Use:This test detects IgG antineuronal antibodies to Hu, Ri, Yo and Tr (DNER) antigens.
 Antineuronal antibodies serve as markers that aid in disriminating between a true paraneoplastic neurological disorder (PND) and other inflammatory disorders of the nervous system. Anti-Hu (antineuronal nuclear antibody, type I) is associated with small-cell lung cancer. Anti-Ri (antineuronal nuclear antibody, type II) is associated with neuroblastoma in children and fallopian tube and with breast cancer in adults. Anti-Yo (anti-Purkinje cell cytoplasmic antibody) is associated with ovarian and breast cancer. Anti-Tr (DNER) is associated with Hodgkin's lymphoma. The presence of one or more of these antibodies supports the clinical diagnosis of PND and leads to a focused search for for the underlying neoplasm.
