Autoimmunity involves a misdirection of the immune response towards self tissues. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune diseases identified to date. Many of them share similar symptoms, so that pinpointing the exact autoimmune condition can be a monumentally time-consuming and exasperating task.
Many patients are not diagnosed until these initially innocuous symptoms manifest into clinical complaints and sub-optimal health.
The detection of numerous autoantibodies in blood can provide more specific determination of autoimmune diseases. Autoantibodies can also determine the progress of the disease and whether or not therapy has been effective.
