In brief: Correlation

Low-level anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies of varying specificities, including anti-lysozyme and anti-myeloperoxidase, are often found in ulcerative colitis and sclerosing cholangitis.
It's good to check as they support the diagnosis and may eventually be guides to treatment.
