Cyrex Laboratories

Cyrex Laboratories is a Clinical Immunology Laboratory Specialising in Functional Immunology and Autoimmunity. Cyrex offers multi-tissue antibody testing to assess and monitor reactivity caused by autoimmune triggers, and early detection of complex autoimmune conditions.

The Arrays offered are as follows:

Alzheimer’s Linx

  • Identifies asymptomatic individuals at greater risk for developing cognitive decline including Alzheimer’s disease or other neurological disorders.
  • Identifies reactivity to triggers of Alzheimer’s disease or other neurological disorders.
  • Identifies the early stages of neurodegenerative processes.
  • Monitors the efficacy of lifestyle modifications for Alzheimer’s disease.

Array 2 – Intestinal Permeability Screen

  • Measures intestinal permeability to large molecules which aggravate the immune system.
  • Identifies the damaging route through the intestinal barrier

Array 3x – Wheat/Gluten Proteome Reactivity

  • Identifies possible Coeliac disease, non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, dermatitis herpetiformis, gluten ataxia or other wheat/gluten-related disorder.
  • Assesses autoimmune reactivity associated with wheat proteins and peptide.

Array 4 – Gluten-Associated Cross-Reactive Foods and Food Sensitivity

  • *Identifies additional dietary proteins to which the Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitive (NCGS) or Coeliac Disease (CD) patient is sensitised.
  • Detects cross-reactions in patients who are only experiencing limited improvements to a gluten-free diet by detecting immune reactivity to gliadin cross-reactive foods.
  • For patients with resistant leaky gut.
  • Assesses if the non-coeliac gluten sensitive or coeliac disease patient is also sensitive to dairy (statistically 1 in 2 patients).

Array 5 – Multiple Autoimmune Reactivity

  • One of our flagship tests.
  • Measures predictive antibodies, some of which can appear up to ten years before the clinical onset of disease.
  • Helps to economically and efficiently assess possible tissue damage to multiple organs of the body.
  • Useful for patients who have a diagnosed autoimmune disorder. It’s extremely common for autoimmune patients to develop concomitant autoimmune conditions.

Array 6 – Diabetes Autoimmune Reactivity

  • Assists in the early detection of autoimmune processes of Type 1 Diabetes, impaired blood sugar metabolism and metabolic syndrome.

Array 7 – Neurological Autoimmune Activity

  • For early detection of immune reactivity in pathogenesis of neuroinflammatory, neuro-autoimmune and neurodegenerative disorders.
  • To evaluate the severity of autoimmune response.
  • For early detection of autoimmune reactivity of both peripheral and central nervous system.

Array 7x Expanded Neurological Autoimmune Activity

  • For early detection of immune reactivity in pathogenesis of neuroinflammatory, neuro-autoimmune and neurodegenerative disorders.
  • To evaluate the severity of autoimmune response.
  • For early detection of autoimmune reactivity of both peripheral and central nervous system.
  • Looks at IgG + IgA combined as in Cyrex 7, and IgM.

Array 8 – Joint Autoimmune Reactivity

  • Assists in the early detection of mixed connective tissue disorders and in monitoring the effectiveness of treatment protocols.
  • Recommended for patients with joint inflammation following environmental triggers, arthritis or arthralgia patients.

Array 10 – Food Reactivity Screen

  • Measures reactivity to 180 food antigens in the cooked, raw, modified or processed food forms.
  • Assists in the early detection of dietary- related triggers of autoimmune reactivity, particularly in cases where there has historically been little improvement with multiple protocols, and monitors the effectiveness of customised dietary protocols.
  • Evaluates immune reactions to foods, raw and/or modified, food enzymes, lectins and food additives, including meat glue, artificial colourings and gums.
  • Customisation of dietary protocols for the patient.

Array 10-90 Food Reactivity Screen

  • Looks at Ninety Of The Most Commonly Consumed Foods From Array 10.
  • Ideal for those on a budget.
  • Assists in the early detection of dietary- related triggers of autoimmune reactivity, particularly in cases where there has historically been little improvement with multiple protocols, and monitors the effectiveness of customised dietary protocols.
  • Evaluates immune reactions to foods, raw and/or modified, food enzymes, lectins and food additives, including meat glue, artificial colourings and gums.
  • Customisation of dietary protocols for the patient.

Array 10-90x Food Reactivity Screen (Add-On)

  • Available as an add-on test only to Array 10-90. It includes the remaining 90 food antigens from the Array 10.
  • Evaluate immune reactions to foods, raw and/or modified, food enzymes, lectins and food additives, including meat glue, artificial colourings and gums.
  • Early detection of dietary-related triggers of autoimmune reactivity.
  • Customisation of dietary protocols for the patient.

Array 11 – Chemical Immune Reactivity Screen

  • Identifies the loss of immune tolerance associated with xenobiotic exposure, which may lead to autoimmune reactivity.
  • Assist in setting guidelines for the avoidance of specific chemicals to reduce autoimmune triggers.

Array 12 – Pathogen-Associated Immune Reactivity Screen

  • Detect immune reaction to key pathogens that may lead to multiple autoimmune reactivities.
  • Determine the role of pathogens in cases of ‘unexplained’ autoimmune reactivities.

Array 20 – Blood Brain Barrier Permeability

  • Early investigation in management of contact sports-related Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Evaluation of breach of the Blood-Brain Barrier by stress, trauma or environmental triggers, even in the absence of apparent concussion or brain injury
  • Assists in the assessment of increased risk of neurodegenerative disorders including, but not limited to: multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease), senile dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy and stroke

Array 22 – Irritable Bowel/SIBO Screen

  • Identifies the overgrowth of large intestinal bacteria in the small intestine and the release of bacterial cytotoxins.
  • Evaluates a breach of intestinal barrier.
  • For patients who exhibit symptoms of malabsorption, including weight loss, anaemia or fatty, greasy or floating stools.
  • For patients who have associated conditions such as fatigue, acid reflux, skin disorders, obesity or food intolerances.
