FDA Commissioner Stephen M. Hahn M.D. on Progress of Serological Tests. (Tests Needed Start Opening Economy)

Posted by: thepinetree on 04/09/2020 10:30 AM
White Oak, MD...Serological tests measure the amount of antibodies or proteins present in the blood when the body is responding to a specific infection, like COVID-19. In other words, the test detects the body’s immune response to the infection caused by the virus rather than detecting the virus itself. In the early days of an infection when the body’s immune response is still building, antibodies may not be detected. This limits the test’s effectiveness for diagnosing COVID-19 and why it should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose COVID-19.
