Acute sera is when they run a test, usually an antibody level, while the person is ill. Convalescent sera is the serum of a patient that has recovered from an infection usually done about 4 weeks after treatment.

Falling levels of the antibodies usually is taken to confirm the diagnosis and that the treatment worked.
