Use of human skin to demonstrate antinuclear antibodies in lepromatous leprosy patients.

Abstract

A common finding in the sera of leprosy patients is the presence of antinuclear antibodies (ANA), but their specificity for autologous antigens is unknown. The aim of this work was to investigate the reactivity of these ANA toward the cell nuclei of human skin. ANA were investigated in the sera of 35 patients with lepromatous leprosy by immunofluorescence… (More)
