LIAISON® VZV IgM
LIAISON® VZV IgM is a CLIA assay for the qualitative determination of specific IgM antibodies to varicella-zoster virus (VZV) in human serum or plasma samples.
LIAISON® VZV IgG
LIAISON® VZV IgG is a CLIA assay for the quantitative determination of specific IgG antibodies to varicella-zoster virus (VZV) in human serum or plasma samples.
Varicella (chicken pox) is an acute, highly contagious viral disease with worldwide distribution and seasonal prevalence in winter and spring. It is characterized by generalized vesicular exanthema often accompanied by fever. Following a primary infection, the virus remains latent in the neural ganglia, and upon subsequent reactivation VZV may cause zoster (shingles), a disease mainly affecting elderly and immunocompromised individuals.
Diagnostic evaluation of VZV infection may be considered to check the immune status and/or identify an active infection, when the individual has atypical and/or severe symptoms and the physician wishes to distinguish between VZV infection and other causes.
Diagnostic testing may also be performed prior to organ transplantation or when a child, pregnant woman or immunocompromised individual has been exposed to a patient with chickenpox.
