The CMV antigen is designed by the extraction process to perform best in either an IgG or an IgM solid phase immunoassay but can be used for both IgG and IgM depending on the application.
|Background||Cytomegalovirus (CMV) antigen is considered one of the most common viral infections in man. The virus rarely causes disease, but may persist as a latent or chronic infection of the salivary glands, renal tubules, cervix and leukocytes. CMV infections are frequent and occasionally severe in children or adults with congenital or acquired defects of cellular immunity, such as patients with AIDS, cancer and recipients of organ transplants. The transmission of CMV via transfused blood may account for the majority of the CMV infections in organ transplant recipients, neonates and heart surgery patients. Medical conditions resulting from Cytomegalovirus infections include: interstitial pneumonia, mononucleosis (heterophile negative), congenital defects, abortion, mental retardation, blindness and deafness.|
