Description

Anti Mitochondrial Antibody Test (AMA Test)

What is Anti Mitochondrial Antibody (AMA)?

AMA test measures the amount of anti-mitochondrial antibodies (AMA) in the body. These are a type of autoantibodies that attack the body’s healthy cells and indicate the presence of an autoimmune disorder called primary biliary cholangitis (PBC). It causes damage to the liver ducts, resulting in bile build-up in the liver. This causes scarring of the liver and can even lead to liver failure. This condition also increases the risk of liver cancer.

AMA test is recommended if a doctor suspects symptoms of primary biliary cholangitis including fatigue, itchy/ yellowing of the skin, upper right abdominal pain, swelling or oedema of hands, feet and abdomen and dry mouth and eyes.

Sometimes a positive AMA test indicates the presence of autoimmune hepatitis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis or graft-versus-host disease.

The mitochondrial antibody is present in approximately > 90% of patients with Primary Biliary Cirrhosis. This assay is not useful for indicating the prognosis of the disease or monitoring the course of the disease.
