Abstract

Autoimmune diseases are heterogeneous group of diseases that have a few characteristics in common; they are accompanied by the production of selfreactive T-cells and autoantibodies. Each autoimmune disease individually affects only a small number of people, but approximately 5% of human population suffers of autoimmune diseases. This is the reason why they are subject of multidisciplinary researches, especially in last 50 years. This paper shortly presents history of immunologic researches, and early thoughts about autoimmune diseases. For better understanding of the contents, elemental features of immunologic processes are described. The focuses of this paper are autoimmune diseases themselves, organ-specific and organ-nonspecific, and few of them are described to get a better insight into the mechanisms of autoimmune diseases. Finally, some methods of researches on animal models, and some approaches of autoimmune diseases treatments are described.
