The Myelin Basic Protein (MBP) Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure aimed at measuring the levels of myelin basic protein in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Myelin basic protein is a significant component of the myelin sheath, which insulates nerve fibers in the central nervous system. Elevated levels of MBP in the CSF can indicate damage to the myelin sheath, which is characteristic of various neurological conditions, including multiple sclerosis (MS), acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis, and others.

The test is conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a reputable facility known for its advanced diagnostic services and state-of-the-art laboratory technology. By offering the MBP Test, DNA Labs UAE provides critical information that aids in the diagnosis and monitoring of diseases associated with myelin damage. The cost of the Myelin Basic Protein Test at DNA Labs UAE is 1070 AED, reflecting the specialized nature of the test and the sophisticated methodology involved in its execution. This test is an essential tool for neurologists and other healthcare professionals in the management of demyelinating diseases, facilitating timely and accurate diagnosis, which is crucial for effective treatment and management strategies.

MYELIN BASIC PROTEIN MBP Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the MYELIN BASIC PROTEIN MBP Test to measure the levels of Myelin Basic Protein in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) or blood. This test is primarily used in the diagnosis and monitoring of conditions affecting the central nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis (MS).

Test Details

The MBP test, also known as the Myelin Basic Protein test, is a medical test used to measure the levels of Myelin Basic Protein in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) or blood. Myelin Basic Protein is a protein found in the myelin sheath, which surrounds and protects nerve fibers in the central nervous system.

The test is often performed alongside other tests, such as an MRI scan or a lumbar puncture, to help confirm a diagnosis of MS or to assess disease progression. It can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatments for MS or other central nervous system disorders.

Test Components and Price

Test Name: MYELIN BASIC PROTEIN MBP Test

Components: CSF in a sterile screw capped container (2 mL minimum), Test Send Out Consent Form

Price: 1070.0 AED

Sample Condition: Ship refrigerated or frozen. Blood contamination and hemolysis may interfere with the results. Ideally submit 4th lumbar puncture collection tube to minimize contamination.

Report Delivery

Sample by 7th of the month; Report after 2-3 weeks

Method and Test Type

Method: RIA (Radioimmunoassay)

Test type: Autoimmune disorders, Disorders of Central Nervous System

Referring Doctor and Test Department

Doctor: Neurologist

Test Department: OS

Pre Test Information

Duly filled Test Send Out Consent Form is mandatory.

Interpreting the Results

The MBP test results are reported as a numerical value, indicating the concentration of Myelin Basic Protein in the sample. It is important to note that the MBP test is not specific to MS and can also be elevated in other conditions, such as certain infections or injuries to the central nervous system. Therefore, the test is often used in conjunction with other clinical information to make a diagnosis or assess disease activity.

A healthcare provider, such as a neurologist, is the best person to interpret the results of the MBP test and provide appropriate guidance and treatment.

Test Details

The MBP test, also known as the Myelin Basic Protein test, is a medical test used to measure the levels of Myelin Basic Protein in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) or blood. Myelin Basic Protein is a protein found in the myelin sheath, which surrounds and protects nerve fibers in the central nervous system.

The test is primarily used in the diagnosis and monitoring of conditions affecting the central nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis (MS). In MS, the myelin sheath becomes damaged, leading to the release of Myelin Basic Protein into the CSF or blood. Elevated levels of Myelin Basic Protein can indicate active demyelination or ongoing damage to the myelin sheath.

The MBP test is often performed alongside other tests, such as an MRI scan or a lumbar puncture, to help confirm a diagnosis of MS or to assess disease progression. It can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatments for MS or other central nervous system disorders.

The test involves collecting a sample of cerebrospinal fluid through a lumbar puncture or a blood sample. The sample is then sent to a laboratory for analysis, where the levels of Myelin Basic Protein are measured. Results are typically reported as a numerical value, indicating the concentration of Myelin Basic Protein in the sample.

It is important to note that the MBP test is not specific to MS and can also be elevated in other conditions, such as certain infections or injuries to the central nervous system. Therefore, the test is often used in conjunction with other clinical information to make a diagnosis or assess disease activity. A healthcare provider is the best person to interpret the results of the MBP test and provide appropriate guidance and treatment.
