Venom IgG Reference Values: 1.0 – 3.5 mcg/mL Low venom IgG indicating a significant reaction risk. 3.5 – 6.0 mcg/mL Moderate level of venom IgG that may be associated from serious sting reactions (J.Clin.Immun.6:172, 1983) > 6.0 mcg/mL Elevated venom IgG usually associated with protection from serious sting reactions (J.Clin.Immun.6:172, 1983) The interpretative guidelines have been adapted from Golden et al (JACI 1992; 90:386-393). The test method used is the Phadia ImmunoCAP IgG assay which has been recalibrated to correlate with the venom IgG assay referenced above.
