Lack of correlation between anticardiolipin antibodies and peripheral autonomic nerve involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus

Clinical Rheumatology
M MagaroS Angelosante


The presence of anticardiolipin antibodies has recently been related to a clinical complex in which both central and peripheral neurologic damage is included. A series of 27 female patients affected by systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) was tested for the presence of peripheral autonomic neuropathy and serum anticardiolipin antibody (ACA) levels were determined in each patient by ELISA. Peripheral autonomic impairment was detected in 40.7% of SLE patients and a large number (77.7%) of patients had elevated levels of ACA. No relationship was found between presence of ACA (both for IgG and IgM classes) and the autonomic neuropathy.

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.
