Interpretive Data
The presence of PM/Scl-100 IgG antibody along with a positive ANA IFA nucleolar pattern is associated with connective tissue diseases such as polymyositis (PM), dermatomyositis (DM), systemic sclerosis (SSc), and polymyositis/systemic sclerosis overlap syndrome. The clinical relevance of PM/Scl-100 IgG antibody with a negative ANA IFA nucleolar pattern is unknown. PM/Scl-100 is the main target epitope of the PM/Scl complex, although antibodies to other targets not detected by this assay may occur.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved or cleared this test; however, FDA clearance or approval is not currently required for clinical use.
