Immunoglobulins

There are five major types of immunoglobulins classified on the basis of their heavy chain: IgG, IgM, IgA, IgE and IgD. Elevation of all the immunoglobulins (polyclonal gammopathy) is seen in chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. An increase of a single immunoglobulin (monoclonal gammopathy) may be associated with a benign condition or a malignancy such as plasma cell myeloma or lymphoma. In these latter conditions, other immunoglobulins may be suppressed. Reduced immunoglobulins are seen in various immune deficiency states.

Reference ranges are:

IgG

600 - 1500 mg/dL

IgA

60 – 400 mg/dL

IgM

50 – 300 mg/dL

 

Specimen requirement is one SST tube of blood.
