By including IgM, Array 7X helps with early detection of neuro-autoimmune reactivity, the identification of multi-focal motor neuropathy, lower motor neuron syndromes, early development of relapses in multiple sclerosis and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, and as a tool to monitor the effectiveness of related treatment protocols. The test can highlight the severity of the autoimmune response, and assists in monitoring the effectiveness of current wellness plans.
- Detection of immune reactivity in pathogenesis of neuro-inflammatory, neuro-autoimmune and neuro-degenerative disorders
- Early detection of autoimmune reactivity of both peripheral and central nervous system
- Assist in monitoring the effectiveness of related treatment protocols
Recommended for Patients Who
- Have idiopathic neurological conditions such as Cerebellar ataxia or Peripheral Neuropathy
- Show decline in brain function with accompanying fatigue or Fibromyalgia.
- Have Gluten-Reactivity, Dairy Sensitivity and/or enhanced permeability of the Gut and/or Blood-Brain Barrier
Antigens Tested (IgG + IgA Combined, IgM tested separately for each antigen)
- Myelin Basic Protein
- Alpha + Beta Tubulin
Before Taking A CYREX Test
While Cyrex is unable to provide an exhaustive list of medications due to the interactive complexities and varieties of medications and patient circumstances, the following has been noted:
- Immunosuppressant and corticosteroid drugs can reduce antibody production and cause false negative results.
- Limited assessments on the effects of aspirin, acetaminophen, and antipsychotics on Arrays 1-4 have been performed. No noticeable effects were observed.
- Inhalers can affect the results of Cyrex’s oral fluid testing (Array 1). Wait two weeks after completion of inhalant dosages before collecting the specimen.
- Unknown cross-reactive epitopes from foods and microorganisms may stimulate the antibody production in the absence of a true antigen. Cyrex has already developed Array 4 in order to recognize the most common antigens in this regard.
- A gluten-free diet can cause false negative results on gluten protein/peptide tests.
- Certain conditions, such as ileal pouch surgery, may cause a false positive celiac serology.
PLEASE FOLLOW THE TEST INSTRUCTIONS THAT WILL COME WITH THE TEST
Blood test that requires a blood sample. The blood sample will need to be centrifuged.
Returning your sample
You will need to send your sample back to the lab via a next day postal service –
Please note that samples should only be posted on Monday – Thursday so that they do not arrive over the weekend when the lab is closed.
14 days or sooner.
