Abstract:

Antinuclear antibody testing is one of the major components of immunological investigations. It is very useful in diagnosing autoimmune connective tissue disorders. ELISA, Immunofluoresence and immunoblot are certain investigations by which ANA testing is done. Indian studies about the performance of ANA testing using ELISA and Immunofluoresence are very less and fail to provide concrete evidence. Universally IF has been accepted as gold standard investigation for ANA testing. In India due to cost constraints physicians still use ELISA testing. In this study we aim to look into the performance of ELISA and IF in the testing of ANA testing.


Keywords: ELISA,Immuno-fluoresence and immunoblot.
