Candida albicans Antibodies (IgG, IgA, IgM)
Reference Values Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.
Reference Range: <1.0
<1.0 Antibody not detected
> or = 1.0 Antibody detected
Systemic candidiasis is often characterized by markedly
elevated levels of IgG, IgA, and IgM recognizing Candida.
However, interpretation of Candida antibody levels
is complicated by detection of antibodies in 20-30% of healthy
individuals, and blunted antibody responses in immuno-
compromised patients at risk for systemic candidiasis. Candida
antibody results should be considered within the context of clinical
findings and results from other relevant laboratory tests, such as
Candida antigen detection and/or culture.
