Dr. Richard Ford | Antibody Testing: Applications in Clinical Practice
Antibody Testing: Applications in Clinical Practice | +1CE Credit
In this webinar Dr. Richard B. Ford addresses the practical aspects of antibody testing for vaccine-preventable disease in clinical practice.

Abstract:

As “vaccine hesitancy” impacts veterinary medicine, the utilization of “Vaccine Titers” (Antibody testing for Vaccine-Preventable Diseases) has growing relevance in companion animal practice.

The recent introduction of valid, Point-of-Care Tests kits provides clinicians the opportunity to objectively assess the need for, and response to, core vaccines…and do so within minutes.

This presentation addresses the 3 most fundamental issues facing veterinarians regarding application of antibody testing in practice:

1) are test results a valid indication of protective immunity?
2) if so, what are the indications for testing individual patients?
3) how do test results (“positive” vs “negative”) impact patient management decisions?
