Rubella is a herpes virus. Generally rubella is considered a mild adolescence disease. However a maternal infection could be transmitted through the placenta to the fetus, causing congenital rubella. Congenital rubella may result in chronic cardiac disease, growth retardation, hepatosplenomegaly, malformations and other severe anomalies. Children born asymptomatic may develop these abnormalities later in life. To reduce risk of such severe complications, accurate serological methods must be performed to determine the serologic status of childbearing aged women. The Rubella antibody status of pregnant women are commonly determined at the patient’s first prenatal visit. Those without antibodies are monitored through early pregnancy for seroconversion. The antibodies present to Rubella may be of IgA, IgM and IgG. The physiological function of IgA and its clinical implication is still unclear. The DIAGNOSTIC AUTOMATION ELISA Rubella IgA is an accurate and sensitive method to detect Rubella antibody IgA isotype.
