To Remember Immunoglobulins- “GAMED”

TO REMEMBER IMMUNOGLOBULINS

IgA, IgG, and IgM are often measured together. That way, they can give doctors important information about immune system functioning, especially relating to infection or autoimmune disease.

To Remember Immunoglobulins- “GAMED”

IgG

  • the most abundant type of antibody, is found in all body fluids and protects against bacterial and viral infections.

IgA

  • is found in high concentrations in the mucous membranes, particularly those lining the respiratory passages and gastrointestinal tract, as well as in saliva and tears.

IgM

  • is found mainly in the blood and lymph fluid, is the first antibody to be made by the body to fight a new infection.

IgE

  • is associated mainly with allergic reactions (when the immune system overreacts to environmental antigens such as pollen or pet dander). It is found in the lungs, skin, and mucous membranes.

IgD

  • which exists in small amounts in the blood, is the least understood antibody.
