O; C3, complement C3; C4, complement C4; hs-CRP, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein.
Similarly, the supplement-only group showed the greatest improvement in the inflammatory blood markers C-reactive protein and antistreptolysin
A repeat full blood count (FBC), HIV screen, thyroid screen, RPR, caeruloplasmin and antistreptolysin
O titre (ASOT) were done.
Likewise, normal results were obtained on tests for mononucleosis, cat-scratch fever, toxoplasmosis, human immunodeficiency virus, purified protein derivative, antinuclear antibody (ANA), anti-DNA B-cell antibodies, antistreptolysin
O, hepatitis, parvovirus B 19, HLA-B27, Brucella abortus, and uric acid.
Although serologies in most patients were positive for both antistreptolysin
O and deoxyribonuclease B antibodies, indicating [beta]-hemolytic streptococci infection, some were positive for just one or the other antibody.
Tests for infectious disorders: Detection of Hepatitis-B, Hepatitis-C Hepatitis B surface antigen, or HIV-associated renal disease, Hepatitis C antibody, Human poststreptococcal Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) glomerulonephritis, glomerulopathy antibody, antistreptolysin

Antinuclear antigen (ANA), ASMA, rheumatic factor (RF), antistreptolysin
O (ASO), and anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) were also found to be negative.

O and rheumatoid factor titers.
Our patient satisfied one major (Carditis) and three minor (arthralgia, fever, and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate) Jones criteria that were supported by elevated antistreptolysin
3 fL (range 80-99 fL), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR): 43 mm/hour, iron: 21 ug/dl (range 50-170 ug/dl), antistreptolysin
O (ASO): 357 IU/ml (range 0-200 IU/ml), and C-reactive protein (CRP): 24.

Acute rheumatic fever was defined by two major, or one major and two minor manifestations accompanied with supporting evidence of antecedent group a streptococcal infection as a positive throat culture, or elevated or rising antistreptolysin
(ASO) titer and echocardiographic findings (17).
