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