Chemiluminescence kit for the detection of Scl-70 antibodies in human serum or plasma.

Catalog Number: CL-Scl050
Size: 50 tests
Regulatory status: CE IVD
Clinical topic: Immunology & Autoimmune Diseases
Diagnostic panel: Rheumatic Diseases
CLIA Scl-70
  • Detection of anti-Scl-70 antibodies, IgG class
  • Evaluating patients with clinical signs and symptoms compatible with systemic sclerosis and positive test for antinuclear antibodies
  • Intended for human serum and plasma
  • A mixture of native and recombinant Scl-70antigens used

The Scl-70 antigen is a type I DNA topoisomerase. It has a native molecular weight of 100 kDa. The enzyme is degraded to a protein of 70 kDa and less. Anti-Scl-70 antibodies bind to a native form of the antigen as well as to proteolysis products with lower molecular weights.

Presence of Anti-Scl-70 antibodies is highly specific serological marker for diffuse form of systemic scleroderma. They are present in 20-40% of individuals with systemic scleroderma. They indicate worse disease prognosis, and higher probability of musculoskeletal system and organ affections (lung fibrosis, proteinuria, heart damage). Anti-Scl-70 antibodies are rarely present in localized form of scleroderma. The antibody level corresponds with the disease activity.

Antigen Used: A mixture of native and recombinant Scl-70 antigens.
