Table 3 Percentages of detectable ANA and ANoA in serum from the 3 populations

From: Mercury exposure, malaria, and serum antinuclear/antinucleolar antibodies in amazon populations in Brazil: a cross-sectional study

  ANA (%) ANoA (%) ANA + ANoA (%)
Populations <det ≥1:10 ≥1:40 <det ≥1:10 ≥1:40 <det ≥1:10 ≥1:40
Tabatinga-adults N = 98 92.9 7.1 2.0 97.9 2.1 0 100 0 0
Jacareacanga N = 140 89.3 10.7 3.6 82.0 18.0 13.0 100 0 0
Rio-Rato N = 98 45.9 54.1 51.0 59.2 40.8 36.7 89.0 11.0 10.0
  1. <det = below detection level at lowest dilution.
  2. ANA ≥1:10 or ANoA ≥1:10 percentages include ANA 1 1:40 or ANoA ≥1:40 percentages.
