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:            <1:8  Antibody not detected

 

INTERPRETIVE CRITERIA: <1:8  Antibody not detected

                                                > or = 1:8  Antibody detected

    

Titers > or = 1:8 suggest either gonococcal infection or asymptomatic colonization.  Antibodies recognizing Neisseria gonorrhoeae are apparently unprotective, since reinfection frequently occurs.
