ANA (IF Method)

ANA (Antinuclear Antibodies) is a collection of Autoantibodies generated by the abnormal Immune System. Generally, Antibodies affect the harmful virus and bacteria that entered the body. Due to errors in recognition of self-antigens by HLA, Sometimes Antibodies are triggered against self-antigens of the body, hence affect the healthy cells mistakenly and cause autoimmune disorders. ANA – IFA (Indirect Fluorescent Antibody) is a primary test to examine antibodies to diagnose autoimmune diseases that affect tissues and organs of the body.
