BACKGROUND Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (EBA) is a severe autoimmune subepidermal blistering disease characterized by autoantibodies against the N-terminal collagenous domain (NC1) of type VII collagen (Col VII). OBJECTIVE Development of reliable assays for the detection of anti-Col VII-NC1 antibodies.
