ANCA - Mpo (P-Anca)

ANCA- Antineutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibodies are Autoantibodies created by the Immune System. Sometimes they mistakenly affecting Neutrophils proteins ( Kind of white blood cells). Myeloperoxidase (MPO) (pANCA) and Proteinase (PR3) (cANCA) are the main Proteins affected by the autoantibodies. MPO (pACNA) test evaluates the MPO levels in the blood to check the inflammation and infection for diagnosing Autoimmune diseases such as Wegener’s Granulomatosis(WG) and Microscopic Polyangitis (MPA).

Why ANCA – MPO –pANCA test?


ANCA – MPO –pANCA is Antineutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibodies produced by the immune system. ANCA reacts with enzymes in the cytoplasmic granules of human neutrophils such as protease-3, myeloperoxidase (MPO), elastase, and cathepsin G. Elevated levels of MPO are associated with vascular diseases, lupus, and other inflammatory conditions. Perinuclear anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies are those that stain the materials around the nucleus of a neutrophil. The most common pANCA target is myeloperoxidase (MPO), a neutrophil granule protein whose primary role is the normal metabolic process of generating oxygen radicals. In conditions like vasculitis, the target is usually MPO. This test helps to detect and diagnose certain types of auto-J), microscopic polyangitis, and eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangitis (Churg Strauss syndrome).
