Autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITD) can be associated with autoimmune gastritis (AIG), but the frequency of this association is poorly characterized. We performed a prospective study to: a) characterize the frequency of parietal cell (PCA) and intrinsic factor (IFA) autoantibodies in AITD patients; b) evaluate the development of histologically- and(More)

The aim of this study was to establish the URL (eURL) for TPOAbs, according to the National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry (NACB) guidelines and to compare(More)
Human immunoglobulin molecules are generated by a pair of identical heavy chains, which identify the immunoglobulin class, and a pair of identical light chains, Kappa or Lambda alternatively, which characterize the immunoglobulin type. In normal conditions, Kappa light chains represent approximately 2/3 of the light chains of total immunoglobulins, both(More)
