Aims and Scope: Autoimmunity Highlights

Autoimmunity Highlights publishes papers related to the diverse aspects of autoimmunity, a bridge between the clinic, the laboratory and the specialists who are involved in the complex world of autoimmunity diagnosis.

Autoimmunity Highlights focuses on pathogenesis, immunology, genetics, molecular biology, diagnostic auto-antibody tests, epidemiology, pathophysiology and the treatment of autoimmune diseases.

Special, but not exclusive, attention will be given to new challenges such as genetics, molecular biology, genomics and proteomics, point-of-care testing (POCT), information technology and communication (ITC) and health economics.

The journal will deal with several areas of clinical interest, such as connective tissue diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, antiphospholipid syndrome, coeliac disease, gastrointestinal autoimmune diseases, vasculitis, autoimmune thyroid diseases, autoimmune diabetes, autoimmune endocrine diseases, autoimmune liver diseases, autoimmune skin diseases, neurologic autoimmunity, POCT, EBM, ITC and health economics, new technologies.

Reports will be published in the form of original articles, short communications, case reports, letters to the editor and congress news. Invited reviews, editorials and new techniques of innovative importance in the field of autoimmunity will also be published. An international perspective on autoimmunity guidelines will also be welcome.
