ASCA – ANTISACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE ANTIBODY is produced by abnormality of the immune system which is associated with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). This test evaluates ASCA – IgA antibody in the blood to diagnose Crohn’s Disease and this test also used the differential diagnosis to differentiate Crohn Disease (CD) and Ulcerative Colitis (UC). CD and UC both are Inflammatory Bowel diseases (IBD) associated with ASCA Antibody.

Why Anti-SacromycesCerevisiae IgA Antibody test?


Anti-SacromycesCerevisiae (ASCA) IgA Antibodytest is used in inflammatory bowel diseases, to help distinguish Crohn’s disease from ulcerative colitis. As there is no single test for the diagnosis of Crohn’s disease, apart from clinical signs and symptoms diagnosis is arrived by blood tests (including ASCA Antibody test), stool tests, colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, or tissue biopsies. In the majority antibodies to Sacromycescerevisiae are found in approximately in 75% of patients with Crohn’s disease. Hence high antibody titers increase the likelihood of this disease. ASCA IgA antibody ELISA-test is based on the antibodies directed against mannan present in the cell membrane of S.cerevisiae.
