Results of this assay must be interpreted with caution, as broad variations in antibody response occur, and levels may remain elevated for years after infection. Further, as with many parasitic serology assays, antibodies induced by other parasitic infections may crossreact in this assay. Although a negative result usually rules out infection with Toxocara spp., parallel testing of serial samples may prove useful in following patients with suspected Toxocara infection.
