Antibodies against ToRCH

EUROLINE: Anti-TO.R.C.H.-Profile

The term ToRCH encompasses infectious agents that can be transmitted to a child in the context of a vertical infection, either intrauterinally, during birth or postnatally. These include Toxoplasma gondii, rubella virus, CMV, herpes simplex virus (HSV), and other pathogens such as Bordetella pertussis, Chlamydia trachomatis, parvovirus B19, Treponema pallidum and VZV. Primary infections during pregnancy are especially feared, since they are associated with an increased risk of foetal damage. The determination of IgG and IgM antibodies against ToRCH antigens before or at the beginning of pregnancy allows the immune status of the mother and the risks to a pregnancy to be assessed.

The EUROLINE Anti-TO.R.C.H. Profiles are multiparameter line blots for the determination of antibodies of classes IgG or IgM against different pregnancy-relevant infectious agents:
