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.




INTERPRETIVE CRITERIA for Coxsackie A, B and Echovirus:


                  <1:8  Antibody Not Detected

          > or = 1:8  Antibody Detected


Single titers of > or = 1:32 are indicative of recent infection. Titers of 1:8 or 1:16 may be indicative of either past or recent infection, since CF antibody levels persist for only a few months. A   four-fold or greater increase in titer between acute and convalescent specimens confirms the diagnosis. There is considerable crossreactivity among enteroviruses; however, the highest titer is usually associated with the infecting serotype.
