IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Autoimmune, Anti-Striated Muscle Antibody
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (e.g., serum) to determine antibodies against the striated muscles (SMAs). High levels of SMA are frequently found in patients with local or generalized fatigue and exhaustion of the muscular system (i.e., myasthenia gravis); these antibodies are also found in patients with rheumatic fever and other cardiac diseases (e.g., myocardial infarction).
