Herpes test

Aug 12, 2018

Recently I got tested for herpes and got the report as Anti HSV II - IgG Antibodies : Positive (99.44) Method : Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) What does this mean and how to reduce that 99:44 to 16ru/ml.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't provide any clinical context for why this test was obtained, or whether other tests for herpes infection were obtained. The test indicates past exposure to herpes simplex type II virus. Since this is any antibody test, there is no way to reduce the level.

IU/mL HepaB virus (1 IU =5.6 copies)
