IgM antibody, the primary immune response to Bartonella, appears early in the infection and is highly diagnostic when present. IgG antibody response follows initial IgM response closely. Since the IgG response is broadly cross reactive between the species, these results must be interpreted with caution. 10% of a healthy population exhibit Bartonella henselae and B. quintana IgG titers of 1:64 - 1:128; none show titers of 1:256 or above.
