The first is the immunofluorescence pattern is indeterminate.  In this situation there may be an antibody staining pattern suspicious for antineuronal nuclear antibody type-1 or ANNA-1, but not all of the characteristic features are present.  In that setting we will additionally do a paraneoplastic Western blot to look for the characteristic pattern associated with this antibody.  The second and third settings would occur where an antibody pattern suggestive of amphiphysin antibody or CRMP-5 IgG were detected.  Then we would confirm the presence of these antibodies with recombinant Western blots for the appropriate antibody either amphiphysin or CRMP-5 IgG.
