Why it is Done
What is this test
Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) are autoantibodies produced by a person's immune system that mistakenly target and attack proteins within the person's neutrophils (a type of white blood cell). ANCA testing detects and measures the amount of these autoantibodies in the blood. Two of the most common types or subsets of ANCA are the autoantibodies that target the proteins myeloperoxidase (MPO) and proteinase 3 (PR3).
