Cysticercosis Antibodies (CSF) IgG Test

Cysticercosis Antibodies (CSF) IgG Test

also known as: Cysticercosis Antibodies

Cysticercosis antibodies (CSF) test is carried out to analyze the nervous system of a patient. When the patient is infected by the larval stage of pork tapeworm known as (Taenia solium) in clinical terms it causes neurocysticercosis. Major symptoms of this disease are epileptic seizures and convulsions. Treatments in the form of surgery, steroids and anti-parasite medicines are available for the disease. The disease is majorly found in countries where pigs are raised as a food source. The ELISA is a rapid test used for detecting and quantifying antibodies or antigens present in the brain of the patient.

No special preparations are required for this test. It is advised to wear a sleeveless shirt or loose fit full sleeve shirt which can be folded during the blood test.

Presence of antigen or the presence of antibody in a sample can be evaluated. Determination of serum antibody concentrations in a virus test.

A band is wrapped around the arm, preferably near the elbow pit such that vein is clearly seen The area is cleaned with 70% alcohol The needle is inserted into the visible vein causing a small prick and the required amount of blood sample is collected The collected blood is transferred into the blood container from the nozzle and the syringe is hygienically disposed immediately

All positive serology samples should be confirmed using a more specific test method, such as the immunoblot or other nonserological methods (CDC), due to the cross-reactivity encountered with Echinococcus.
