ANTINUCLEAR ANTIBODIES BY IF.

ANAs are commonly found in a variety of autoimmune diseases. Antibodies frequency increases with age in apparently healthy people. ANA patterns on Hep-2 slides only provide general clues about the particles (chromatin, nucleosomes, and spliceosomes). ANA patterns (apart from the centromere pattern) do not reliably correlate with the presence of specific antibodies and should be further evaluated by EIA using individual ENA antigens.
