Anti-LC1 completes ORGENTEC’s portfolio of automated diagnostic

tests for autoimmune liver diseases

Anti-LC1 – ORG 258 − 24 Alegria®Test Strips

Detection of autoantibodies plays a central role in the differential diagnosis of

inflammatory liver diseases such as autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), primary biliary cirrhosis
(PBC) and sclerosing cholangitis. By adding Anti-LC1 to our product portfolio ORGENTEC
Diagnostika now offers the most comprehensive panel of automated test kits for
differential diagnostics of autoimmune liver diseases.

Anti-LC1 (anti-liver cytosolic protein type 1) and anti-LKM-1 (anti-liver-kidney

microsome) are found in AIH type 2. Anti-LC1 may be the single antibody in up to
one third of the patients with AIH type 2, and antibodies to LC1 correspond to
disease severity. Anti-smooth muscle antibodies (ASMA), anti-nuclear antibodies
(ANA), and antibodies against the soluble liver antigen (anti-SLA) define AIH type 1.
Anti-mitochondrial antibodies (AMA-M2), Anti-Sp100, and Anti-gp210 are diagnostic
markers for PBC.

Anti-LC1 for Alegria® – the advantages:

• highly specific marker for AIH-2
• the only fully-automated test for Anti-LC1

complete set of markers for autoimmune liver diseases on Alegria : ANA, Anti-
SLA for improved performance in AIH-1 diagnostics, Anti-LKM-1 and Anti-LC1 for
accurate differentiation of AIH-2. AMA-M2, Anti-Sp100, and Anti-gp210 for reliable
diagnosis of PBC
• Alegria® tests can be combined with immunoblot Liver-9-Line 2nd Generation −
ORG 722
• fully automated “walk away” design, rapid analysis of single samples and up
to 30 different tests in 90 minutes
