Autoantibodies in Systemic Autoimmune Disorders

Call for Papers

We invite authors to submit original research and review articles that seek to provide novel insights in the B-cell immune response of systemic autoimmune diseases. We are interested in articles that explore novel aspects of autoantibody detection as an aid in the diagnosis of systemic autoimmunity and also in in vivo aspects of autoantibodies. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Novel, cutting-edge technologies for the identification of autoantigens
  • Novel biomarkers in autoimmunity
  • Diagnostic, clinical, and prognostic significance of autoantibodies
  • Performance and analytical characteristics of novel immunoassays for autoantibody testing
  • Engineered designer autoantigens: peptides and recombinant antigens
