Anti-Jo-1 Blood Test
An Anti-Jo-1 Blood Test is used to detect the presence of Anti-Jo-1 Antibodies.
Walk-In Lab's Anti-Jo-1 blood test helps detect Anti-Jo-1 antibodies, which if present, can help diagnose polymyositis syndromes, myositis and interstitial lung disease. For those patients without a doctor or without insurance, the Anti-Jo-1 blood test is a cheap and confidential alternative that can be ordered online.
Results for this blood test are delivered in one to two days and no fasting is required. The Anti-Jo-1 blood test is also known as Polymyositis or t-RNA Synthetase.
The Anti-Jo-1 antibodies blood test includes a semiquantitative result of IgG class antibodies. Anti-Jo-1 antibodies are found in approximately 20 to 30 percent of patients with adult-onset polymyositis syndromes and are present in less than 65 percent of patients with both interstitial lung disease and myositis. The presence of Anti-Jo-1 antibodies in patients with myositis and interstitial lung disease may be predictive of a response to steroid treatment. Testing for ANAs is not adequate for the detection of Anti-Jo-1 antibodies.
