What Is Cytomegalo Virus(CMV)- IgG Test?
- Cytomegalovirus(CMV) is a common virus that exists widely throughout the population but rarely causes symptoms.
- Most people get affected as children or as young adults and don’t face any specific symptoms or health issues.
- CMV testing involves either an assessment of CMV antibodies, immune proteins produced in response to CMV exposure, or the detection of the CMV virus. This virus can be identified during an active infection by culturing CMV or by detecting the virus’s genetic material in a fluid or tissue sample.
- CMV is present in many body fluids during an active infection, which includes urine, saliva, blood, cerebrospinal fluid, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk.
- It is easily transferred to others through close physical contact or by contact with infected objects, like diapers or toys.
- The Cytomegalovirus remains in a person for the rest of life without causing any signs unless the person’s immune system is significantly weakened. If this happens, the virus may reactivate.
How Is CMV-IgG Test Used?
- The Cytomegalovirus (CMV) test is used to conclude whether someone with signs and symptoms has an active CMV infection. Sometimes it may also be suggested to help determine whether someone had a prior CMV infection.
- CMV is a common virus that generally occurs throughout the population but rarely causes noticeable signs or symptoms or significant health disorders.
- In some cases, primary CMV infection may cause severe illness and complexities in infants and people with weak immune systems, such as transplant recipients, cancer patients, and people with HIV.
