Figure 1: Correlation between dense fine speckled (DFS) pattern by indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) and anti-DFS70 antibodies measured by chemiluminescent immunoassay (CIA). (a) Correlation between the anti-DFS antibody titer by IIF and by QUANTA Flash DFS70. Excellent correlation between the anti-DFS antibody titers by IIF and by QUANTA Flash DFS70 was found using the samples showing the DFS speckled pattern ( ). Number and percent of the anti-DFS70 antibody positive samples are shown per titer group (cut-off = 20 CU). (b) Receiver operating characteristics (ROC) analysis comparing samples with DFS ( ) and other IIF ANA patterns ( ) by means of anti-DFS70 antibodies. Excellent discrimination between samples with DFS pattern and other patterns was observed as underlined by an area under the curve value of 0.981 (95% CI 0.960–1.000).
