Inova introduces the QUANTA Lite ELISA assay for the presence of anti-HMGCR antibodies.  Anti-HMGCR antibodies are associated with necrotizing myopathies and are often present in isolation to other myositis specific or associated antibodies.  The presence of anti-HMGCR antibodies can help stratify patients with self-limited myopathy vs. patients with statin-associated necrotizing autoimmune myopathy.
