Anti-Nuclear Antibodies by Indirect Fluorescent Antibody (IFA), Cerebrospinal Fluid

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

ANA are commonly found in a variety of autoimmune diseases. Antibody frequency increases with age in apparently healthy people. ANA patterns on Hep-2 slides provide only general clues about particles (chromatin, nucleosomes and spliceosomes). ANA patterns (other than centromere pattern) are not reliably correlated with the presence of specific antibodies and must be further evaluated by EIA using individual ENA antigens.
