Abstract

Autoantibodies against diverse autoantigens have long been known to exist in the sera of several tropical infections. The introduction of monoclonal antibody technology has allowed immortalization of autoantibody secreting B-lymphocytes and subsequent analysis of these autoantibodies. This paper discusses the current literature on the induction, origins, significance and analysis of autoantibodies.
