Impact of antiviral medicines to HSV-2 igg results
An_251184 posted:
Can you help me understand a bit more on Herpes blood test (HSV-2 igg results), particularly for patients showing positive herpes culture and symptoms (blisters, sores, etc.) at least a few years ago, but who have been taking antiviral medicines for sometime? Does it mean:1.Such patients' blood test "HSV-2 igg" results may show negative?
2.If so, what percentage of those patients might show negative in blood test?
3.Is any of the blood tests (Western Blot, HerpeSelect, POCkit, etc.) less sensitive to the impact of the antiviral medicines, thus able to show that a patients is indeed herpes positive in a blood test?

By the way, is there any relevant research/studies or publications that you could share with me, or anybody else I could contact regarding this topic?
