Autoimmune Dysautonomia Antibody Profile

Slide 13

February 2011

The autoimmune dysautonomia antibody profile consists of three classes of antibodies that aid the diagnosis. Firstly, there are the neuronal nuclear antibodies such as ANNA-1, also known as anti-hu antibody, which is associated with small cell carcinoma. Then there is the neuronal and muscle cytoplasmic antibody such as CRMP-5 IgG, GAD-65 antibody and striational antibody, and finally the third class is cation channel antibody such as the ganglionic alpha-3 neuronal acetylcholine receptor antibody that I have just discussed. The muscle acetylcholine receptor antibody, N and P/Q type calcium channel antibodies and voltage-gated potassium channel autoantibodies.
