Interpretive

Reference Range:
0.00-90.0 mcg/mL Negative - No significant level of A. fumigatus IgG antibody detected.
90.01-99.99 mcg/mL Equivocal - Questionable presence of A. fumigatus IgG antibody.
100.00 mcg/mL or greater Positive - A. fumigatus IgG antibody detected. A positive result satisfies a single criterion in the determination of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA).
 
Use:Aspergillus fumigatus-specific IgG is one component of testing recommended to establish the diagnosis of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA); it is not appropriate for diagnosing invasive aspergillosis.
