Clinical Usefullness

Usually the immune system is able to discriminate between foreign substances ("non-self") and the body’s own cells ("self"). It produces antibodies only when it perceives that it has been exposed to a threat ("non-self"), such as bacteria or viruses. However, when the immune system ceases to recognize one or more of the body's normal constituents as "self," it may produce autoantibodies that react with its own cells, tissues, and/or organs. This may cause inflammation, damage, and/or dysfunction of organs or systems, leading to signs and symptoms of autoimmune disorders.
