Atypical perinuclear antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (pANCA); Saccharomyces cerevisiae, IgA; Saccharomyces cerevisiae, IgG
2 - 5 days
Turnaround time is defined as the usual number of days from the date of pickup of a specimen for testing to when the result is released to the ordering provider. In some cases, additional time should be allowed for additional confirmatory or additional reflex tests. Testing schedules may vary.
0.7 mL (Note: This volume does not allow for repeat testing.)
Red-top tube or gel-barrier tube
Specimen should be free of bacterial contamination, hemolysis, and lipemia.
Hemolysis; lipemia; bacterial contamination
Rule out Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis
Atypical ANCA: indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA); Saccharomyces cerevisiae, IgA, and IgG: enzyme immunoassay (EIA)
• Saccharomyces cerevisiae, IgA: negative: <20.0
• Saccharomyces cerevisiae, IgG: equivocal: 20.1−24.9; positive: ≥25.0
• Atypical antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies: negative: <1:20
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.
