Anti mitochondrial NEGATIVE
antibody titre

Anti smooth muscle NEGATIVE

Reticulin antibody titre NEGATIVE
Parital cell NEGATIVE

Hi Maia,

Thankyou for replying to my post. There were no values or titres given for the anti bodytests. My G.P. said that the -sm, RNP, SSA and SSB were all positive. They are displayed on the report as follows;

R ENA (RO/LA/SM/RNP/JO1/SCL70)
-sm/RNP/SSA/SSB POSITIVE

I am seeing a rheumatologist on Tuesday.

Thanks Clare.T, that information was really helpful. My G.P. has said that my -sm, RNP, SSA and SSB were all positive, so Im assuming that the RO, JO1 and SCL70 are negative. Do you know what the DNA binding is as mine was 13.2?
