IgG is the most abundant antibody in the human body, making up 75% of serum antibodies, and is responsible for controlling the infection of body tissues. Through this testing, it is possible to identify and diagnose certain conditions, such as autoimmune hepatitis, as well as indicate serologic immunity to certain viruses, such as measles, mumps, Rubella, Hepatitis B, and Varicella.
