This book covers recent scientific advances, diagnostic techniques, and therapeutic technologies in the field of autoimmune diseases. Each chapter is focused on a single family of autoantibodies, providing historical notes, origins and sources of antigens recognized genetic associations, mediated pathogenic mechanisms, methods of detection, as well as clinical utility (disease prevalence and association, diagnostic value, sensitivity and specificity, prognostic value)
