Coxsackie Group B Antibodies Blood Test

  • Item # LC096263

This test measures total antibodies (IgG and IgM) for the combined 6 serotypes of Coxsackie virus group B.

Sample Report

There are approximately 29 different viruses classified as coxsackie viruses. They are small enteroviruses (gut viruses) classified in the same genus as the polio virus and share many of it's characteristics.

Coxsackie viruses are further divided into group A (24 viruses) and group B (6 viruses). Type A typically causes hand, foot, and mouth disease in children. Type B tends to affect the heart, lungs, pancreas, and liver causing more serious disease.

Some researchers have hypothesized that chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) might be a type of polio originating with a gut virus infection such as coxsackie. Since enteroviruses are characterized by their relapsing nature (on average, three-week intervals), it may be possible to identify Coxsackie during this time period. This means that a baseline blood sample needs to be drawn plus an additional sample drawn approximately three weeks later. A comparison of the two results will distinguish between a current or acute infection as opposed to a past infection.
