[Chronic active hepatitis associated with anti-native DNA antibodies: incidence of drug etiology].

Abstract

Of 75 patients with HBsAg negative chronic active hepatitis (CAH), 28 had antinuclear antibodies in their serum. We have tested these patients' sera for serum antibodies against double stranded (native) DNA (anti-ds-DNA), by immunofluorescence with Crithidia luciliae as substrate.
