The article presents an abstract of the study "Clinical Significance of Anti-Chromatin Antibodies in Patients With Systemic Lupus Erythematosus." It examines the preponderance and clinical importance of anti-chromatin (anti-Cr) antibodies in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Fifty-five subjects with SLE had positive anti-Cr immunoglobulins 0.73 sensibility and high specificity.

    Fogo selvagem (FS), the endemic form of pemphigus foliaceus (PF), is an autoimmune blistering disease characterized by autoantibodies against desmoglein 1. The Terena reservation of Limao Verde in Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, is a previously identified focus of disease. Autoantibodies against...

    Autoimmune bullous skin diseases are characterized by autoantibodies and T cells specific to structural proteins maintaining cell–cell and cell–matrix adhesion in the skin. Existing clinical and experimental evidence generally supports a pathogenic role of autoantibodies for...

    In view of evidence suggesting vitiligo is an autoimmune disease, we investigated whether vitiligo is associated with inherited deficiencies of the fourth (C4) and second (C2) component of complement and with certain human leukocyte antigens (HLA). Analysis of functional activities of C4 and C2...

    Endemic pemphigus foliaceus (PF), also known as Fogo Selvagem (FS), is an organ-specific autoimmune disease mediated by autoantibodies. These autoantibodies are disease specific, predominantly restricted to the IgG4 subclass, and pathogenic, as demonstrated by passive transfer studies. In...

    Objectives. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is typically associated with hypergammaglobulinaemia but has been described in the setting of hypogammaglobulinaemia as well. The purpose of this article is to describe various cases of SLE and hypogammaglobulinaemia, review the literature and...

    Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE) is a common manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus. In many cases it appears to be resistant to various systemic or topical treatments. Three cases of resistant SCLE with good response to intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) are described here...
