CANDIDA: PCR test versus Candisphere

Posted by Molly on September 14, 2001 at 10:34:15:

Dr. Stoll:

Have you heard of the newer yeast test called the PCR for
candida (polymerase chain reaction test)? Immunosciences
lab in CA told me it was more sensitive than the antigen
test. Also, no lab I called knows anything about Dr.
Biamonte's suggestion of the blood test "Candisphere" for
yeast. Are you familiar with this and know where to get it?
Dr. Biamonte's office cannot be reached because it is in
NYC. Tha

Hi, Molly.

STILL, the most accurate test for diagnosing C-RS is the questionaire. The ONLY reason why they keep developing new tests is that people LOVE to have a "test" AND because the last "new test" has been found not to be very accurate.

Hope this helps.

Walt
