Herpes Serology: HSV-1 and HSV-2 Type-Specific Diagnosis from the Public Health Perspective

Sponsored by: DiaSorin
Speaker

Abstract

Serology testing continues to be an indispensable tool for the management of several disease states, especially for the qualitative determination IgG antibodies to Herpes simplex virus Type 1 (HSV-1) or Herpes simplex virus Type 2 (HSV-2) in human serum.
 
Come to this educational seminar to learn about key objectives in HSV-1 or HSV-2 type-specific diagnosis:

  • Examine how serology assays may be indicated in certain clinical scenarios: in sexually active adults or expectant mothers to aid in the presumptive diagnosis of HSV-1 or HSV-2 type-specific infection.
  • Discuss the US clinical guidelines regarding why HSV-1 and HSV-2 type-specific screening is not indicated in the general US population as it is for other STDs.
  • Describe diagnostic methods for diagnosing HSV-1 or HSV-2 type-specific infection: the differences between virologic and serologic assays and their usefulness in herpes diagnosis.
