|Neuronal Nuclear Ab (Yo) IgG, IB, Serum||Negative|

This test detects IgG antineuronal antibodies to Hu, Ri, Yo and Tr (DNER) antigens.
Antineuronal antibodies serve as markers that aid in discriminating between a true paraneoplastic neurological disorder (PND) and other inflammatory disorders of the nervous system. Anti-Hu (antineuronal nuclear antibody, type I) is associated with small cell lung cancer. Anti-Ri (antineuronal nuclear antibody, type II) is associated with neuroblastoma in children and with fallopian tube and breast cancer in adults. Anti-Yo (anti-Purkinje cell cytoplasmic antibody) is associated with ovarian and breast cancer. Anti-Tr(DNER) is associated with Hodgkin's lymphoma.
The presence of one or more of these antineuronal antibodies supports a clinical diagnosis of PND and should lead to a focused search for the underlying neoplasm
