The 1982 revised criteria for the classification of systemic lupus erythematosus.
The 1971 preliminary criteria for the classification of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) were revised and updated to incorporate new immunologic knowledge and improve disease classification and showed gains in sensitivity and specificity.
Mixed connective tissue disease--an apparently distinct rheumatic disease syndrome associated with a specific antibody to an extractable nuclear antigen (ENA).

Immunological and ultrastructural studies of the nuclear coiled body with autoimmune antibodies.
Range of antinuclear antibodies in "healthy" individuals.
It is recommended that laboratories performing immunofluorescent ANA tests should report results at both the 1:40 and 1:160 dilutions, and should supply information on the percentage of normal individuals who are positive at these dilutions.

This is the first demonstration and molecular cloning of a protein that appears to have particular identification with the coiled body, and it was designated p80-coilin.
Autoantibodies in the diagnosis of systemic rheumatic diseases.
Several of the antigen-autoantibody systems found in systemic lupus erythematosus are discussed, addressing their clinical significance, common detection methods, immunogenetic associations, and the molecular and cellular biology of the cognate antigens.

The autoantibody was present in high frequency in the calcinosis/Raynaud's phenomenon/esophageal dysmotility/sclerodactyly/telangiectasia variant of scleroderma and appeared to be a protein or polypeptide tightly bound to DNA.
Autoantibody to a nuclear antigen in proliferating cells.
The identification of an autoantibody in the sera of some patients with systemic lupus erythematosus that reacted with nuclear antigen(s) of proliferating cells that might serve as useful biologic markers to study stimulated lymphocytes and other proliferation cells.
