R76.9: Abnormal immunological finding in serum, unspecified

You have been shown to have certain antibodies in your blood.

There are various kinds of defense cells (immune cells) in the body. Specific immune cells produce antibodies in the blood. The antibodies cling to pathogens and foreign substances in the blood, for example. This allows the antibodies to make the pathogens and foreign substances visible to the immune system. The immune system helps the body to fight and eliminate diseases and foreign substances. The antibodies are made up of proteins and are found in the blood, among other things.

This can be an indication that you have a certain disease or had it in the past.

  • V: Tentative diagnosis
