Measures both IgG and IgM forms of the antibody. Does not differentiate between these two forms. Hepatitis A antibody of IgG type is indicative of old infection and is found in almost 50% of adults. The IgM antibody test detects the first antibody produced by the body when it is exposed to hepatitis A. This test is used to detect early or recent infections and to diagnose the disease in people with symptoms of acute hepatitis.
HAV antibody indicates prior or acute infection with, or immunization to, Hepatitis A virus.
