Re: Ticker

Hi Rodney. What are these from?

IgM on the Western Blot test shows a more recent infection and the IgG shows a longer standing one.

I believe that OSPA on the Western Blot stands for outer surface protein A.

I am sorry, but I am not familiar with the others.

Re: Ticker

Hi Rodney....I didn't look them all up...But if you "ogle" them and play around with the wording you will find the answers. I just don't know how to explain them in my lingo...haha...

happy hunting!

Re: Ticker

Thanks guys. I'm down with the whole "IGM" thing...It was my fault for not asking about these other things during the appt. I'll find out in a few weeks and I'll let you all know.
