EIAgen Cytomegalovirus IgM kit



brief description

The Cytomegalovirus is a DNA-Virus belonging to the Herpesviridae family, transmitted by close human contact. No symptoms of infection are apparent in the majority of cases. However, the virus is very dangerous and may be fatal in immunodepressed patients. Serum-negative female patients who become infected during pregnancy may transmit the disease to the fetus. In 95% of cases this occurs without symptoms, but some neonates may present jaundice, hepato-splenomegaly and retarded psycho-motorial development. For this reason it is of great importance to determine the immunitary state of the patient and check for serum conversion

intended use
