$197.00 $120.00
Glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD-65) antibody is useful to diagnose insulin dependent diabetes mellitus [Type I diabetes (autoimmune-mediated diabetes)] to assess risk for development of Type I diabetes, to predict onset of Type I diabetes, and risk of development of related endocrine disorders, e.g., thyroiditis. Before clinical onset, Type I diabetes is characterized by lymphocytic infiltration of the islet cells, and by circulating autoantibodies against a variety of islet cell antigens, including GAD-65, IA-2 (a tyrosine phosphatase-like protein), and insulin (IAA).
