Inflammation and Auto immunity

Autoimmunity is the mode of immune response of an organism against its own cells and tissues. Any disease that results from such an aberrant immune response is termed as an autoimmune disease. Some examples include celiac disease, Type 1 Diabetes mellitus, lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, graves’ disease, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, Addison’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, polymyositis, and dermatomyositis and inflammation is a signal mediated response to cellular insult by infectious agents, toxins, and physical stress. While acute inflammation is important to the immune response, chronic inappropriate inflammation can cause tissue autoimmunity, neurodegenerative cardiovascular diseases.
