Twenty-one cases of pemphigus were studied regarding the correlation of disease activity and titre of circulating intercellular antibodies. The correlation was good in six, poor in seven, and fairly good in eight.
There was a tendency for antibody titres to parallel disease activity, but in general we found it of little value in clinical management as a guide to therapy or predicting clinical relapses.
