Test ID: AGIDE    
Autoimmune Gastrointestinal Dysmotility Evaluation, Serum

Secondary ID A test code used for billing and in test definitions created prior to November 2011


NY State Approved Indicates the status of NY State approval and if the test is orderable for NY State clients.


Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Investigating unexplained weight loss, early satiety, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea in a patient with past or family history of cancer or autoimmunity


Directing a focused search for cancer


Investigating gastrointestinal symptoms that appear in the course or wake of cancer therapy, not explainable by recurrent cancer, metastasis or therapy. Detection of autoantibodies on this profile helps differentiate autoimmune gastrointestinal dysmotility from the effects of chemotherapy.


Detecting early evidence of cancer recurrence in previously seropositive patients who have a rising titer of 1 or more autoantibodies

Profile Information A profile is a group of laboratory tests that are ordered and performed together under a single Mayo Test ID. Profile information lists the test performed, inclusive of the test fee, when a profile is ordered and includes reporting names and individual availability.

Reflex Tests Lists test(s) that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial test(s)

WBNParaneoplastic Autoantibody WBlot,SNoNo
CRMWSCRMP-5-IgG Western Blot, SNoNo
ARMOACh Receptor (Muscle) Modulating AbNoNo
ABLOTAmphiphysin Western Blot, SNoNo

Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

If IFA (ANN1S) patterns are indeterminate, paraneoplastic autoantibody Western blot is performed at an additional charge.

If IFA patterns suggest CRMP-5-IgG, CRMP-5-IgG Western blot is performed at an additional charge.

If IFA patterns suggest amphiphysin antibody, amphiphysin Western blot is performed at an additional charge.

If IFA pattern suggest NMO/AQP4-IgG, NMO/AQP4-IgG CBA is performed at an additional charge.

If ACh receptor binding antibody is >0.02 or if striational antibodies are > or =1:60, ACh receptor modulating antibodies and CRMP-5-IgG Western blot are performed at an additional charge.
