Abstract

Introduction: We aimed to analyze the positivity of Crithidia luciliae immunofluorescence tests (CLIFT), to compare CLIFT with ANA-IFA (antinuclear antibody-immunofluorescence assay), ANA-IB (immunoblot), and ELISA (enzyme-linked immunoassays), and to determine the relevant method to test anti-dsDNA in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
