Product Description

**NOTE: All laboratory testing requires an authorizing physician in order to complete the laboratory testing**

Histones are lysine-rich and arginine-rich basic proteins of eukaryotic cells which are found as complexes with DNA. Antibodies to histones are detected in approximately 30%- 60% of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), however their presence in about 95% of patients with drug-induced lupus is more important diagnostically.
