Anticentromere antibody. Clinical Correlations and association with favorable prognosis in patients with scleroderma variants

Arthritis and Rheumatism
G A McCartyF A Barada


The presence of antibody to the chromosomal centromere appears to be associated with a subset of patients with the limited CREST form of scleroderma. To further define the prognostic value of this autoantibody, 27 patients, who were identified as having anticentromere antibody by screening antinuclear antibody tests using HEp-2 cell substrates, were followed clinically and serologically for 2 years. The presence of anticentromere antibody is common in the limited CREST forms of systemic sclerosis, and it is often the only autoantibody specificity present in the sera of patients with the CREST variant. When compared with other patients who exhibit speckled or nucleolar antinuclear antibody patterns, those with anticentromere antibody had significantly less major organ system involvement.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
