Ganglioside IgG Antibody, serum

50+ booked in last 3 days


Neuropathy patients have variable sensory disturbance (loss or exaggerated sensation including with pain), weakness and autonomic involvements (sweat abnormalities, gastrointestinal dysfunction, and lightheadedness on standing).

Ganglioside IgG antibodies are autoantibodies that target gangliosides, which are complex molecules found in the cell membrane of neurons. Anti-ganglioside antibodies are associated with several immunologically mediated peripheral neuropathies e.g. anti-GM1 (IgM) with multifocal motor neuropathy, GQ1b (IgG) with the Miller-Fisher syndrome and GM1 (IgG) with the Guillain-Barre syndrome.

When ganglioside IgG antibodies are present in the serum (the liquid component of blood), it can be indicative of these neurological disorders. Therefore, ganglioside IgG antibody serum testing is often used as a diagnostic tool to help confirm the presence of these conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Test detects IgG antibodies against 7 gangliosides. The antibodies can help diagnose multifocal neuropathy, Gullian barre syndrome, Miller fisher syndrome & sensory neuropathy

Test is done for patients likely to suffering from autoimmune central nervous system disorders

Among the immune-mediated peripheral neuropathies, autoantibodies to gangliosides represent an important class of noncancer-associated autoimmune peripheral neuropathies including multifocal neuropathy, Gullian barre syndrome, Miller fisher syndrome & sensory neuropathy

The Ganglioside IgG Antibody Serum Test is a medical test that is done for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Diagnosis of autoimmune neuropathies: This test can help diagnose autoimmune neuropathies such as Guillain-Barré syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), and multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN), which are associated with the presence of specific ganglioside antibodies.
  • Identification of specific ganglioside antibodies: The test can identify the presence of specific ganglioside antibodies, which can help to determine the type of neuropathy and the most appropriate treatment options.
  • Differentiation of neuropathy subtypes: The presence of certain ganglioside antibodies can help differentiate between different subtypes of neuropathies, such as motor neuropathy or sensory neuropathy.
  • Monitoring treatment progress: The test can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for autoimmune neuropathies and to track changes in the levels of ganglioside antibodies over time.
  • Evaluation of other neurological conditions: In some cases, the test may be used to evaluate other neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease, although it is not a primary diagnostic tool for these conditions.


Ganglioside IgG Antibody Serum test measures autoantibodies to gangliosides (GM1, GM2, GM3, GD1a, GD1b, GT1b, GQ1b).

If the results of the ganglioside IgG antibody serum test are abnormal, it may indicate the presence of ganglioside antibodies and suggest the possibility of an underlying neurological conditions like Guillain-Barre syndrome, Miller-Fisher syndrome, and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP).

The test involves drawing a small amount of blood from a vein in your arm. A healthcare professional will clean the area with an antiseptic, wrap an elastic band around your upper arm to make the veins more visible, and insert a needle into a vein to collect the blood sample. You may feel a brief prick or stinging sensation when the needle is inserted, but the procedure is generally painless.


No special preparation is required for the test. However, it is recommended that you consult with your healthcare provider before taking the test, as they may have specific instructions or recommendations based on your individual medical history and current health status.


The Ganglioside IgG Antibody Serum test may be ordered by a healthcare provider when a person has symptoms that suggest a possible neurological condition, such as:

  • Numbness, tingling, or burning sensations in the arms, legs, hands, or feet
  • Muscle weakness or loss of muscle tone
  • Difficulty walking or maintaining balance
  • Reduced reflexes
  • Autonomic dysfunction, such as changes in blood pressure, heart rate, sweating, or bowel and bladder control
  • Pain in the affected areas

Several other tests in addition to the Ganglioside IgG Antibody Serum test may be ordered to help confirm or rule out a diagnosis

  • Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis: This test involves collecting a sample of the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord and can help detect any inflammation or infections that may be affecting the nervous system.
  • Autoantibody panel: This test measures the presence of various antibodies that may be associated with autoimmune conditions and can help identify other potential causes of the symptoms.
