Autoimmunity (8 Biomarkers)

The Extractable Nuclear Antibodies (ENA) Blood Test detects the presence of one or more autoantibodies in the blood that react with proteins in the cell nucleus. This panel of tests includes tests for different antibodies including Anti-RNP antibodies useful to detect mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD), anti-Sm antibodies for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), anti-SS-A (Ro) and anti-SS-B (La) antibodies for Sjögren's syndrome and Scl-70 antibodies for scleroderma (systemic sclerosis) and anti-Jo-1 for polymyositis.

This test is usually requested following a positive ANA test for those who have signs and symptoms of an autoimmune disorder.
