Summary

Antimyeloperoxidase (MPO) antibodies are frequently encountered in patients with vasculitis. Using a competitive inhibition ELISA test and immunoblotting, we suggest that anti-MPO antibodies might represent a heterogenous group of auto-antibodies directed against different conformational epitopes of MPO molecule.
