Specific anti-nuclear antibodies (ANA) in systemic sclerosis patients with and without skin involvement: an extended methodological approach.

Standard algorithms for ANA identification lack sensitivity for the detection of SSc-associated ANA and should be supplemented with additional assays, especially in a clinical environment that has particular interest in SSc. The spectrum of SSc-associated ANA differs according to the presence or absence of skin involvement. Jens T. Van Praet, Rheumatology, February 17, 2011 (Also see: ANA in Systemic Sclerosis)
