Abstract At the 12th International Workshop on Autoantibodies and Autoimmunity (IWAA), organized in August 2014 in São Paulo, Brazil, more than 300 autoimmunologists gathered to discuss the status of many novel autoantibodies in clinical practice, and to envisage additional value of autoantibodies in terms of prediction, prognosis and prevention of autoimmune diseases. Two separate workshops were dedicated to standardization and harmonization of autoantibody testing and nomenclature: International Autoantibody Standardization (IAS) and International Consensus on ANA Patterns (ICAP). It was apparent to all in attendance that the discovery and elucidation of novel autoantibodies did not slow down, but that multiple challenges lay ahead of us in order to apply these discoveries to effective and efficient clinical practice. Importantly, this requires optimal bidirectional communication between clinicians and laboratory specialists, as well as close collaboration with the diagnostic industry. This paper is a report on the 12th IWAA in combination with a review of the recent developments in the field of autoantibodies. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
