Aquaporin 4 water channel Ab [Presence] in Cerebral spinal fluid by Immunofluorescence
LP102618-8 Aquaporin 4 water channel Ab
Approximately 75% of patients with neuromyelitis optica (NMO) express antibodies to the aquaporin-4 (AQP4) receptor. Diagnosis of NMO requires the presence of longitudinally extensive acute myelitis (lesions extending over 3 or more vertebral segments) and optic neuritis. While absence of antibodies to the AQP4 receptor does not rule out the diagnosis of NMO, presence of this antibody is diagnostic for NMO. Source: ARUP Laboratories, ARUP
