Coxsackie Virus (A7, 9, 16 & 24) Antibodies, IgG, Serum


Reference Range

Coxsackie virus is a member of the Picornaviridae family of viruses, which can be separated into two groups, A and B, and each group has different serotypes. Infection is usually spread by fecal-oral contamination. Type A viruses usually cause hand-foot-and-mouth disease, acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis (A24), herpangina (mainly A16), and aseptic meningitis. The presence of anti-coxsackie virus antibodies indicates past or recent infection. RISING IgG levels is suggestive of current infection with the virus.

Special Requirements

Serum should be collected at onset of disease and then 2-4 weeks later to determine acute and convalescent titres.
