The term avidity used to express the strength of the bond between a serum specimen and a multivalent antigen. It is known that the avidity increases with time after antibody challenge and measurement of the avidity has been used diagnostically. Recently an assay measuring the IgG avidity of various virus infections and of toxoplasmosis was used to distinguish between acute and chronic infection. Our study was focused on the method to distinguish acute and chronic Toxocara infection, zoonosis… CONTINUE READING
