Detect IgG antibodies specific to HSV types 1 and/or 2 infection; confirm or rule out possible infection with herpes simplex types 1 and/or 2 virus in prenatal patients in whom HSV infection can cause serious prenatal disease. In a patient with no history of lesion disease, a positive result for this test may be indicative that the primary infection was asymptomatic. Once infected by HSV, it is possible for a patient to shed virus without the development of lesions (asymptomatic shedding). This test does not indicate the site of HSV infection.
