Coxsackie Antibody IgM Test

The Coxsackie Antibody IgM test is utilized to identify an active or recent infection with the Coxsackie virus by measuring the levels of IgM antibodies in the blood. Coxsackie viruses belong to the enterovirus family, and they are known for causing several diseases, including Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease, viral meningitis, and myocarditis. IgM antibodies are usually the first antibodies to be produced by the immune system in response to an infection. The detection of IgM antibodies against the Coxsackie virus generally indicates a current or recent infection.
