In brief: Anti-DNA antibodies

Simple blood tests can be performed to test for anti-dna antibodies.
Usually the screen is started with a basic ANA test which can then be followed with more specific antibody testing to determine if a specific disease can be identified. Of course, symptoms must also correlate since we do not simply provide diagnosis based on lab findings.
