Reagents, Serology, Bacteria, Listeria monocytogenes, IgG Antibody
Definition : Serology reagents intended to detect immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies to Listeria monocytogenes, a species of bacterium closely resembling bacteria of the family Corynebacteriaceae. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria are the etiologic agent of listeriosis, which may cause in utero infections, that can result in abortion, stillbirth, or premature birth; infections acquired during birth can cause cardiorespiratory distress, diarrhea, vomiting, and meningitis. Infection in adults can produce meningitis, endocarditis, and disseminated granulomatous lesions.
