All Nippon Airways (TSE: 9202), or ANA, is the seventh largest airline in the world by passenger load (IATA ranking) and Japan's largest domestic carrier.
All samples collected from CTD patients and healthy individuals were randomly numbered and were blindly examined for ANAs by both the COBAS-ANA and the IF-ANA and were also analyzed for the eight disease-specific ANAs by each EIA-based reagent set.
SENSITIVITY OF COBAS-ANA AND IF-ANA FOR DETECTION OF DISEASE-SPECIFIC ANAs
Among 492 healthy individuals, 16 samples were demonstrated to be positive for at least one of the eight disease-specific ANAs by each EIA-based reagent set.
To investigate the selectivity for the disease-specific ANAs that could be detected with certainty by the COBAS-ANA and IF-ANA, we analyzed CTD patients whose sera were positive for only one disease-specific ANA, including 15 patients with anti-U1RNP antibody, 18 patients with anti-SSA/Ro antibody, 14 patients with anti-centromere antibody, 5 patients with anti-Jo-1 antibody, and 19 patients with anti-dsDNA antibody.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of the COBAS-ANA, a new EIA-based screening method for detection of ANAs in comparison with the IF-ANA in patients who had been diagnosed as having CTD and in healthy individuals who had been selected based on strict criteria.
In the same voice, the Gringo hitmaker has also expressed his sentiment on Facebook saying, he will let Anas investigate the showbiz industry if he gets good money.
