Genital Herpes Test

Of the many ways of diagnosing genital herpes, test methods will not include the cone biopsy that is commonly used for verruca genital hpv. A type specific test, glycoprotein G, is a relatively new FDA approved technology with accuracy comparable to the POCkit, HerpesSelect, and Western Blot technologies. Although highly sensitive, it only measures exposure to HSV and not the active presence of the virus. A serology measures immune response antibodies against the virus. Of the many ways of diagnosing genital herpes, test methods will not include the cone biopsy that is commonly used for verruca genital hpv.

Genital Herpes Test

  -  

Cone Biopsy, Verruca

A viral culture on scrapped/aspirated lesion sample is poor (frequent false negatives); a negative cannot confirm no viral presence. HSV diagnostics include: HIV antibody serology, HSV Western blot analyses, HSV isolation in cell culture, HSV DNA polymerase chain reaction (PCR), restriction enzyme analyses, cellular immunology studies and mucosal immunity studies. Of the many ways of diagnosing genital herpes, test methods will not include the cone biopsy that is commonly used for verruca genital hpv.
