Lyme Cytokine Test

Lyme Cytokine Test

This revolutionary new multi-test method provides assessment of acute and chronic Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme) infection in patients.

The combination of B. burgdorferi (Lyme) specific T-cell response and cytokine analysis, in conjunction with standard western blot, provides both cellular and humoral immune response, as well as patient inflammatory response assessment.

This comprehensive assessment provides the most complete clinical analysis of infection status and immune response that can be utilized to guide therapeutic intervention protocols.

Identifies T-cell response for B. burgdorferi (Lyme) antigens, even “hidden” or low levels, and includes a panel of B. burgdorferi (Lyme) specific antigens that offer early and late stage identification.

OspC – Early antigen appears shortly after tick bite or transfer of the spirochete

p41 – Early and late antigen that provides mobility to the spirochete

VlsE-1 – Late antigen appears after spirochete infection

p100 – Late stage antigen

DbpA – Essential protein needed for overall virulence

The profile includes the analysis of B. burgdorferi (Lyme) antigen specific inflammatory immune response in patients, which can provide guidance for effective intervention protocols.

Assessment includes the following cytokines, chemokines, and immune growth factors:

IL-1β

IL-6

IL-8

IL-10

G-CSF

IFN-γ

TNF-α

This profile includes Lyme Western Blot IgG and IgM assessment.

Specimen Types: Single whole blood collection and serum collection

Specimen Requirement: Four Yellow top tubes

AND One Tiger Top tube
