Autoimmune diseases of the liver include
Autoimmune Hepatitis (AIH),
Primary Biliary Liver Cirrhosis (PBC) and
Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC).
Following antibodies are generally found in Autoimmune hepatitis
SMA, p-ANCA anti-SLA/LP
Mitochondrial antibodies - AMA- M 2 are directed against proteins of the inner
and outer mitochondrial membrane. They are a highly sensitive and specific
marker of primary Biliary cirrhosis (PBC).
Most patients with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis
display auto antibodies against granulocytes (p-ANCA). Occasionally, p-ANCA can
also occur in AIH and PBC, and their value for the differential diagnosis is
limited in this respect. Even though overlaps between PSC and AIH have been
reported, antibodies against SLA/LP have not been found in such patients.
