Sample Report


An Extractable Nuclear Antigen Antibodies short for (ENA) detects the presence of one or more specific autoantibodies in the blood. Autoantibodies are produced when a person’s immune system mistakenly targets and attacks the body’s own tissues which leads to autoimmune disorders.

A physician will order an ENA test generally when a person has signs and symptoms that could be due to an autoimmune disorder and has a positive ANA test. Signs and symptoms of autoimmune disorders are highly variable and can involve several different areas of the body.
