Your doctor will insert a needle into your vein and collect blood for a sample. The doctor may simply pierce the skin with a lancet if conducting serologic testing on a young child.

The testing procedure is quick. Excessive bleeding and infection may occur, but the risk of either of these is low.

What Is Serology?

Antibodies are diverse. So, there are various tests for detecting the presence of different types of antibodies. These include: An agglutination assay shows whether antibodies exposed to certain antigens will cause particle clumping.

A precipitation test shows whether the antigens are similar by measuring for the presence of antibody in body fluids. The Western blot test identifies the presence of antimicrobial antibodies in your blood by their reaction with target antigens.

What do the results mean? Normal test results Your body produces antibodies in response to antigens.

Acquired resistance to infectious diseases. An autoimmune disorder. Recovery from infectious disease.

ANS: C The desirable consequences of immunity include natural resistance, recovery, and acquired resistance to infectious diseases. A deficiency or dysfunction of the immune system can cause many disorders.

Undesirable consequences of immunity include allergy, rejection of a transplanted organ, or an autoimmune disorder. The first line of defense against infection is: a.

Unbroken skin or mucous membranes. Antibody production. Antigen recognition. ANS: A The first line of defense, or first barrier to infection, is unbroken skin and mucosal membrane surfaces.
