The present investigation has shown that antibodies titers obtained by IgM-IFA performed on pure IgM-fractions, obtained by gel-filtration method, correlate well with DS-IgM-ELISA. False negative IgM-IFA results that frequently occurs with sera having greater than or equal to 200 I.U./ml by IgG-IFA, were not observed with DS-IgM-ELISA: and the 98% of sera positive only after separation of IgM fraction with IgM-IFA, are also positive with DS-IgM-ELISA performed on whole serum.
