Ana titer with reflex to ifa of 1:320 and neg for antibody tests what does that mean? Pattern was speckled and homogeneos

Do you have anemia?: The most common antibody involved in warm antibody autoimmune hemolytic anemia is igg. The igg antibodies attach to a red blood cells with maximal reactivity at 37°c (versus cold antibody induced hemolytic anemia whose antibodies only bind red blood cells at low body temperatures, typically 28-31°c). Spleen cells will pick off portions of the red cell membrane, almost like they are taking a bite. ...Read more
To check immunity: Antibodies are proteins involved in immune reactions. An antibody titer measures how much of these proteins have been made against a particular substance. For example: to see if you've had recent exposure to an organism like mono; to ensure you are protected against infections like strep; to ensure you have responded to a vaccine; to check for an autoimmune condition; to type blood for transfusion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Igm elevated means a "recent" infection, IgG elevation means old or previous exposure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
