ANTI CENTROMERE ANTIBODY Test

What is the ANTI-CENTROMERE ANTIBODY Test?

Anti-centromere antibodies are linked to autoimmune diseases like scleroderma. The centromere Antibody Test makes it easier to detect and measure anticentromere antibodies in the blood.

Autoantibodies are proteins produced by the immune system that wrongly target the body's own tissues. ACA (anticentromere antibody) is an antinuclear antibody. It targets the circular chromosome, which is found in all nucleated cells except red blood cells. The ACA test examines anticentromere antibody levels in the blood to diagnose scleroderma.
