So in my other thread about drug induced lupus I have listed my blood test results and symptoms. I've looked all over the internet. Can anyone give me the names of his tone tests that could be on my blood tests for lupus. I know that it is on my blood tests but I can find them. Is it the ana tests? The double strand DNA tests? The Smith r n p tests or r n p extractable nuclear anb. Any into would be appreciated. yeah

I think you must mean Anti-Histone Antibodies. Here is what I found out.

"Antibodies to histones, proteins that help to lend structure to DNA, are usually found in people with drug-induced lupus (DIL), but they can also be found in people with systemic lupus. However, they are not specific enough to systemic lupus to be used to make a concrete diagnosis."
