Ankylosing spondylitis is a type of arthritis that affects the lower back. Ankylosing spondylitis symptoms include pain and stiffness from the neck to the lower back. The spine’s bones fuse together, resulting in a harsh spine. These changes may be severe and may lead to a stooped-over posture. Early diagnosis and treatment help control pain and stiffness and prevent significant deformity. Hla/B27 Test is very important for Ankylosing spondylitis diagnosis.

People with spondylitis have a gene called HLA-B27. Although people having this gene are more likely to grow spondylitis, it also exists in up to 10% of people who don’t have signs of the condition.
Human leukocyte antigen B27 is a protein located on the surface of white blood cells. An HLA-B27 test is a blood test that recognizes HLA-B27 proteins.
HLAs are proteins normally found on white blood cells. These antigens help your immune system recognize the differences between healthy body tissue and foreign substances that may cause infection.
Although most HLAs protect your body from harm, Human leukocyte antigen-B27 is a specific type of protein that contributes to immune system dysfunction. The found of HLA-B27 on your white blood cells can cause your immune system to attack those otherwise healthy cells. When this occurs, it can outcome in autoimmune disease.
