Intended Use:

The Immunolab dsDNA IgG Antibody ELISA Test Kit has been designed for the detection and the quantitative determination of specific IgG antibodies against dsDNA in serum and plasma. The option of a qualitative protocol for screening purposes is also available.

General Info:

Circulating antibodies to dsDNA are strongly associated with SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus. Antibodies against dsDNA are mainly found in the active stage of the disease and as such represent activity markers for SLE. The test can also be used to monitor the level of antibodies to dsDNA in individual patients during treatment and remission of the disease. The presence of antibodies to dsDNA in SLE has been included as one of the criteria for disease classification by the American Rheumatism Association. In addition circulating antibodies to dsDNA are used for the differential diagnosis of systemic autoimmune diseases.
