Connective tissue diseases (CTD) are a group of autoim-mune disorders which are characterized by presence of antinuclear antibodies (ANA) in the blood of patients. ANA are a specific class of autoantibodies that have the capability of binding and destroying certain structures within the nucleus of the cells [1]. Although lower

Multiple myofibers run in parallel to form a bundle. Each myofiber contains numerous myofibrils, the smallest functional unit of skeletal muscle.
