Abstract [en]

Since autoantibodies are recognized as valuable biomarkers for clinical diagnostics and prognostics in autoimmune diseases such as Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) and Type 1 diabetes, detection of such markers at improved sensitivity and specificity could be of significant interest. In addition, as proximity assays have been shown to offer highly sensitive and specific detection of multiple proteins, the technique could be expanded to applications for autoimmunity detection. In the present study, we have applied the newly developed proximity ligation assay with rolling circle amplification (PLARCA), and proximity extension assay (PEA) for the detection of GADA, autoantibodies specific for glutamic acid decarboxylase 65 (GAD65). Through the use of oligonucleotide conjugated autoantigen GAD65 and anti-human antibodies, as proximity probes, we were able to apply these proximity assays to detect GADA in a set of SPS patient samples. In summary, we have applied and established both PLARCA and PEA, as a proof of concept, for the use of the specific and sensitive autoimmune detection.
