According to a Yahoo! Health article (http://health.yahoo.com/infectiousdisease-diagnosis/rubella-test/healthwise--hw5576.html): A rubella blood test detects antibodies that are made by the immune system to help kill the rubella virus. These antibodies remain in the bloodstream for years. The presence of certain antibodies indicates a recent infection, a past infection, or that you have been vaccinated against the disease. The presence of IgM antibodies means you have a current or recent rubella infection. The presence of IgG antibodies means…
Yes, the rubella test (igg) should be positive during pregnancy, which means that you have taken the vaccination prior. Negative result (igg) doesn't mean that you are infected with rubella, however this means that you doesn't have Rubella antibodies in your blood stream. If your result comes out negative, then you should perform another test for Rubella igm, positive results will confirm your infection with this virus.
Rubella (German measles) is a mild, three day infection that seldom leads to complications in children. However, rubella may cause birth deformities in babies born to mothers who are infected during pregnancy. Measles (rubeola) is a serious disease and is sometimes called "hard," "red," or "seven day measles." Individuals infected with measles frequently suffer from ear infections and/or pneumonia.
You are pregnant and had a blood test which came back positive with rubeola antibodies what does this mean?
Typically a pregnant woman gets tested for immunity to rubella (rubella IgG antibodies), and a positive test means she has adequate protection against rubella, which can cause birth defects. In contrast, you report a gest for rubeola antibodies. In order to interpret the test, more information is needed regarding the type of test done (IgM versus IgG). Please check with your health care provider for information specific to your situation.
This means the person has had rubella (German measles ) or a vaccination for rubella in the past and so is now immune. This test is often part of checks before pregnancy so that a vaccine can be given if it negative before a woman becomes pregnant. The vaccine is usually the MMR (which also immunises for mumps and measles). Single vaccine rubella is no longer licenced in the UK.
STORCH appears to be another acronym for TORCH. The TORCH test is a blood test that checks for several different diseases that could potentially be passed from mother to fetus. The test checks for: toxoplasmosis, other infections, rubella, cytomegalovirus (CMV), and herpes simplex virus (HSV). The "other infections" usually include syphilis, hepatitis B, coxsackie virus, Epstein-Barr virus, varicella-zoster virus, and human parvovirus. The Storch test is a test used in the dairy industry to test…
Girls need protection against rubella in case of pregnancy. If a pregnant women should get rubella it will cause teratogenic to the unborn baby. Those can be eye, ear, heart and brain teratogenic. Mostly this will happen during the first thre months of pregnancy. In case of pregnancy the doctors in Germany make a blood test to find out if the women has immunisation against rubella.
To determine a pregnancy a serum hCG level is taken. There are many tests a doctor may run on a pregnant woman; blood typing, Rh factor, glucose, iron and hemoglobin levels. A blood test is also used to assess whether you are immune to rubella, to see if you have a sexually transmitted disease, or to see if you have a toxoplasmosis infection.
It is a tricky question. Who made the diagnosis of German Measles? Rash is a rash. The presentation of other viral rash can confuse even an astute clinician. That being so, clinical diagnosis of Rubella is unreliable. Only serological test can establish a diagnosis of past infection. Once a person is serologically proven to have had a past infection or immunity from vaccine, one could reasonably be certain that that person is immune and would…
A normal blood test will not detect the infection. To diagnose chlamydia, you need a urine test or swab of the vagina, urethra, rectum, throat, or eye. Blood tests can look for evidence of past infection with chlamydia, but these are of no use in determining current infection and aren't used to diagnose or treat disease.
