Abstract

Recurrent urinary tract infections (rUTI) have been suggested to be involved in the induction of anti-mitochondrial antibodies (AMA), the serological hallmark of primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC), in view of the presence of AMA in rUTI women without liver disease and conversely of a high prevalence of rUTI in women with PBC. This prompted us to investigate whether PBC-specific anti-nuclear antibodies (ANA) to sp100, gp210 and lamin B receptor (LBR) antigens may also be related to rUTI.
