Summary

Anti-lactoferrin antibodies (anti-LF Ab) are more frequently found in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) complicated by vasculitis when compared to patients with uncomplicated RA. Therefore the detection of anti-LF Ab in serum of patients with RA may be useful in the diagnosis of vasculitis in RA patients.
