What is ANA/ENA 18 Antigens, Qualitative Profile, Blot/LIA in Pune?

Available at an affordable price in Pune with Tata 1mg labs, an ANA/ENA 18 Antigens, Qualitative Profile, Blot/LIA detects specific antibodies or proteins called Antinuclear antibodies (ANAs) or autoantibodies. These antibodies, produced by the immune system, mistakenly attack healthy cells and tissues, leading to autoimmune disorders. This profile helps in diagnosing various autoimmune conditions, including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Sjogren's syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Scleroderma, and other connective tissue disorders. 

This profile analyzes a panel of 18 antigens, including those associated with Extractable Nuclear Antigens (ENA), offering insights into the autoimmune response. Once ANA positivity is established, further testing with an ENA panel may be warranted using a method called line immunoassay (LIA) to qualitatively analyze antibodies against 18 specific antigens associated with autoimmune disorders. By identifying specific antigens associated with various autoimmune disorders, an ANA/ENA 18 Antigens, Qualitative Profile, Blot/LIA helps in categorizing and understanding the nature of the autoimmune response in an individual’s body. Overnight fasting of 8 to 12 hours is required for this test. However, drinking water is acceptable.
