Coxsackie Antibody IgG Test

The Coxsackie Antibody IgG test is a diagnostic tool that measures the level of IgG antibodies against the Coxsackie virus in the blood. The Coxsackie virus is part of the enterovirus family, which includes viruses that can affect the gastrointestinal system, heart, and other organs. The virus is commonly known for causing Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease, especially in children, but it can cause a wide range of other illnesses and symptoms. The presence of IgG antibodies typically indicates a past infection with Coxsackie virus, as these antibodies usually develop later in the course of infection and can remain in the blood for an extended period.
