About Autoantibody profile 2

What is an autoantibody profile?

Antibodies are proteins typically produced by the immune system to target and protect against harmful entities. In rare cases the immune system can malfunction, producing antibodies which target and attack the body’s own cells. Disorders caused by this process are called autoimmune diseases and can be potentially life-threatening. Autoimmune diseases can be distinguished based on the type of autoantibody produced by the body.

Why take this test?

This is a comprehensive test which screens for several autoantibodies associated with autoimmune conditions: gastric parietal cell antibodies associated with autoimmune gastritis and pernicious anaemia; thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPOAb) associated with Hashimoto's disease and Graves’ disease; islet cell antibodies associated with diabetes mellitus; adrenal antibodies associated with Addison’s disease; ovarian antibodies associated with primary ovarian failure.
