Human Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2 (HSV-2) IgM ELISA KitThe HSV-2 IgM ELISA is intended for the detection of IgM antibodies to herpes simplex virus HSV-2. Herpes Simplex Virus is a common pathogen and its primary infection is usually asymptomatic. There are two immunologically distinct types of HSV: Type 1 and Type 2. HSV-1 is generally associated with oral infection and lesions above the waist, and HSV-2 is associated with genital infections and lesions below the waist. Clinical cases primarily are eczema herpeticum with eczematous skin changes with numerous lesions, gingivo-stomatitis, and herpes sepsis, almost only found in premature newborn infants. The HSV-2 IgM ELISA is an accurate serologic method to detect HSV-2 IgM specific-antibody in serum samples.
