Measles IgG Antibody

Measles, a paramyxovirus causes a very contagious respiratory infection which can have severe consequences, particularly in adults. The screening for pregnant women, young adults and other high risk patients for circulating antibodies is important in determining the immune status.

Measles has been largely eliminated in recent years as a major childhood disease, thanks to immunization. However, as a result of vaccination failure or subjects who have not been vaccinated, there has been a shifting tendency for young adults to become infected.
