Bullous pemphigoid (BP) autoantibody levels are generally elevated in patients with BP but can be present nonspecifically in patients without BP.

Bullous pemphigoid, a dermatosis of the elderly. Bullous pemphigoid is the most common autoimmune bullous disease and affects almost exclusively the elderly. Its occurrence is related to the presence ...
Pathophysiologically, bullous autoimmune dermatoses are caused by autoantibodies directed against adhesion molecules or structural proteins of the skin and mucous membranes, clinically resulting in bl...

Bullous pemphigoid, the most common autoimmune blistering disease of the skin in adults, is caused by autoantibodies against hemidesmosomal adhesion proteins (BP180/type XVII collagen and BP230), lead...
Autoimmune bullous dermatoses are a group of diseases with chronic course. They are provoked by the production of autoantibodies against the dermal-epidermal junction or against the inter-...
Bullous pemphigoid affects mainly elderly patients. It is often associated with neurologic disorders, which represent a major risk factor of the disease
Bullous pemphigoid is the most common subepidermal autoimmune blistering disease of the skin in European countries, including France. Immunologically, BP is characterized by the productio...
The aim of the study is to assess that it will be possible to control with a single cycle of rituximab patient with bullous pemphigoid.
Autoimmune bullous dermatoses include pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid, pemphigoid gestationis, linear IgA dermatosis, mucous membrane, lichen pemphigoid, anti-p200 pemphigoid, epidermolysis ...
An itching, autoimmune, bullous SKIN disease that occurs during the last two trimesters of PREGNANCY and PUERPERIUM. It also affects non-pregnant females with tissue of PLACENTA origin, such as CHORIOCARCINOMA; or HYDATIDIFORM MOLE. It exhibits antigenic and clinical similarity to bullous pemphigoid (PEMPHIGOID, BULLOUS). This disease does not involve herpes viruses (old name, herpes gestationis).
A chronic and relatively benign subepidermal blistering disease usually of the elderly and without histopathologic acantholysis.
Autoimmune disease characterized by subepidermal blisters and linear deposition of autoantibodies at the dermoepidermal junction. The accumulated autoantibodies are of IMMUNOGLOBULIN A and occasionally IMMUNOGLOBULIN G classes against epidermal BASEMENT MEMBRANE proteins. The dermatosis is sometimes associated with malignancies and use of certain drugs (e.g., VANCOMYCIN).
A chronic blistering disease with predilection for mucous membranes and less frequently the skin, and with a tendency to scarring. It is sometimes called ocular pemphigoid because of conjunctival mucous membrane involvement.
Autoantibodies directed against cytoplasmic constituents of POLYMORPHONUCLEAR LEUKOCYTES and/or MONOCYTES. They are used as specific markers for WEGENER GRANULOMATOSIS and other diseases, though their pathophysiological role is not clear. ANCA are routinely detected by indirect immunofluorescence with three different patterns: c-ANCA (cytoplasmic), p-ANCA (perinuclear), and atypical ANCA.
