HLA B-27

What is the HLA B-27 Test?

An HLA B-27 blood test looks for a protein called Human leukocyte antigen B-27, which is on the surface of white blood cells. This protein is called HLA B-27, and the test looks for it. HLA B-27 may be a sign of an autoimmune disease, where the body's guarding cells (WBC) attack their cells.

This test is done if you have symptoms of arthritis, like chronic joint pain, stiffness, and inflammation in your lower back. This test is done if you have these symptoms. Another time it might be good to do this is if your eyes are red, especially if you're a man.

People with HLA B-27 are more likely to get autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and reactive arthritis. B-27 is also said to be linked to inflammatory bowel disease and other long-term health problems, people say. Though the diseases caused by HLA-B27 are more common in men, women can also get them.
