Antineutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibodies (ANCA) Summary

Description: Autoantibodies directed against cytoplasmic constituents of POLYMORPHONUCLEAR LEUKOCYTES and/or MONOCYTES. They are used as specific markers for WEGENER GRANULOMATOSIS and other diseases, though their pathophysiological role is not clear. ANCA are routinely detected by indirect immunofluorescence with three different patterns: c-ANCA (cytoplasmic), p-ANCA (perinuclear), and atypical ANCA.

Also Known As: ANCA; Anti-Neutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibody; Antineutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibody; Antibodies, Antineutrophil Cytoplasmic; Anti-Neutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibodies Show All >>
