Re: [Histonet] Indirect Immunofluorescence in Dermatopathology

From:Rene J Buesa

For years we did IDF studies (indirect) using serum and no disclaimer was ever used. Pemphigus vulgaris and Bullus pemphigoid and related disorders are diagnosed, and even the serum in titred for intensity, as standard procedure.

  Are Indirect Immunofluorescence studies on serum samples for diagnosis of
autoimmune blistering diseases considered standard tests in a
Dermatopathology Lab or would it be considered a highly specialized
diagnostic service (like dermatopathology, mycology, molecular diagnostic,
etc.) under Dermatology?
  When reporting results, do you need a disclaimer that it is for reseach
use only and not approved by FDA?
