89500-3Sulfatide IgG Ab [Presence] in Serum by Line blotActive

Term Description

This term was created for, but is not limited in use to, the submitter's test strip, a membrane strip pre-coated with a specific set of antigens in parallel lines. If antibodies to any of those antigens are present in the patient's serum, they will bind to the specific antigen. The bound patient antibodies are then detected using labelled anti-human antibodies. Manufacturers call this method by different names, including immunoblot, line blot, and line immunoassay. LOINC uses the immunoblot (IB) method to mean that some electrophoretic/chromatographic separation occurs such that position (size) of the band is part of the assessment (as in Western blot). Because this assay does not involve a separation step but rather uses strips with pre-fixed antigens, the LOINC Method for this term is Line blot.

Part Description

LP14905-1   Sulfatide
Anti-sulfatide autoantibodies, also known as anti-GalS, have been associated with a variety of nervous system disorders, including IgM paraproteinaemia with associated demyelinating neuropathy, sensory impairment, and inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (IDPN). Studies have shown the presence of GalS on the external surface of the myelin sheath, which suggests that anti-GalS auto-antibodies can induce immune demyelination and may play a role in the pathogenesis of motor neuropathies such as Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), and in fact, over 60% of GBS patients have been found to have anti-GalS antibodies. Some data show that patients presenting with high titer of anti-GalS antibodies could benefit from early treatment with plasmapheresis and/or intravenous immunoglobulin.
