Abstract

Our understanding of autoimmune diseases results from the perfect combination of basic and clinical scientific research, and the figure that is closest to the proposed autoimmunology specialist is certainly the internist. The role of B cells in rheumatoid arthritis, the immunological mechanisms to fibrosis or to tissue specific damage, the classification of Bechet's syndrome, the clinical outcomes of antiphospholid syndrome, and new biomarkers for vascular complications in systemic sclerosis constitute, among others, are ideal examples of this combination. For these reason, this issue includes comprehensive reviews in all these areas and is dedicated to Dr. Manuel Carlos Dias and his career in the perfectioning and teaching of the clinical skills necessary to manage autoimmune disease. We are convinced that these discussions are likely of interest to basic scientists and clinicians alike for the proposed translational applications.
