Autoantibodies Against Phospholipase A2 Receptor

Anti-phospholipase A2 Receptor

Transfected cells: antibodies against PLA2R.

  • Detection of antibodies against phospholipase A2 receptor (PLA2R).
  • Indication: primary membranous nephropathy (MN), also membranous glomerulonephritis (MGN).
  • The detection of antibodies against phospholipase A2 receptors is highly specific and aids differential diagnosis of primary MN from the secondary form.

Anti-phospholipase A2 Receptor

Anti-PLA2R ELISA (IgG)

  • Indication: primary membranous nephropathy (MN), also membranous glomerulonephritis (MGN).
  • Anti-PLA2R antibody titers serve as a marker for deciding on the necessity and extent of immunosuppressive therapy required. They are also useful for monitoring the disease course of patients undergoing therapy.
