Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies in rheumatoid arthritis. Characterization and clinical correlations.
TLDR
ANCA in RA patients are directed toward diverse cytoplasmic antigens of the neutrophil, in particular, LF and other, not yet fully characterized polypeptides.
Substrate specificity of antinuclear antibodies in scleroderma.
TLDR
Titans of sera reacting positively on 2 or 3 substrates were mostly in agreement, although some sera both in systemic scleroderma and SLE showed higher titers on monkey esophagus, and the IF pattern was usually the same regardless of the substrate.
Serum antibody in rheumatoid arthritis reactive with a cell-associated antigen. Demonstration by precipitation and immunofluorescence.
TLDR
Indirect immunofluorescence with Wil2 cells as substrate was used to demonstrate RAP and to determine morphologically the nature of the reactive cellular antigen, and IF was employed to demonstrate that RAP is immunoglobulin belonging to IgG and IgM classes and not to IgA or IgD.
Antinuclear antibodies. I. Patterns of nuclear immunofluorescence.
TLDR
Fifteen separate and distinct nuclear immun ofluorescent patterns have been identified by indirect immunofluorescence employing human spleen touch imprints as substrate, and these patterns have to be differentiated from those specifically associated with certain diseases.
Immunological Aspects of Skin Diseases
[Evaluation of two different antigen preparations in the fluorescent antibody test for antinuclear antibodies (ANA). A comparison between two laboratories].
TLDR
Two different antigen preparations of human origin (sectioned thyroid cells and blood smears) were compared in the indirect immunofluorescence (IF) test for antinuclear antibodies (ANA) and all sera showing speckled staining with thyroid sections were negative with blood smear.
Epstein-Barr virus (herpes-type virus) antibodies in connective tissue diseases.
TLDR
Recognizing antibody activity not specific to EBV infection will be useful to workers employing these tests in future seroepidemiologic studies.
