What is the ANF (ANTINUCLEAR FACTOR)?   

The antinuclear antibody test is done with an indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) method to look for ANA in blood. ANAs are autoantibodies that attack the body's healthy cells and cause damage to the joints, skin, muscles, and other parts of the body, like the heart. Checking your immune system is a good idea for people at risk of having autoimmune disorders like arthritis, diabetes, scleroderma, lupus, and more (SLE).

 

Why Done? 

  • To determine the existence of an autoimmune disease such as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
  • To assess the possibility of autoimmune Connective Tissue Disorders (CTDs) other than SLE, such as Polymyositis, Scleroderma, Sjögren's syndrome, and other similar disorders.
  • ANF helps diagnose autoimmune illnesses such SLE, MCD, RA, Sjogren's syndrome, PSS, and CREST syndrome. In healthy people, low titer ANA positive increases with age. Hydralazine and Procainamide are two examples.
