Immune Defense and Repair Systems in Biologic Medicine I:

Clinical relevance of biological response modifiers in autoimmunity.

Diagnosis, treatment, tests and interpretation.

By Russell Jaffe, MD, Ph.D.,CCN

A common clinical assumption is that homeostatic mechanisms and immune defense and repair reserves are intact or can be spontaneously restored. This is not the case in autoimmune illnesses where homeostasis and immune defenses have been disrupted as marked by intracellular acidosis, impaired electron transport, and depletion of biochemical cofactors, often concurrently present. The cases and consequences for this are addressed in this article with emphasis on differential diagnosis and recent advances in laboratory testing.  Read more
