The determination of serum autoantibodies to nuclear and cytoplasmic cell components is relevant to the diagnosis of chronic immunoinflammatory disorders. Detection is based on screening methods that allow antibody binding to intact cell structures, followed by use of assays to demonstrate their antigen target specificity. The results can be used to help clinicians set diagnosis and estimate prognosis, plan further diagnostic work-up, monitoring strategy and sometimes therapeutic approach. To… CONTINUE READING
