Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)

Biomarkers related to this condition:

ANA by HEp-2

Antinuclear antibody (ANA) testing is used in the diagnostic evaluation of various autoimmune diseases, including connective tissue diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Sjögren syndrome, and systemic sclerosis (SSc). Initial t

Blood

An ANA test detects antinuclear antibodies (ANA) in your blood. Your immune system normally makes antibodies to help you fight infection. In contrast, antinuclear antibodies often attack your body's own tissues — specifically targeting

ANA IgG

ANA IFA is a first line screen for detecting the presence of up to approximately 150 autoantibodies in various autoimmune diseases. A positive ANA IFA result is suggestive of autoimmune disease and reflexes to titer and pattern. Further laboratory te

Ana Pattern

Usually, the results of the ANA test are reported in titers and patterns. The titer gives information about how many times the lab technician diluted the blood plasma to get a sample of ANAs. The pattern of the ANA test can give information about

ANA titer

The ANA titer is a measure of the amount of ANA in the blood; the higher the titer, the more autoantibodies are present in the sample. Patient samples are often screened for antinuclear antibodies after being diluted 1:40 and 1:160 in a buffered s

Anti DNAse B Titer

The AntiDNAse B Titer is a test used in conjunction with ASO titer tests. It tests for poststreptococcal complications.

Anti-DBL-Strand DNA Ab

The anti-dsDNA test identifies the presence of these autoantibodies in the blood. The test for anti-dsDNA, along with other autoantibody tests, may be used to help establish a diagnosis of lupus and distinguish it from other autoimmune disorders.

Anti-DNA (DS) Ab Qn

The anti-dsDNA test identifies the presence of these autoantibodies in the blood. The test for anti-dsDNA, along with other autoantibody tests, may be used to help establish a diagnosis of lupus and distinguish it from other autoimmune disorders.

Anti-dsDNA ab (Farr Assay)

The Anti-dsDNA antibody test, particularly the Farr assay, is a highly specific diagnostic tool pivotal in the evaluation and management of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), a complex autoimmune disorder. Double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) antibodies are

Anti-Sm Ab (RDL)

Serum

Anti-Sm antibodies (Anti-Smith antibodies) are autoantibodies that are strongly associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), a chronic autoimmune disease. The presence of Anti-Sm antibodies is considered a specific marker for SLE, as these ant

ENA to Smith (Sm) Antibody

The ENA (Extractable Nuclear Antigens) to Smith (Sm) antibody test plays a pivotal role in the field of autoimmune diagnostics, particularly in the context of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Smith antibodies are a subset of antinuclear antibodies
