The Rubeola IgG Antibodies test is typically used to check for immunity to Rubeola, commonly known as Measles. This test measures the level of antibodies produced by the immune system in response to the virus. Results provide a numerical value for the antibody level which can be compared to a reference interval to determine immune status. Most people in the United States are vaccinated for Measles when they are children. However, immunity may not last for a person's entire life. People who are infected and recover typically develop a natural immunity.
Rubeola (Measles) is a contagious viral infection which is spread through respiratory fluids. Typical symptoms include fever, cough, light sensitivity, red eyes, sore throat, runny nose, white spots inside the mouth and a rash on the face, trunk and legs. Most people recover after a couple weeks, but some may develop more serious complications. The risk of further complications is increased for people who are malnourished or have a weakened immune system. Pregnant women who are infected will have a greater likelihood of miscarriage or premature labor.
This test is typically ordered when someone requires proof of immune status for work or school. It may be also be ordered by women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant to ensure they are not at risk of contracting the virus.
The Rubeola Titer may be ordered by itself but is more commonly done as part of an MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) Immunity test. This test is also included in our Immunity Panel which includes other common titer tests.
Turnaround time for the Rubeola Antibodies, IgG test is typically 1-3 business days.
Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
