Hi well come to HCM.
AsO titer can remain high even if the disease is not active. It is antibody produced
in the body against Bacteria. It suggests past or present infection with B-haemolytic
streptococci. For activity of the disease you have to asses C- reactive protein and
if it suggest disease is not active at present you can have valve treatment.
