Test Details


Rule out Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis


Atypical ANCA: indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA); Saccharomyces cerevisiae, IgA, and IgG: enzyme immunoassay (EIA)

Reference Interval

Saccharomyces cerevisiae, IgA: negative: <20.0

Saccharomyces cerevisiae, IgG: equivocal: 20.1−24.9; positive: ≥25.0

• Atypical antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies: negative: <1:20

Additional Information

IgA and IgG antibody testing for S cerevisiae is useful adjunct testing for differentiating Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Nearly 80% of Crohn's disease patients are positive for either IgA or IgG. In ulcerative colitis, <15% are positive for IgG, and <2% are positive for IgA. Fewer than 5% of healthy controls are positive for either IgG or IgA antibody, and no healthy controls had antibody for both. The atypical ANCA pattern has been observed in a significant percentage of patients with ulcerative colitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, and autoimmune hepatitis.
