autoimmunity
AUTOIMMUNITY

Autoimmunity is the failure of an organism to recognize its own constituent parts as self, which results in an immune response against its own cells and tissues.

auto immune diseases
AUTO IMMUNE DISEASES

Autoimmune diseases are disorders in which the body's immune system reacts against some of its own tissue and produces antibodies to attack itself.

auto antibodies
AUTO ANTIBODIES

Auto antibodies are the antibodies that attack its own cells, tissues, and/or organs. This causes inflammation and damage and it leads to autoimmune disorders.

prominent examples
PROMINENT EXAMPLES
  • COELIAC DISEASE
  • DIABETES MELLITUS TYPE 1 (IDDM),
  • SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS (SLE),
  • SJÖGREN'S SYNDROME
  • CHURG-STRAUSS SYNDROME
  • HASHIMOTO'S THYROIDITIS
  • GRAVES' DISEASE
  • RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS (RA).
history
HISTORY

Paul Ehrlich, at the beginning of the twentieth century, proposed the concept of horror autotoxicus, where in a 'normal' body does not mount an immune response against its own tissues. Thus, any autoimmune response was perceived to be abnormal and postulated to be connected with human disease.

description
DESCRIPTION

The immune system is a network of organs, cells and molecules that work together to defend the body against attacks by foreign (not of the body) invaders such as germs, bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi.

slide9

In general terms, when antibodies are directed against the body's own cells, or when B and T cells attack and destroy their own body's cells and not foreign antigens, an autoimmune disorder can result

slide10

The autoimmune process can have varied consequences. For example,

  • slow destruction of a particular type of cell or tissue.
  • stimulation of an organ into excessive growth or interference in its functions.

  • PANCREAS
  • ADRENAL GLANDS
  • RED BLOOD CELLS
  • CONNECTIVE TISSUES
classification of autoimmune disease
CLASSIFICATION OF AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE

Autoimmune disorders fall into two general types:

  • Systemic Autoimmune Diseases
  • Localized Autoimmune Diseases
systemic autoimmune diseases
Systemic Autoimmune Diseases

Non-organ-specific or Systemic Autoimmune Diseases are those that damage many organs .

For example,

  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA),
  • Sjogren's syndrome
  • Lupus Erythematosus
  • Scleroderma,
localized autoimmune diseases
Localized Autoimmune Diseases

Organ-specific or Localized Autoimmune Diseases are those where only a single organ or tissue is directly damaged by the autoimmune process .For example

  • Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus,
  • Hashimoto's thyroiditis,
  • Celiac disease,
  • Crohn's disease.
slide15

In some cases, a person may have more than one autoimmune disease; for example, persons with Addison's disease often have type 1 diabetes, while persons with sclerosing cholangitis often have ulcerative colitis.

slide16

In some cases, the antibodies may not be directed at a specific tissue or organ; for example, antiphospholipid antibodies can react with clotting proteins in the blood, leading to formation of blood clots within the blood vessels (thrombosis).

autoimmunity level
AUTOIMMUNITY LEVEL

High level of autoimmunity is unhealthy, a low level of autoimmunity may actually be beneficial.

causes
CAUSES

The cause of autoimmune diseases is unknown, but it appears that there is an inherited predisposition to develop autoimmune disease in many cases.

slide19

In a few types of autoimmune disease (such as rheumatic fever), a bacteria or virus triggers an immune response, and the antibodies or T-cells attack normal cells because they have some part of their structure that resembles a part of the structure of the infecting microorganism.

risk factors
RISK FACTORS:
  • Genetic factor ,
  • Environmental toxins,
  • Gender,
  • Heredity,
  • viruses,
  • Drugs,
  • Stress,
  • poor diet,
  • lack of exercise,
  • lack of sleep,
  • abuse of alcohol and use of tobacco.
slide21

Genetic Factors:

Three main sets of genes are suspected in many autoimmune diseases. These genes are related to:

  • Immunoglobulins
  • T-cell receptors
  • The major histocompatibility complexes(MHC).
slide22

Gender:

A person's sex also seems to have a major role in the development of autoimmunity.

  • most of the known autoimmune diseases tend to show a female preponderance.
  • Ankylosing spondylitis,male preponderance
  • Crohn's disease, males and females
symptoms of autoimmune diseases
SYMPTOMS OF AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES.

The symptoms and signs vary by specific autoimmune disease. The common symptoms are:

  • Fatigue
  • Affect on Weight
  • Muscle pain
  • Insomnia(not able to sleep)
  • Inflammation
diagnosis of autoimmune diseases
DIAGNOSIS OF AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES.
  • Autoantibody blood tests
  • blood tests to measure inflammation and organ function
  • clinical presentation
  • X-rays
treatment of autoimmune diseases
TREATMENT OF AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES
  • Immunosuppressant drugs

- to inhibit the activity of the immune system.

  • Helminthic therapy

-inoculation of the patient with specific parasitic intestinal nematodes

  • Radiation of the lymph nodes and plasmapheresis
  • Treatment for the deficiency
  • for example, insulin injections in the case of diabetes.
treatment of autoimmune diseases26
Treatment of Autoimmune Diseases
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs

-to reduce inflammation and pain.

  • Corticosteroids

- to reduce inflammation. They are sometimes used to treat an acute flare of symptoms.

  • Pain-killing medication

- such as paracetamol and codeine.
