About Q fever antibodies

What is Q-fever?

Q-fever or query fever is a disease resulting from infection with the bacteria Coxiella burnetii. These bacteria are usually spread to humans from cattle, sheep and goats via inhalation of contaminated dust. Individuals who work with these animals, including vets and farmers, are at the highest risk of infection.

Symptoms of Q-fever are often mild, flu-like symptoms which resolve without intervention. More severe, chronic forms of the disease can lead to major organ damage of the heart, liver, brain and lungs. Chronic cases usually occur in individuals with weakened immune systems or heart problems and require treatment with antibiotics.  

Why take the test?

This test screens for antibodies produced in response to infection with Coxiella burnetii (Q-fever). It is typically used to diagnose Q-fever infection and immunity.
