Multivariate Analysis of CTD Screen, IIF, EliA ENA, and LIA Test Results.
The performance of an automated screening assay was compared to HEp-2 cell-based IIF, EliA ENA, and LIA methods.
The proportions of CTD screen, IIF, EliA ENA, and LIA positivities were higher in patients diagnosed with AARDs than in the control group, indicating that these four assays would be useful for detecting the patients with AARDs.
