Ordering Recommendation

Use to monitor disease in patients diagnosed with pemphigoid and increased IgG BP180 and/or BP230 antibody levels. For initial pemphigoid diagnosis that discriminates among immunobullous diseases and for assessment of disease progression/changes and intermittent monitoring, the Basement Membrane Zone Antibody Panel (3001410) or Immunobullous Disease Antibody Panel (3001409) is preferred. In a relevant clinical setting, consider Pemphigoid Gestationis, Complement-Fixing Basement Membrane Antibodies (Herpes Gestationis Factor) (0092283).

For more information about components, methodology, and specimen type, see the ARUP Immunobullous Disease Testing Comparison tool.
