A panel of autoantibodies has been tested in serum samples and cryoprecipitates of 14 patients affected by essential mixed cryoglobulinemia (EMC) as well as in 12 subjects with secondary non-lupoid cryoglobulinemia (SC). Three out of 14 patients affected by EMC were ANA-positive (2 at 1:40 dilution and one at 1:80 dilution). Two out of 12 patients with SC were ANA-positive (both at 1:40 dilution). No autoantibodies were found in the cryoprecipitates. These data seem to confirm some previous observations and do not indicate a role of autoantibodies in the cryoprecipitate formation.
