HSV-1 IgM and HSV-1 IgG Immunoassay Test Kits

HSV-1 Rapid Test

Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 (HSV-1) IgM test kits and HSV-1 IgG test kits are two types of serum test devices, which are used to test IgM and IgG antibody specific to HSV-1. For the detection of these antibodies, three testing methods are available from Atlas Link Technology Co., Ltd, namely Lateral flow rapid test kits, Dot filtration Assay kits and ELISA kits. The first two testing methods are simple to use and no other equipment is needed to carry out the assay, so HSV-1 rapid test kit and HSV-1 Dot assay kits are suitable to be used as point-of-care test device; while the HSV-1 ELISA kits are usually used in laboratories by professionals. All the three methods are intended to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of the diseases of Herpes Simplex Type 1 virus. These two HSV-1 screening test are intended to screen the samples of the patient. For any positive testing result with any of rapid HSV-1 antibody test, more accurate test method is recommended before any clinical conclusion is made.

HSV-1 is the cause of most orofacial herpes and HSV encephalitis. The detection of HSV-1 IgM antibody enables effective diagnosis of acute or recent HSV-1 infection. HSV-1 serum testing is particularly useful for the follow-up of pregnant women, who were not previously exposed to HSV-1 and consequently are not protected against the virus. In addition, determination of specific IgM antibody in the newborn is useful for the diagnosis of congenital HSV-1 infection.

The presence of HSV-1 IgG antibody in serum is an indication of previous exposure. A significant increase in HSV IgG is an indication of reactivation, current or recent infection.

The Damages of Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1

Herpes simplex virus type 1 is one member of the herpes virus family, Herpesviridae to which human beings are the only natural host. HSV1 primarily infects mouth, throat, face, eye, and central nervous system. The HSV1 are ubiquitous and contagious. They can be spread when an infected person is producing and shedding the virus. HSV-1 is usually acquired orally during childhood, but may also be sexually transmitted. Once infected, currently there is no technology to clear the HSV-1 from the body. After several years, some patients will become perpetually asymptomatic and will no longer experience outbreaks.

The risk of transmission from mother to baby is the highest, especially if the mother becomes infected at around the time of delivery (30% to 60%), because there is insufficient time for the maternal body to secret and transfer antibodies before the delivery. But the risk falls to 3% if it is a recurrent infection, and is less than 1% if there are no visible lesions. Mothers infected with HSV1 are advised to avoid procedures that would cause trauma to the infant during birth, and when lesions present, to elect caesarean section to avoid exposing of the child to the infected secretions in the birth canal.

The main symptom of herpes simplex type 1 is watery blisters in the infected region. The symptoms of the primary infection of HSV1 are usually more severe, because there is no antibody in the human body at this stage. This first outbreak of oral herpes carries a low but serious risk (about 1%) of developing aseptic meningitis.
