Among these cytokines, IL-17 is capable of inducing the synthesis of other cytokines and chemokines, resulting in autoimmune responses
22) The long-term immunosuppressive effects of antipsychotics may inhibit putative autoimmune responses
against neurological sites and could, thus, act synergistically with the direct antagonistic action on brain receptors for the evident improvement of psychotic symptoms.
Certain foods may trigger an autoimmune response
in people with RA, according to Manno, but because trigger foods vary from person to person, she advises keeping a food log.
The HLA DQ2 or DQ8, found in 30% to 40% of people, is necessary for the celiac disease autoimmune response
, but recent genome-wide association studies have identified dozens of genetic risk loci, indicating that celiac disease is a complex, polygenetic immune-based disorder (Lebwohl et al.
However, the Australian researchers did not find macrophages or lymphocytes, two types of cells found in older MS lesions that are typically related to autoimmune responses
He is a leader in research that aims to understand how and why the immune system attacks the body's own tissues and organs, and to develop drug strategies to eliminate the autoimmune response
without producing severe side effects.
The Broad Institute sketched out the regulatory network of genes that governs this autoimmune response
An autoimmune response
can be determined by measuring the presence of a fluorescent "antigen" (turmeric is used as the fluorescent agent).
Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune response
where the body attacks its own tissues.
The present article observed the effects of chicken collagen II (CII), the recombinant polymerized human collagen II 250-270 (rhCII 250-270) peptide and synthesized human CII 250-270 (syCII 250-270) peptide on the induction of antigen-specific autoimmune response
in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and on the specific cellular and humoral immune response in collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) and mice fed with CII (250-270) prior to immunization with CII.
MSCs were found to block the formation of scar tissue by suppressing the autoimmune response
, which would otherwise cause permanent damage to the nerves.
It is believed that AA is caused by T cell-mediated autoimmune response
and increased frequency of other autoimmune diseases in persons suffering from AA supports this hypothesis.
28) It has been proposed that EBV-induced peripheral [alpha]B-crystallin expression may, therefore, drive a pathogenic autoimmune response
The doctors think it was an autoimmune response
, where my own immune system attacked my lungs, but they say it's idiopathic, which means it's unknown.
Depending on the disease, this autoimmune response
may cause damage to body tissues, or changes in the growth or functioning of organs.
