-10%

The Desmoglein DSG 1 and 3 Antibody Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure designed to detect the presence of antibodies against Desmoglein 1 and Desmoglein 3 proteins in the blood. Desmogleins are critical components of the skin and mucous membranes, playing a vital role in cell adhesion and maintaining the integrity of the epidermis. Autoantibodies against these proteins are often associated with autoimmune blistering diseases, such as pemphigus vulgaris and pemphigus foliaceus, which can lead to severe skin and mucosal blistering.

Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility in medical diagnostics, this test provides a crucial tool for clinicians in the diagnosis and management of autoimmune blistering disorders. By identifying the specific antibodies, healthcare providers can tailor treatment strategies more effectively and monitor the disease progression or remission in patients.

The test is priced at 1050 AED, reflecting the sophisticated technology and expertise required to accurately detect and quantify these specific antibodies. For patients experiencing unexplained blistering of the skin or mucous membranes, this test offers a path to understanding their condition and accessing appropriate treatment, marking a critical step in their healthcare journey.

DESMOGLEIN DSG 1 and 3 ANTIBODY Test

Cost: AED 1050.0

Test Details

The desmoglein (DSG) 1 & 3 antibody test is a diagnostic test used to detect the presence of autoantibodies against desmoglein 1 and desmoglein 3 proteins in the body. These proteins are found in the skin and are important for maintaining the integrity of the skin layers.

The test is primarily used in the diagnosis of autoimmune blistering disorders, such as pemphigus vulgaris and pemphigus foliaceus. These disorders are characterized by the presence of blisters and erosions on the skin and mucous membranes.

The DSG 1 & 3 antibody test involves taking a blood sample from the patient, which is then sent to a laboratory for analysis. The laboratory will test the sample for the presence of autoantibodies against desmoglein 1 and desmoglein 3 using techniques such as enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) or immunofluorescence.

A positive result indicates the presence of these autoantibodies, which is indicative of an autoimmune blistering disorder. Further clinical evaluation and additional tests may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis and determine the specific type of blistering disorder present.

It is important to note that the DSG 1 & 3 antibody test is just one component of the diagnostic process and should be interpreted in conjunction with the patient’s clinical presentation and other laboratory findings.
