Autoimmune liver disease

Comprehensive panel testing to diagnose common forms of autoimmune liver disease

Due to the variance in forms of autoimmune liver disease, which include autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), and overlapping syndromes, patients can be misdiagnosed. Early and accurate diagnosis can lead to better treatment outcomes for patients, namely, the avoidance of end-stage liver disease and the need for liver transplantation.

Advantages

  • Screening evaluation for individuals suspected of autoimmune liver disease.
  • Detects for two types of antibodies associated with AIH and one that is highly suggestive of PBC.
  • Can help guide diagnosis in patients with liver disease of unknown etiology.
