ADNase-B, or ADB, measures the antibodies associated with the bacteria group A streptococcus, in order to find if there had been a prior strep infection with them.
Adults: 0 to 85 units/milliliter (mL)
School-age children: 0 to 170 units/mL
Preschool children: 0 to 60 units/mL
What Do the Results Tell?
A normal result is negative. It indicates that you most likely haven’t had a recent strep infection.
A high result is abnormal. If your result is above the reference range, you may have had a recent strep infection.
