Autoimmune Myelopathy Evaluation, Serum

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Evaluating patients with suspected autoimmune myelopathy, myelitis, paraneoplastic myelopathy using serum specimens

Profile Information A profile is a group of laboratory tests that are ordered and performed together under a single Mayo Test ID. Profile information lists the test performed, inclusive of the test fee, when a profile is ordered and includes reporting names and individual availability.

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

If indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA) pattern suggests ANN1S, ANN2S, PCABP, PCAB2; or AMPHS is indeterminate, then paraneoplastic autoantibody Western blot is performed at an additional charge.

 

If IFA patterns suggest amphiphysin antibody, then amphiphysin Western blot is performed at an additional charge.

 

If IFA pattern suggests NMDA-R antibody, then NMDA-R antibody cell-binding assay (CBA) and NMDA-R titer are performed at an additional charge.

 

If IFA pattern suggests AMPA-R antibody, then AMPA-R antibody CBA and AMPA-R titer are performed at an additional charge.

 

If IFA pattern suggests GABA-B-R antibody, then GABA-B-R antibody CBA and GABA-B-R titer are performed at an additional charge.

 

If IFA pattern suggests DPPX antibody, then DPPX antibody CBA and DPPX IFA titer are performed at an additional charge.

 

If IFA pattern suggests mGluR1 antibody, then mGluR1antibody CBA and mGluR1 IFA titer are performed at an additional charge.

 

If IFA pattern suggests GFAP antibody, then GFAP antibody CBA and GFAP IFA titer are performed at an additional charge.

 

If NMO/AQP4-IgG FACS screen assay requires further investigation, then NMO/AQP4-IgG FACS titration assay is performed at an additional charge.

 

If MOG FACS screen assay requires further investigation, then MOG FACS titration assay is performed at an additional charge.
