Soluble Liver Antigen
Describes the specimen type validated for testing
Defines the optimal specimen required to perform the test and the preferred volume to complete testing
Specimen Type: Serum
Container/Tube: Red or SST
Specimen Volume: 1mL
Collection Instructions: Draw blood in a plain red-top tube(s), serum gel tube(s) is acceptable. Spin down and send 1 mL of serum refrigerated in a plastic vial.
Specimen Minimum Volume
Defines the amount of sample necessary to provide a clinically relevant result as determined by the Testing Laboratory
Reject Due To
Identifies specimen types and conditions that may cause the specimen to be rejected

| Lipemia || Mild OK; Gross reject |
| Icterus || NA |
| Other || Microbially contaminated serum; Heavy visible particulate in specimen |
Specimen Stability Information
Provides a description of the temperatures required to transport a specimen to the performing laboratory, alternate acceptable temperatures are also included
Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test
Anti-soluble liver antigen antibodies are detected in 10-30% of patients with type 1 autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), but not in patients with type 2 AIH, primary sclerosing cholangitis or primary biliary cirrhosis. The antibody is directed against a UGA suppressor tRNA associated protein. In some patients with AIH, this antibody may be the only autoantibody detected by current assays.
Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.
Reference Range: Negative 0.0-20.0 U
Equivocal 20.1-24.9 U
Positive >25.0 U
Antibodies to soluble liver antigen (SLA) appear to be directed against the UGA-suppressor tRNA associated protein. These antibodies are highly specific for autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) and may rarely, be the only autoantibodies detected in serum from such patients. Antibodies to SLA are most closely associated with AIH type 1; the presence of these antibodies in patients with cryptogenic hepatitis suggests that these patients may have AIH type 1.
Anti-SLA antibodies may be detected in some patients with the primary biliary cirrhosis-AIH overlap syndrome, but not in healthy controls.
Indicates whether the report includes an additional document with charts, images or other enriched information
Outlines the days the test is performed. This field reflects the day that the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means that assays are performed multiple times during the day.
The interval of time (receipt of sample at Mayo Clinic Laboratories to results available) taking into account standard setup days and weekends. The first day is the time that it typically takes for a result to be available. The last day is the time it might take, accounting for any necessary repeated testing.
2 to 13 days
