Mycoplasma pneumoniae IgG
To detect chronic infection caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae or previous contact with the causative agent. Mycoplasma pneumoniae IgG titre rises later, after 3-4 weeks.
The IgG antibody test against Mycoplasma pneumoniae is used to detect mycoplasma infection. IgG antibody titres rise after 3-4 weeks. from the start of infection. During an acute infection, antibody levels exceed the normal range by 4-5 times. IgG antibodies are reduced after infection, but can still be detected in serum for several years.
To diagnose and confirm a mycoplasma infection, the test should be repeated after 2-3 weeks. since the first test to assess antibody dynamics and changes in the body.
Mycoplasma pneumoniae is an airborne droplet that infects the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract. These infections can cause pharyngitis, laryngitis and sinusitis. A dry, persistent cough is the most common symptom of these infections. Not everyone with mycoplasma and chlamydia in their nasopharynx will get sick – it depends on the body’s resistance – but they can infect others.
Antibodies in the blood appear later than IgM antibodies, 3-4 weeks after infection. Mycoplasma pneumoniae IgG antibodies are produced in the event of a re-infection.
