    NMO-IgG is a disease-specific autoantibody for neuromyelitis optica (NMO) and its target antigen is aquaporin-4 (AQP4) water channel. Recently, we established a sensitive anti-AQP4 antibody assay using human AQP4-transfected cells, which appeared more sensitive than the original NMO-IgG assay....

    Objective. Antibody subclasses reflect specific immunological processes and may be indicative of the underlying pathological pattern in an autoimmune disease like RA. We therefore quantified anti-cyclic citrullinated peptides (CCP) and anti- citrullinated vimentin (MCV) IgG subclass titres in RA...
