Anti-dsDNA Blood Test - More Information

The anti-dsDNA test, also known as a dsDNA blood test and dsDNA antibody test, measures the anti-dsDNA antibody blood levels.

Anti-dsDNA antibodies, sometimes called double-stranded DNA antibodies, are proteins produced by the immune system that attacks the DNA within the body's own cells. The actual trigger that leads to the production of anti-dsDNA antibodies is not yet fully understood although it may have something to do with DNA existing outside of a cell after a cell is destroyed. Anti-dsDNA antibodies are of clinical significance because high blood levels are very specific for diagnosing SLE and also lupus nephritis. Additionally, elevated levels correlate with the severity of SLE which makes anti-dsDNA antibodies useful as a blood marker to evaluate disease management.

To get an anti-dsDNA test near you, simply order online and get your blood drawn at the selected Quest Diagnostics lab. Once your anti-dsDNA lab results are ready, they will be available for download. As can be seen on the sample anti-dsDNA lab report above, anti-dsDNA antibody blood levels are reported as a number and can be compared against the reference range provided by the lab.
