The article presents an abstract of the study "Antibodies to Heat Shock Protein 70 in Autoimmune Diseases." Researchers have measured IgG anti heat shock protein (Hsp) 70 in 104 samples from blood donors, patients with systemic autoimmune diseases (AD), patients with non-systemic AD, and patients with antinuclear antibodies (ANA) positive but non-AD. Researchers concluded that anti Hsp 70 antibodies are elevated in patients diseases producing ANA.

    Autoimmune depigmentation of the skin, vitiligo, afflicts a considerable number of people, yet no effective therapeutic modalities have been developed to treat it. In part, this can be attributed to the obscure etiology of the disease, which has begun to reveal itself only recently. It is known...
