Pemphigus Antibody Panel - Epithelial Cell Surface Antibodies and Desmoglein 1 and Desmoglein 3 Antibodies, IgG
Use as preferred serum antibody panel for initial assessment and disease monitoring in IgG-variant pemphigus. Testing should be clinically supported and/or correlated with concurrent Cutaneous Direct Immunofluorescence, Biopsy (0092572).
Pemphigus vulgaris and pemphigus foliaceus are the most common types of IgG-variant pemphigus with blistering and erosive disease affecting skin and mucous membranes.
Panel components include antibody testing for IgG epithelial cell surface and IgG desmoglein 1 and 3. To order individual component tests, refer to Epithelial Cell Surface Antibody IgG (0090266) or Epithelial Skin Antibody (0090299) and Desmoglein 1 and Desmoglein 3 Antibodies in Pemphigus, IgG (0090649).
Alternatively, order Immunobullous Disease Panel, Epithelial (3001409). Note that this test is included as part of the Immunobullous Disease Panel, Epithelial.
