Positive Hla B27 Antigen
Hello, could I still have rheumathoid or other type of arthritis if ana, anticcp, crp, esr, rheumathoid factor, hla-b27 antigen are all in range?
Maybe: Ra is possible although the pattern of involvement is not that typical. How positive was the ccp? Unless it is strongly positive it is not that specific for ra.
Probable: Ra is a clinical diagnosis confirmed by lab results and not the other way around. Hla-b27 is not a feature of RA although ccp ab is.
Negative hla-b27 antigen. Normal cpk, esr. Crp 1.6. Ra neg. For 7 months stiff sore muscles in hips, shoulders back what could this be? Doctor not sure.
Age, side effects,,,: This could be from just age effects on your muscles, especially if you've used them a lot during your lifetime for housework or in your work. You're on two medications for muscle relaxation that could have side effects invoking your nervous system and ultimately your muscles, and they might ache afterwards. You therefore might think of seeing your doctor to get off the meds (except nsaids).
Positive for hla-b27.This procedure rules out the b27:06 & 27:09 alleles which lit suggests aren't associated w/ spondyloarthropathies. What this mean?
Spondyloarthritis: Hlab27 is a generic marker that is in 8% of the caucasian population. Many people with diseased called spondyloarthropathies (ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, and crohns/uc related arthritis) will have a positive b27, but not all those with b27 will develop issues (in fact, the vast majority don't). The larger question is are the symptoms consistent with spondyloarthropathy.
No: Unless there was a lab error.Get a more detailed answer ›
Long list: Any autoimmune disease possible, its just a basic screen test, more depands on history and syymptoms.
I am hla-b27 positive. I've suddenly had 6 iritis flareups in the last 2 years. I think they are caused by contact lens abuse. Thoughts please.
Had 2 blood tests for hla b27. 1st test came back positive; 2nd test (pcr) came back negative. What would be the difference between the two tests?
HLA B27 Asssay: The pcr method has better sensitivity and specificity than the 1st test, antigen assay. Your symptoms and other clinical findings are more important.
If blood test by PCR was negative for hla b27, does this mean I definitely don't have it? (one other blood test was positive; not sure of the type).
HLA B27: Indicates a genetic predisposition associated with ankylosing spondylitis and a number of inflammatory disorders. It does not mean you don't have whichever disorder you are referring to.
2 blood tests done for hla b27: one was pos. And one was neg. (pcr). What is the difference of tests & what would trigger a positive with first test?
HLAB27: So, one test by pcr, the other test is what? If the two tests were different, do the test that is known to be more sensitive and get two readings of it.
I am suffering with severe pain in my hips for last 5 yrs, have hla b27 positive. Mri was okay. Please advice?
AS: Ankylosing spondylitis is of concern. A plain x-ray of the sacroiliac joints would pick up images of bone sclerosis better than an mri. A rheumatologist can discern and advise. Traumatic injury to the sacroiliac joints is a consideration. Has there been participation in extreme sports? An osteopath can evaluate injury to the sacroiliac joints.See 1 more doctor answer
My doctor said me that I am suffering from seronegative spondyloarthropathy. My crp is high 27. My hla-b27 report is also positive.
The question?: I don't understand what you would like us to do with the statement. It appears that you do have an inflammatory type of arthritis however. Best to consult a rheumatologist.
If both parents are HLA-B27+ would that guarantee all offspring to have the gene? If so would only 1 positive parent make it a 50% chance?
No: Mendel's laws. Each parent has one copy of this and one copy of another. Let us assume neither parent has two copies. There is a 75% chance. Now, why do you ask? HLA-B27 is common, and the only thing that makes it troublesome is that it gives a few percent of folks joint problems. It is not a reason to forego parenthood. Ask whether your sacroileitis might benefit from today's new Rx's.
Few cases of iritis. Had hla-b27 blood test done. One was positive, one was negative (by pcr). Since PCR is most sensitive, does this mean I'm clear?
Tests do not: Change treatment of the iritis. The lab test only confirms the diagnosis and etiology of it.
If positive for the hla b27 gene and 2cases of iritis, does this mean I have ankylosing spondylitis for sure? R these 2 factors enough for a diagnosis?
