OBJECTIVE To analyse the autoimmune response to DNA damage response factors in systemic autoimmune rheumatic disease (SARD) patients and to determine their association with autoantibodies to Ku antigen. METHODS We have screened the serum of 239 patients suffering from SARD, including systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis to detect the occurrence of autoantibodies to Ku and four other DNA damage response factors that form macromolecular complexes with Ku… CONTINUE READING
