Antibodies play an important role in autoimmune liver diseases, such as autoimmune hepatitis (AIH). On the one hand, they are essential diagnostic markers to identify not only the presentation of AIH, but also the AIH subtype characterized by the presence of particular antibodies to target autoantigens in the liver. On the other hand, such autoantibodies might be directly involved in the etiology and/or pathogenesis of AIH. This review will reflect on the evidence of how specific autoantibodies influence AIH and will further provide insight into the necessities for generating therapeutic antibodies to treat AIH in the future.
