Serological marker for sporadic inclusion body myositis (IBM)
Euroimmun's Anti-cN-1A ELISA offers early and reliable diagnosis of IBM, and allows for differentiation of IBM from other muscle diseases (including polymyositis, dermatomyositis, necrotising myopathy, muscular dystrophy, and myasthenia gravis).
This kit uses the full length antigen cN-1A (Mup44, NT5C1A). Euroimmun holds an exclusive worldwide licence for this antigen. Antibodies against cN-1A are the only known serological marker for inclusion body myositis.
With a 96% specificity rate and the ability to run at room temperature, this ELISA test will often mean fewer muscle biopsies are required.
