Autoimmune diseases are a group of pathologies triggered by the disordered function of the immune system. The patient’s own immunity attacks the cells of the body, which leads to inflammation and the gradual destruction of tissues. Some autoimmune pathologies affect only one organ (for example, autoimmune thyroiditis), affect the entire body (systemic connective tissue diseases).

Features of autoimmune diseases treatment 

Immunology is one of the most complex branches of medicine. Unfortunately, in the majority of cases, the causes of autoimmune diseases cannot be eliminated. These are chronic pathologies and a person has to fight them throughout their life. Etiotropic therapy is possible only with autoimmune diseases, provoked by bacteria or viruses. Therefore, the basis of treatment is pathogenetic therapy. It does not eliminate the cause of the disease, but it affects the basic pathogenetic mechanisms of its formation. Qualitative treatment can reduce the damage of organs and tissues, slow the progression of the disease, delay or prevent complications.

The main directions of therapy are:

  • Inhibition of the immune response
  • Protection of the body from damage caused by its own antibodies
  • Purification of blood from circulating antibodies in it
  • Restoration of the structure, maintenance or compensation of the function of damaged organs

Autoimmune diseases often occur with periods of exacerbations and remissions (attenuation of clinical manifestations). Therefore, the goal of therapy is to achieve remission, reducing the number and duration of acute periods.
