Serologic Tests for Cytomegalovirus Infections

  • Monto Ho


In this chapter we consider the various serologic tests that have been described for the diagnosis of CMV infection. The principles and background of each test are presented along with its utility. The technical details of each procedure are not described, as they have been admirably updated elsewhere (Lennette and Schmidt, 1979; Schmidt and Emmons, 1989). Tests for cellular immunity against CMV and their changes during and after various infections are described in Chapter 7.
