MPO Blood Test - More Information
The myeloperoxidase test, also known as an MPO lab test, measures the level of anti-myeloperoxidase antibodies in the blood
Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a type of protein / enzyme that is found in special types of white blood cells in the immune system. In the presence of foreign invaders, myeloperoxidase is released into the cells and helps destroy microbes attacking the body. MPO levels may also have some role in assessing risk in people with chest pain.
Occasionally, the immune system will malfunction and produce antibodies that cause the MPO enzyme to function inappropriately. Elevated myeloperoxidase antibody levels can cause autoimmune conditions such as vasculitis and polyangiitis. This particular MPO lab test will report whether MPO antibodies are detectable in the blood or not.
