Smith Ab and Sm/RNP Ab Reference Ranges:
<20 Units Negative
20-39 Units Weak Positive
40-80 Units Moderate Positive
>80 Units Strong Positive
A positive Sm/RNP Ab result indicates the presence of antibodies reactive with the Smith (Sm) protein and/or ribonuclear protein (RNP). This Sm/RNP assay cannot distinguish between Anti-Sm and Anti-RNP activity, thus should be considered with the Sm Ab test result to determine clinical significance.
Please note reference range changes: Sm/RNP Ab as of 07/11/2017, and Smith Ab as of 07/24/2017.
