4052 – Anti-M2
The Anti-M2 is a quantitative immunoassay for the determination of IgG antibodies against mitochondrial M2 in human serum. The Anti-M2 is intended as an aid in the diagnosis of primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory findings. The immunoassay is designed for manual professional in vitro diagnostic use.
Circulating M2 autoantibodies are serological markers for PBC, a chronic inflammatory disorder of the small and medium bile ducts. M2 autoantibodies occur in up to 96% of PBC patients, hence the strong base for its use as serological marker.
