Pages 19 - 37 Autoimmune diseases are common diseases in which dysfunctional immune activation results in pathologic immune responses that target either cellular or organ-specific self-antigens.

There is a genetic tendency towards autoreactivity in affected individuals and both innate and adaptive immune activation may contribute to disease.
