Understanding Varicella Zoster, IgG in Pune


What is Varicella Zoster, IgG in Pune?

The Varicella Zoster, IgG test looks for immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies against varicella-zoster virus (VZV) in the blood. This test helps detect if an individual has immunity to the virus, which causes chickenpox (Varicella) and shingles (Herpes Zoster), either from past infection or vaccination. 

What does Varicella Zoster, IgG measure?

The Varicella Zoster, IgG test measures the presence and levels of Immunoglobulin (IgG) antibodies specific to the Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) in the blood. IgG antibodies are produced by the immune system in response to an infection or vaccination. 

The Varicella Zoster, IgG test test helps determine if an individual has immunity against VZV, indicating either a past infection with chickenpox (Varicella) or vaccination against it. Presence of VZV IgG antibodies in the blood suggests that the immune system has encountered the virus and mounted a response, providing protection against future infections. It is particularly useful for identifying previous VZV infection, assessing the effectiveness of vaccination or determining the immunity status before pregnancy.
