1. This assay is used for qualitative detection of specific IgM antibodies to Herpes Simplex virus 1 in serum samples. 2. Positive result for Herpes Simplex virus 1 IgM may indicate acute infection, reinfection or reactivation of latent virus. Persistence of low level HSV 1 IgM antibodies following post infection over a long period is not uncommon. False positive reaction may occur due to high levels of rheumatoid factor or cross reactivity by HSV 2 & during the course of other viral illnesses. 3. Negative result for Herpes Simplex virus 1 IgM indicates no Herpes Simplex virus 1 infection. False negative reaction may be due to processing of sample collected early in the course of disease or absence of immune response.
