In brief: Autoimmune diseases
Anti-dna antibodies, a blood test done when suspecting connective tissue diseases also known as autoimmune diseases (example: lupus).
The body immune system makes antibodies to attack its own dna resulting in illness. Caution: blood test alone will not make the diagnosis. Typical symptoms plus test are needed for diagnosis.
