About Test:

The ANCA Profile is a group of tests that helps to detect the presence of certain antibodies within the body. These include test for levels of PR3, Lactoferrin, MPO Elastase, Cathepsin G and BPI. This helps to indicate a risk for autoimmune problems such as granulomatosis with polyangiitis, inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, microscopic polyangiitis, and EGPA/Churg-Strauss syndrome. The results of the ANCA Profile, if positive, do not confirm diagnosis. Further investigation is needed to understand the cause of high concentration of these antibodies.

What are MPO antibodies?

What are anti-Lactoferrin antibodies?

Lactoferrin is part of the immune system. Apart from transporting iron, it is useful for antibacterial antiviral purpose, as well as in cases of allergy and cancer. In case of certain autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease for example), antibodies against lactoferrin may be produced.

What is Cathepsin G?

Cathepsin G is a substance within the body that kills pathogens, and also helps with soothing inflammation. In case of autoimmune disease, antibodies may be directed against it in conditions like ulcerative colitis.
