Does anyone know what this means?
from a recent blood test my ANA (Lupus test) Postive on 4/13/12 was Negative 3/10/10 I had been in remission for several years. Chromatin Antibody 3.0 . Normal < 1. 10 subtests. negative
The high Chromatin Antibody and ANA are nonspecific. The double stranded DNA, Sm and Ribosomal antibodies are neg. so it does not look like Lupus.
This was just part of my usual blood test and my question would be, what does the Chromatin Antibody info mean?

Anti-chromatin antibodies are detected in the following diseases:

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) (may be likely to develop nephropathy) - correlates with the disease activity - found in approx 75% of people with SLE and up to 100% of people with drug induced lupus.

Autoimmune hepatitis type I (lupoid hepatitis) - found in approx 20 - 50% with AH-I

Approx 7 - 10%:
Primary Sjogren's syndrome
