Auto-antibodies

I got so confused with ANCA and antidsDNA and all the other jumbled letters I came across in rheumatology! So I made a list of which antibodies are associated with which conditions. Hope it helps.

Inflammatory bowel disease

Diarrhoea of >6 weeks’ duration, especially with weight loss and where cancer is not suspected, warrants testing (such as full blood count, C reactive protein or erythrocyte sedimentation rate, coeliac antibodies, and thyroid function)

Goodpasture’s syndrome (anti-GBM antibody disease)

  This is a rare, genetic, autoimmune condition characterised by a combination of glomerulonephritis with alveolar hemorrhage in the presence of circulating anti-glomerular basement membrane (GBM) antibodies.  Circulating anti-GBM antibodies bind to basement membranes in the kidneys and lungs, fix complement and trigger a cell-mediated inflammatory response, causing glomerulonephritis and pulmonary capillaritis.    Specific predisposing factors include the following: Association with HLA-DR2

Myasthenia Gravis

Myasthenia Gravis is an acquired, autoimmune condition. Antibodies attack the Acetylcholine receptor. This gives weakness in muscles, particularly the ocular, bulbar and proximal skeletal. Fatigability is a key symptom!

Monoclonal antibodies: magic bullets with a hefty price tag

Sales of monoclonal antibodies are projected to reach more than $160bn in the US alone over the next few years so is it any wonder that drug companies fiercely protect their profits? Allen Shaughnessy considers why these unique and complex drugs are so eyewateringly expensive

A weak leg

A 50 year old right handed man presented with weakness of his right leg and arm of two months’ duration. The symptoms had come on over several days, during which he described a “dead leg” and he noticed his foot dragging while walking. On examination he had right lower limb pyramidal type distal weakness with a foot drop, power was graded at 4/5, and he had an upgoing plantar reflex. A computed tomogram of the brain showed a left parietal lesion with surrounding oedema but no midline shift, so contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging was undertaken (figs 1⇓ and 2⇓). Analysis of the cerebrospinal fluid showed raised protein with normal cell counts, normal angiotensin converting enzyme values, oligoclonal bands, IgG of 185 mg/L (normal value <40), and a negative viral polymerase chain reaction. Serum immunoglobulins and vitamin B12 values were normal; viral antibodies and antibodies for spirochetes were negative. He had no history of a neurological deficit.
