The persistence of immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibody to Toxoplasma gondii in sera from 38 patients after toxoplasmic lymphadenopathy was investigated by using an indirect immunofluorescence assay, a double-sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and an immunosorbent agglutination assay. Positive predictive values at 3 and 6 months after lymphadenopathy were, respectively, 45 and 73% for the indirect immunofluorescence assay, 25 and 45% for the double-sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay… CONTINUE READING
