Diagnostic value of anti-topoisomerase I antibodies in a large monocentric cohort. Diagnosis and risk assessment of scleroderma patients can be supported by the detection of anti-topo I antibodies. Signal intensities as obtained by LIA or ELISA can be used as a surrogate marker for fibrosis, active disease and worse prognosis. K. Hanke. Arthritis Research & Therapy 2009, 11:R28.
