Autoimmune Diseases

auto-immune

Autoimmunity means reflexive attack by the immune system on its host. Autoimmune conditions are characterized by lymphocytic, mononuclear cellular infiltrates in areas of active disease. Person-specific determinations of lymphocyte response assays (hsLRA) open a more advanced, comprehensive, functional, ex vivo system of tests.

Chronic autoimmune conditions are usually characterized by inflammation, focal or systemic swelling, pain, and cumulative repair deficit.

Examples of autoimmune conditions range from diabetes and Addison’s syndrome to thyroiditis and lupus (SLE), from eczema and psoriasis to allergic migraine headaches and multiple sclerosis, from asthma and pneumonitis to myocarditis and pericarditis, from rheumatoid arthritis to connective tissue syndromes, from glomerulonephritis to interstitial cystitis, from ulcerative colitis (UC) to regional enteritis (RE) to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), from Sjogren’s syndrome to hepatitis, from uveitis to vasculitis, from myofascial pain syndromes to fibromyalgia (FM), from mitochondrial dysfunction syndrome (MDS) to chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS).
