C ANCA Test

What is the C ANCA Test?

This test checks for ANCA (antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies) in your blood. Antibodies are proteins produced by the immune system to fight viruses and bacteria. But ANCAs accidentally kill healthy neutrophils (a type of white blood cell). This can cause autoimmune vasculitis. 

Types of Autoimmune vasculitis are:

  • Granulomatosis polyangiitis (GPA), Wegener's disease. It most often affects the lungs, kidneys, and sinuses.
  • Microangiitis (MPA): This illness can impact the lungs, kidneys, neurological system, and skin.
  • Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA): Skin and lungs is commonly affected. It causes asthma.
  • Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN): This illness commonly affects the heart, kidneys, skin, and CNS.

This test can be used to diagnose Autoimmune vasculitis, including Wegener's granulomatosis and Microscopic Polyangiitis. Patients with classical/limited end-organ involvement Wegener's granulomatosis have autoantibodies against PR3. Antibodies to MPO (p-ANCA) are common in Microscopic Polyangiitis.
