Understanding HLA B-27, Flowcytometry in Asansol


What is HLA B-27, Flowcytometry in Asansol?

An HLA B-27, Flowcytometry is a blood test that helps to identify the presence of Human Leukocyte Antigen B27(HLA B-27), a specific type of protein present on the surface of white blood cells (WBCs) that helps the body's immune system tell the difference between its own cells and foreign/harmful substances and helps diagnose autoimmune disorders. This test is widely available at an affordable price in Asansol.

Your doctor may suggest an HLA B-27 test if you experience signs and symptoms such as stiffness and chronic pain in the back, neck, or chest, inflammation in eyes, urethra, and joints, the appearance of skin lesions, recurring fever, abdominal pain, or digestive problems indicative of an autoimmune disorder. Additionally, this test is also used during an organ transplant to match donated tissue with the recipient to minimize the risk of organ rejection and improve the success of the transplantation. 

No special preparation is needed for this test. You may eat and drink as per your daily routine.

What does HLA B-27, Flowcytometry measure?

An HLA B-27, Flowcytometry test evaluates the presence or absence of HLA B27 antigen to rule out the possibility of any autoimmune disorder. Once recognizing any cell as foreign and dangerous, the human leukocyte antigens (HLA) set out to destroy those cells to protect the body from any harm. The majority of the HLAs protect the body from damage, however, HLA-B27 is a specific type of protein that contributes to the dysfunction of the body’s immune system. The presence of HLA-B27 on the white blood cells can cause the immune system to attack those otherwise healthy cells. When this occurs, it can result in an autoimmune disease.
