ASO

ASO is an antibody produced in human blood against streptolysin O made from an infection of Streptococcus bacteria. An elevated or rising ASO titer may demonstrate recent streptococcal infections. Some autoimmune responses, glomerulonephritis, acute tonsillitis, scarlet fever and rheumatic fever may be associated with streptococcal infections.
Even if ASO titers may vary due to a number of factors including population and age.
