Test ID: FPOLO    
Poliovirus (Types 1, 3) Antibodies, Neutralization

Clinical Information Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test

This sensitive procedure is recommended for vaccine response testing and type-specific serodiagnosis of recent poliovirus infection. It can also serve as an aid for diagnosing immune deficiency disorders.

Reference Values Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.

Polio 1 Titer:  <1:8

Polio 3 Titer:  <1:8

 

The presence of neutralizing serum antibodies (titers 1:8 up to >1:128) against polioviruses implies lifelong immunity. Some persons without detectable titers (<1:8) may also be immune as demonstrated by elicitation of a secondary-type serum antibody response upon rechallenge with live polio vaccine.
