Abstract

The widespread use of serum autoantibodies in the practice of clinical gastroenterology, particularly in diagnostic dilemmas, has led to novel challenges in the interpretation of results. Further, the currently available methods for their detection are often overlooked factors in the interpretation of data by the clinician. Importantly, the sensitivity and specificity of these serum hallmarks are not clearly defined. Taken altogether, these observations point towards the need for a systematic discussion of autoimmune serology in the clinical setting. The target of this article is therefore to illustrate an update on the evidence available to guide the diagnostic process of several digestive diseases.
