We looked into this about 18 months ago.
My understanding is that anti-Hu is a circulating autoantibody.
Apparently found in patients with sub-acute cerebellar degeneration, in
para-neoplastic syndrome. If you have a patient with this( or know of
someone who has), then you may be able to obtain serum from them, and
test it on normal brain sections.
I am unaware of a commercial source for anti-Hu.
