CMV infection. They can be detected in the blood within a week or two after the initial exposure. IgM levels rise for a short time, then decline and usually fall below detectable levels after a few months. IgM antibody levels rise again when latent CMV is reactivated.

Elevated levels of CMV IgM antibodies indicate an ongoing infection or recent exposure to the virus. Understanding the presence of IgM antibodies helps doctors diagnose and manage CMV infections effectively.

Herpes Simplex Virus 2 IgM

The Herpes Simplex Virus 2 IgM test detects the presence of IgM antibodies that are produced against an infection caused by herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2). IgM antibodies specific for HSV-2 are present only for a relatively short period of time. They are the first antibodies to form after the infection and are excellent markers for the presence of a recently acquired or active disease. Also, these antibodies are usually present in higher concentrations shortly after infection and eventually decrease after some time (7-10 days).
