Abstract

The Hep-2 cell, and more recently the transfected HEp-2000 cell, has largely replaced tissue slides for the detection of antinuclear antibodies. However, tissue sections are still useful for the confirmation of certain autoantibodies, and are necessary for the detection of many types of autoantibody. This presentation will discuss the use of various tissues in the detection and identification of autoantibodies associated with a variety of autoimmune diseases.
