Anti-Smith Ab Test - More Information
The Smith antibody test, also known as an anti-Smith test and an Sm blood test, measures the Smith antibody blood level.
Anti-Smith antibodies are a specific type of protein used in evaluating a specific type of autoimmune condition known as systemic lupus erythematosus, or SLE. While not every person with SLE has anti-Smith antibodies, 99% of people who do not have Smith antibodies do not have SLE, making it a specific lab test for evaluating the presence of SLE. Anti-Smith antibodies can be seen in people with inflammatory conditions such as pericarditis and lung fibrosis.
To get an anti-Smith antibody test near you, simply order online and get your blood drawn at a Quest Diagnostics lab. Once the anti-Smith ab lab report is ready, it will be available for download. As can be seen on the sample Smith antibody lab results, anti-Smith antibody blood levels are reported as a number and can be compared against the reference range provided by the lab.
This Smith antibody blood test is a component of the more comprehensive lupus test panel.
