The IgG index is a calculated quotient using IgG and albumin contents of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and serum to detect intrathecal IgG synthesis, which is important in the diagnosis of inflammatory infectious diseases of the central nervous system (CNS). An ELISA to measure IgG and albumin contents in blood and CSF was developed to determine the IgG index. Twenty-three normal dogs and 98 dogs with various neurological diseases were examined. In most dogs with infectious inflammatory diseases… CONTINUE READING
