AIDS tests
AIDS tests, short for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome tests, cover a number of different procedures used in the diagnosis and treatment of HIV patients. These tests are sometimes called AIDS serology tests. Serology is the branch of immunology that deals with the contents and characteristics of blood serum. Serum is the clear light yellow part of blood that remains liquid when blood cells form a clot. AIDS serology evaluates the presence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in blood serum and its effects on each patient's immune system.

ANA (Antinuclear Antibody) Test
An ANA (antinuclear antibody) test can be performed on a patient's blood sample as part of the diagnostic process to detect certain autoimmune diseases. How is the test performed? How are the results interpreted? What is the incidence of a positive ANA (antinuclear antibody) test in various arthritis-related diseases?

ANA Blood Test Results: Learn Why This Test is Ordered & What the Results Mean f
The ANA blood test is one of many screening tests for autoimmune disorders. Find out how this test helps doctors to identify "invisible illnesses" that cause chronic pain and other symptoms and learn what your test results mean.

ANA Patterns
Diagnosing Lupus and Related Connective Tissue Disorders

ANA measurement What is this test?
This test measures antinuclear antibodies (ANA) in blood. It is used to evaluate autoimmune and connective tissue diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus and scleroderma

ANA test - MayoClinic.com
An ANA test detects proteins called antinuclear antibodies in your blood. Your immune system normally makes antibodies to help you fight infection. The antibodies detected in an ANA test are different. They may attack your body's own tissues.

ANA vs. ENA Test
ANA is an acronym for Anti-Nuclear Antibody. The ANA blood test is a nonspecific screen for autoimmune stimulation. Its use in Rheumatology is to screen for Connective Tissue Diseases; however, the presence of an ANA is not isolated to rheumatic diseases.

ANA: At a Glance
Why Get Tested? To screen for certain autoimmune disorders, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), polymyosistis, and a number of others

ANA: The Test
The test is used to help diagnose systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and drug-induced lupus, but may also be positive in cases of scleroderma, Sjögren’s syndrome, Raynaud’s disease, juvenile chronic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, autoimmune hepatitis, and many other autoimmune and non-autoimmune diseases.

About Paternity Tests - An Informational Website On DNA Based Parentage Testing
About Paternity Tests is an informational website on DNA based testing for paternity, maternity and other familial relationships. The site is written in a clear and understandable language, and is designed: to describe the scientific basis behind paternity testing; to elaborate on the uses of familial relationship testing; to advice on the steps necessary to order a paternity test; and to explain the laboratory procedure involved to perform a DNA based test for familial relationship.

Acid phosphatase test
Acid phosphatase is an enzyme found throughout the body, but primarily in the prostate gland. Like all enzymes, it is needed to trigger specific chemical reactions. Acid phosphatase testing is done to diagnose whether prostate cancer has spread to other parts of the body (metastasized), and to check the effectiveness of treatment. The test has been largely supplanted by the prostate specific antigen test (PSA).

Adrenal gland scan
The adrenal gland scan is a nuclear medicine evaluation of the medulla (inner tissue) of the adrenal gland.

Alanine aminotransferase test
The alanine aminotransferase test, also known as ALT, is one of a group of tests known as liver function tests (or LFTs) and is used to monitor damage to the liver.

Aldosterone assay
This test measures the levels of aldosterone, a hormone produced by the outer part (cortex) of the two adrenal glands, organs which sit one on top of each of the kidneys. Aldosterone regulates the amounts of sodium and potassium in the blood. This helps maintain water balance and blood volume, which, in turn, affects blood pressure.

Alkaline phosphatase test
Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme found throughout the body. Like all enzymes, it is needed, in small amounts, to trigger specific chemical reactions. When it is present in large amounts, it may signify bone or liver disease or a tumor.

Allergy tests
Allergy tests indicate a person's allergic sensitivity to commonly encountered environmental substances.

Alpha-fetoprotein test
The alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) test is a blood test that is performed during pregnancy. This screening test measures the level of AFP in the mother's blood and indicates the probability that the fetus has one of several serious birth defects. The level of AFP can also be determined by analyzing a sample of amniotic fluid. This screening test cannot diagnose a specific condition; it only indicates the increase of risk for several birth defects. Outside pregnancy, the AFP test is used to detect liver disease, certain cancerous tumors, and to monitor the progress of cancer treatment.

Amino acid disorders screening
Amino acid disorder screening checks for inherited disorders in amino acid metabolism. Tests are most commonly done on newborns. Two tests are available, one using a blood sample and the other a urine sample.

Amniocentesis
Amniocentesis is a procedure used to diagnose fetal defects in the early second trimester of pregnancy. A sample of the amniotic fluid, which surrounds a fetus in the womb, is collected through a pregnant woman's abdomen using a needle and syringe. Tests performed on fetal cells found in the sample can reveal the presence of many types of genetic disorders, thus allowing doctors and prospective parents to make important decisions about early treatment and intervention.

Amylase tests
Amylase is a digestive enzyme made primarily by the pancreas and salivary glands. Enzymes are substances made and used by the body to trigger specific chemical reactions. The primary function of the enzyme amylase is to break down starches in food so that they can be used by the body. Amylase testing is usually done to determine the cause of sudden abdominal pain.

Analysis of speckled fluorescent antinuclear antibody test antisera using electr
Antibodies to different components of the extractable nuclear antigen (ENA) have been thought to be serological markers for clinical subsets of rheumatic diseases. However, incomplete characterization and standardization of antigenic components such as ribonucleoprotein (RNP), Sm, and SS-B (Ha), and the multiplicity of autoantibodies produced by different patients have confounded correlations between autoantibody specificity and disease subsets.
