Borrelia burgdorferi, the infectious agent of Lyme disease, is another known factor associated with autoimmune diseases such as Lyme arthritis and neuroborreliosis.
Viruses, in particular, HHV-6, are some of the major contributing factors in autoimmunity, thus, the addition of HHV-6 IgG and IgM to EBV, CMV, HSV, VZV and Measles makes ISL’s viral assessments unique.
The simultaneous detection of biomarkers of autoimmunity along with viral or Borrelia antibodies may assist the practitioner in pinpointing the cause and effect relationship of a disease, which can help to design an effective treatment.
Tailored autoimmune assessments include:
- Autoimmune Profile (Basic)
- Autoimmune Profile (Comprehensive)
- Autoimmune Liver Disease Panel
