Part Description

LP31708-8   Purkinje cell cytoplasmic type 2
Anti-PCA-2 (purkinje cell cytoplasmic antibody type 2) autoantibodies are important markers of neurological autoimmunity related to cancer. PCA-2 binds to cerebellar Purkinje somata and dendrites, neurons in internal granular layer and dentate nucleus, and neuronal elements in gut and kidney. Patients present with mixed subacute neurological diorders, including brainstem or limbic encephalitis, cerebellar ataxia, Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome, and autonomic and motor neuropathy. Patients with symptoms of such disorders, especially those with known risk factors for cancer, will undergo testing for paraneoplastic antibodies, including PCA-2. Testing is also performed to monitor the immune response of seropositive patients in the course of cancer therapy.[PMID:10716248] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
