Proper definition of the set of autoantibody...

Autoimmune diseases are frequently associated with autoantibodies. Recently, large sets of autoantibody-targeted antigens (“autoantigen-omes”) of patient and control sera have been revealed, enabling autoantigen-omic approaches. However, statistical standards for defining such autoantigen-omes are lacking

This article may help to avoid interpretation biases and to develop guidelines for population studies revealing autoantigen-omes via high throughput studies such as protein microarrays, immunoprecipitation with mass spectrometry, or phage display assays.
