The Anti-dsDNA test determines the total amount of antibody to double-stranded Anti-dsDNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) that may be contaminating the blood. Sometimes, our immune system fails to distinguish between ‘Self’ and ‘Non-self’ cellular components. This leads to the production of an autoantibody called Anti-dsDNA. Mistakenly, it targets and attacks the body’s, own genetic material. This causes tissue damage, inflammation, and other signs and symptoms associated with an immune disorder.
