Radiobinding Assay (RBA)
In diabetic children <14 years of age (identified by urine screening), the frequency of insulin antibodies (IAA) and islet cell antibodies (ICA) are 43-56% and 84%, respectively; the frequency of both is 40%, and the frequency of one or both is 88%.4 In the same study, cohorts using ICA, GAD-65 antibodies and IAA, sensitivities and specificities are 93% and 93% for any positive, respectively, and 39% and >99%, respectively, for all positives. IAA are found at onset of diabetes in only 4% of adults, but are universally present in diabetic children <4 years old at onset. The predictive value of both tests (ICA and IAA) is 60-77% in first-degree relatives of patients with IDDM for the development of IDDM in 5-10 years.
