Measles, Mumps, and Rubeola (MMR)
Measles and mumps tests may be used to:
- Confirm that a person is immune to the viruses due to previous infections or vaccination
- Diagnose an active case of measles or mumps
- Detect, monitor, and track outbreaks for public health purposes
When measles or mumps IgM antibodies are present in someone who has not been recently vaccinated, then it is likely that the person has a current measles or mumps infection. When both IgM and IgG antibodies are present or there is a fourfold increase in concentrations between acute and convalescent IgG antibody tests, then it is likely that the person has a current or had a recent measles or mumps infection.
