Recognition of new citrulline containing peptide epitopes by autoantibodies produced in vivo and in vitro by B cells of Rheumatoid arthritis patients.

 

Anti-citrullinated peptide/protein antibodies (ACPAs) are highly sensitive and specific markers of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Identification of peptide epitopes that may detect different subgroups of RA patients might have diagnostic and prognostic significance. Immunology, 10/04/2013. (Also see: Rheumatoid Arthritis)
