About Ovarian autoantibodies

What are ovarian autoantibodies?

Antibodies are proteins typically produced by the immune system to target and protect against harmful entities. In some cases, the immune system can malfunction, producing antibodies which target and attack the body’s own cells called autoantibodies. Ovarian autoantibodies affect the ovaries and specifically target an enzyme called 17-alpha-hydroxylase (17-alpha-OH).

This enzyme is important for the production of sex hormones and glucocorticoids. Ovarian autoantibodies may be present in ovarian failure with Addison’s disease, autoimmune polyendocrinopathies, hypoadrenalism, insulin-dependent diabetes and pernicious anaemia.

Why take this test?

This test detects the presence of ovarian autoantibodies in the blood and may be used to investigate conditions such as ovarian failure with Addison’s disease, autoimmune polyendocrinopathies, hypoadrenalism, insulin-dependent diabetes and pernicious anaemia
