Viral Antibody Screen

About this test

Viruses are minute infectious agents that only multiply inside living cells. Their sole activity is to invade cells of living organisms which they take over in order to replicate themselves. All viruses have the same basic structure but their shape or size may vary. Unlike bacteria viruses cannot be grown in culture and antibiotics are not an effective treatment against them. There are some anti-viral drugs now available that work by either preventing viruses from entering a cell or by altering their ability to replicate.

Viruses can cause disease and illness in a variety of ways:

  • By destroying or disrupting the activity of the cells they invade - seriously so if vital organs are affected;
  • The response of the body's immune system may lead to symptoms such as fever and fatigue;
  • By interacting with the chromosomes of the host cell viruses can cause diseases such as cancer;
  • By weakening the body's immune system they may allow other illnesses to develop - as in AIDS.

The body's defence to virus invasion is fairly rapid but a virus is able to hide from the immune system allowing the infection to recur or become chronic.
