Measles Antibody (IgG), Immune Status

The Measles Antibody (IgG) Immune Status analyzes an individual’s immunity to the measles virus by measuring the presence and quantity of measles-specific IgG antibodies in their blood. By testing for the presence of specific antibodies, this test can determine whether a person has been previously vaccinated or has had a prior measles infection.

Key points about the Measles Antibody (IgG) Immune Status test:

  • The primary purpose of this test is to assess an individual’s immune status to measles. It helps healthcare providers determine if a person is immune to the virus.
  • The immune system produces Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies in response to measles vaccination or infection. Detecting IgG antibodies in the blood indicates prior exposure to the virus.
  • The test can confirm whether a person has successfully received the measles vaccination, which is crucial for individuals needing proof of vaccination for school, travel, or work.
  • Results of the test can help assess the strength and duration of immunity to measles.
  • Some countries or international travel destinations may require proof of measles immunity through testing or vaccination documentation.
  • Following exposure to a confirmed case of measles, this test can determine whether an individual is already immune to the virus or at risk of infection.
  • Based on test results, healthcare providers may recommend measles vaccination for individuals who lack immunity.

Please note that this test assesses measles immunity and not immunity to other diseases. Maintaining immunity through vaccination or prior infection is vital for public health and personal protection against the measles virus. This test contributes significantly to ensuring that individuals receive appropriate protection against this preventable disease.
