Test ID: FCANA    
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

 

Interpretive Criteria:  

                   <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.
