In a group of 16 women with elevated titers more than 1/64 of serum IgA to HSV, but without clinical evidence of genital infection, we studied the ratio level between p-IgA and m-IgA and their avidity for viral antigen. While in recurrent-symptomatic infections (only m-IgA are detected) in our group both m-IgA and p-lgA were found (ratio 50%). Furthermore, both m-IgA and P-IgA showed moderate avidity in contrast to the high avidity observed in IgG in the same subjects.
