Human herpesvirus 6 – HHV-6
Human herpesvirus 6 – HHV-6 ELISA-VIDITEST and IF-VIDITEST anti-HHV-6 kits are intended for serological diagnosis of diseases associated with HHV–6 infection, such as exanthema subitum, acute respiratory illnesses, diarrhoea with fever and febrile seizures in infants, heterophile antibody-negative infectious mononucleosis in children, also interstitial pneumonia, encephalitis, meningitis, hepatitis and aplastic anemia in immunodeficient patients. The presence of IgG anti-HHV-6 antibody reveals the immune status of the patient. Seroconversion or 4–fold rise in antibody titre in paired serum samples, taken in acute and convalescent phase of the infection, is indicative of the active infection. ELISA-VIDITEST anti-HHV-6 IgG (CSF) can be used for the calculation of anti-HHV-6 intrathecal antibodies synthesis.
