HLA-B27 Typing

$129.00

Inflammatory
joint pain, stiffness, and symptoms of spinal fusion, such as limited mobility,
are associated with conditions linked to HLA-B27 positivity. The HLA-B27 typing
is a laboratory test identifying the presence of the HLA-B27 gene variant,
which increases the risk of autoimmune diseases like ankylosing spondylitis,
reactive arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis. It’s crucial to note that HLA-B27
positivity alone does not cause symptoms but serves as a valuable diagnostic
marker. Understanding the link between HLA-B27 and these conditions assists
healthcare professionals in tailoring appropriate treatment strategies for
individuals with associated symptoms.
