Hi, I have read somewhere that autoimmune disorders cause inflammation of the affected tissue and that these inflammations produce the symptoms of a certain illness. The article did not explain why this is happening nor did it say one word about the prevention of this inflammation processes. I was wondering if you could explain how inflammation appears in autoimmune conditions. I would also like to know about drugs that can stop inflammation connected with autoimmune disorders.

Hi, autoimmune disorders are very serious conditions that the scientists have not quite figured out yet. The main problem with autoimmune illnesses is the fact that in order to fight the illness the doctors have to fight our own immune system. This can cause more damage than benefits because suppressed immune system can not fight against the real threats like bacterial or viral infections. The only thing that scientists know is that once the immune system recognizes our cells as enemies it starts to attack. Why our own defense mechanisms turn against our tissue is not clear. The immune system starts to produce auto-antibodies and lymphocytes that destroy the cells and as a result inflammation of the affected tissue occurs. The drugs that are used only treat the consequences of the inflammation process, but not the cause. The drugs that stop the autoimmune response are used in the hardest cases because of the serious side effects they may produce.
