AVISE® Lupus is the only lupus test that incorporates Cell-Bound Complement Activation Products (CB-CAPs) assays which have been shown to have higher sensitivity for diagnosing SLE than C3/C4 levels.
  • 22% greater sensitivity than C3/C4
  • 33% greater sensitivity than anti-dsDNA
  • 52% greater sensitivity than anti-Smith
This proprietary test also allows for the efficient measurement of essential markers simultaneously and has the opportunity to reduce inconsistencies in diagnostic workups and standardize test results.
AVISE Lupus has the potential to improve the diagnostic landscape for SLE by:
  • Improving accuracy by using assays with greater sensitivity and specificity
  • Standardizing diagnostic approach through conducting tests simultaneously and combining results into a single index score
  • Allowing for earlier diagnosis and thus mitigating downstream organ involvement

How does the AVISE Lupus algorithm work?

AVISE Lupus is a multi-marker algorithmic assay that delivers an index score indicative of SLE likelihood. Our proprietary two-tier algorithm integrates CB-CAPs together with autoantibody levels to provide a balanced diagnostic result with 80% sensitivity and 86% specificity for the diagnosis of SLE.

The AVISE Lupus Tier 1 algorithm tests for highly specific SLE markers necessary for the diagnosis of lupus.
  • anti-dsDNA
  • anti-Smith
  • EC4d or BC4d levels (meeting strong positive criteria)
AVISE Lupus algorithm Tier-two provides an index score and assessment aggregated based upon three components: ANA, CB- CAPs, and autoantibody specificity. Tier-two includes the specificity component to increase performance in differentiating SLE from related autoimmune diseases.
Tier-two provides an index score and assessment aggregated based upon three components: ANA, CB- CAPs, and autoantibody specificity. Tier-two includes the specificity component to increase performance in differentiating SLE from related autoimmune diseases. Key components of the assay include:
  • ANA
  • EC4d
  • BC4d
  • Autoantibody specificity components (anti-CCP, anti-SS-B/La, CENP, Jo-1, and Scl-70)

CB-CAPs Provide Increased Accuracy

CB-CAPs, Cell-Bound Complement Activation Products,  are complement split products bound to blood cells and include C4d bound to B cells (BC4d), erythrocytes (EC4d), and platelets (PC4d).

AVISE Lupus is the only validated SLE test that incorporates CB-CAPs assays which have been shown to have higher sensitivity for diagnosing SLE than C3/C4, anti-dsDNA, and anti-Smith.

 
AVISE Lupus provides physicians with greater confidence in diagnostic and treatment decisions than standard diagnostic lab tests. The AVISE Lupus test prompts early initiation of appropriate medication, thereby mitigating the potential for irreversible organ damage and associated decrease in patient quality of life.
