Oxidative and Nitrosative Stress in Trichloroethene-Mediated Autoimmune Response by Jan Posted Fri 11 Sep 2009 4:57pm Autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and scleroderma are chronic and life-threatening disorders that affect ~3% of United States population, and are among the leading causes of death for women under the age of 65. Reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (RONS) are implicated in the pathogene ... Read on »
Green Tea Suppresses Inflammatory Autoimmune Response by Jan Posted Thu 03 Dec 2009 12:00am Green Tea by Sabian featuring Marni by Kate Melville A compound found in green tea appears to reduce the inflammatory responses associated with autoimmune diseases, say researchers from the Medical College of Georgia in the journal Autoimmunity. The researchers have been working with animals modeling primary Sjogren's syndrom ... Read on »
Autoimmunity and Free Radical by Stephen Edelson, M.D. by Jan Posted Fri 11 Sep 2009 4:57pm Autoimmunity Unfortunately, there are millions and millions of individuals whose immune systems do not respond normally to an attack. Instead of attacking foreign invaders with antibodies-substances produced by the immune system to fight invaders-the immune system components attack the body's own healthy cells-perhaps bones, joints, blood, ...

The Vicious Truth: Vaccines, Autism, P.A.N.D.A.S. and Autoimmunity by Kim S. Patient Expert Posted Thu 01 Sep 2011 12:00am My daughter, Megan, diagnosed sixteen years ago this month with autism, has now been diagnosed as having an autoimmune disorder, or -- is it -- an autoimmune disease?  Disease sounds profound but with all of her very serious symptoms for years, now worsening, it makes sense in my head, but in my heart  --- it is devastating.  We h ...

Cytochrome-P450 enzymes and autoimmunity: expansion of the relationship and introduction of free radicals as the link by Jan Posted Fri 01 Oct 2010 12:00am The Cytochrome-P-450 enzymes (CYP) are among the most important xenobiotic-metabolizing enzymes, which produce reactive oxygen species (ROS) as the result of metabolizing xenobiotics. ROS are believed to play important roles in the pathophysiology of autoimmune diseases. ROS can alter the structure of cellular antigens to produce a "neo-a ... Read on »
Gluten Intolerance-What Your Doctor May Not Tell You by Ralph S. Certified Nurse Specialist Posted Mon 22 Sep 2008 11:54pm 2 Comments The associated health issues related to gluten intolerance (GI), have a wide range, with Celiac Disease being the defining and best known aspect of that problem. However, GI can often go undiagnosed, because it does not always present with the more obvious symptoms seen in Celiac Disease (CD). GI and even CD can be cryptic, or a hidden problem, i ...

Autoimmunity and Nutrition by Jan Posted Fri 11 Sep 2009 4:56pm A central function of the immune system is to distinguish foreign molecules, such as infectious agents, from the molecules that belong to the body tissues. The immune system attacks foreign particles by creating an army of specialized white blood cells (lymphocytes) and by producing antibodies. Sometimes there is a failure to discriminate ... Read on »
A Role of Lipid Peroxidation-Derived Aldehydes to Autoimmune Diseases by Jan Posted Fri 11 Sep 2009 4:57pm A research about " LIPID PEROXIDATION-DERIVED ALDEHYDE-PROTEIN ADDUCTS CONTRIBUTE TO TRICHLOROETHENE-MEDIATED AUTOIMMUNITY VIA ACTIVATION OF CD4+ T CELLS" was investigated the role of lipid peroxidation in the induction and/or exacerbation of autoimmune response. Many reports have indicated that trichloroethene is one cause of lipid peroxi ... Read on »
A Method to Expand a Population of Regulatory T Cells Optimal for the Treatment of Autoimmune Diseases by Posted Thu 27 Sep 2012 8:00pm Description of Invention: The transfusion of regulatory T cells (Tregs) has been used in the clinic to successfully prevent graft vs. host disease and is currently being evaluated in the treatment of other autoimmune diseases, such as organ graft rejection, type 1 diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Prior to transfusion, adoptive ... Read on »
Autoimmune Hepatitis by Dr. Anshu Gupta Patient Expert Posted Tue 02 Jun 2009 4:40pm Autoimmune hepatitis is a disease in which the body's immune system attacks liver cells. This causes the liver to become inflamed (hepatitis). Researchers think a genetic factor may predispose some people to autoimmune diseases. About 70 percent of those with autoimmune hepatitis are women, most between the ages of 15 and 40. The dis ... Read on »
