WHAT IS ANTIHYALURONIDASE (AH) TITER TEST?

WHAT IS ANTIHYALURONIDASE (AH) TITER TEST?

Hyaluronidase is an extracellular enzyme antigen produced by group A beta-hemolytic streptococci. This test measures levels of antibodies to hyaluronidase that appear in clients who are recovering from group A beta-hemolytic streptococcal infections. Levels increase after a client recovers from a group A beta-hemolytic streptococcal infection (about the second week of infection) and decrease 3-5 weeks after infection. Levels are thus a reliable indicator of recent group A beta-hemolytic streptococcal infection.
