May have diagnostic relevance in multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN), Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), and Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS). For a more comprehensive ganglioside antibody panel when evaluating patients with autoimmune neuropathies, refer to Ganglioside (Asialo-GM1, GM1, GM2, GD1a, GD1b, and GQ1b) Antibodies (0051033). Test by itself is not diagnostic and should be used in conjunction with other clinical parameters to confirm disease.
