ENA's

3 posts in this topic

Just a real quick question.

 

When my rheumatologist does my labs he does the ANA, ENA's etc, my ANA is always positive but my ENA always comes up negative.

 

In my last round of bloods my ENA came back as POSITIVE but the antibodies that followed SCL-70, RO/SSA etc... all were negative.

 

Does this mean anything yet? I am guessing not as it still isn't very specific I just thought I would see if anyone had any ideas,

 

Hugs,

Irene

Irene,

I sent you a PM with a link that hopefully answers your question. Apparently, the ENA panel helps to explain why the ANA is high by detecting specific antiboides within the ANA panel. Sounds like it could provide some information, but not sure how much.
