EPIDERMAL PEMPHIGUS ANTIBODY IFA IN DILUTIONS Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the EPIDERMAL PEMPHIGUS ANTIBODY IFA IN DILUTIONS test to detect the presence of autoantibodies against epidermal antigens in the blood. This test is primarily used for the diagnosis and monitoring of autoimmune blistering diseases, specifically pemphigus vulgaris and pemphigus foliaceus.

Test Details

The EPIDERMAL PEMPHIGUS ANTIBODY IFA IN DILUTIONS test involves diluting the patient’s serum and applying it to a slide that contains monkey esophagus or human skin tissue as a substrate. If the patient has antibodies against epidermal antigens, they will bind to the tissue on the slide. This binding is then visualized using a fluorescent dye-labeled secondary antibody that binds to the patient’s antibodies. The presence of fluorescence under a microscope indicates a positive result, indicating the presence of autoantibodies against epidermal antigens.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

Pemphigus vulgaris and pemphigus foliaceus are autoimmune blistering diseases that can cause painful blisters and erosions on the skin and mucous membranes. Common symptoms include:

  • Blisters on the skin and mucous membranes
  • Raw, painful areas of skin
  • Difficulty swallowing or eating
  • Flaky or crusty skin

If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is important to consult with a dermatologist. The EPIDERMAL PEMPHIGUS ANTIBODY IFA IN DILUTIONS test, along with clinical evaluation and other diagnostic tests, can help confirm the diagnosis of pemphigus vulgaris or pemphigus foliaceus.

Test Cost

The cost of the EPIDERMAL PEMPHIGUS ANTIBODY IFA IN DILUTIONS test is 910.0 AED.

Test Details

The EPIDERMAL (PEMPHIGUS) ANTIBODY IFA IN DILUTIONS test is a laboratory test used to detect the presence of autoantibodies against epidermal antigens in the blood. It is primarily used to diagnose and monitor autoimmune blistering diseases, specifically pemphigus vulgaris and pemphigus foliaceus.

The test involves diluting the patient’s serum and applying it to a slide that contains monkey esophagus or human skin tissue as a substrate. If the patient has antibodies against epidermal antigens, they will bind to the tissue on the slide. This binding is then visualized using a fluorescent dye-labeled secondary antibody that binds to the patient’s antibodies. The presence of fluorescence under a microscope indicates a positive result, indicating the presence of autoantibodies against epidermal antigens.

The test is usually performed alongside clinical evaluation and other diagnostic tests to confirm the diagnosis of pemphigus vulgaris or pemphigus foliaceus. It can also be used to monitor disease activity and response to treatment.
