Description

Autoimmune diseases are born out of the relationship between genetic and environmental factors. Both factors can increase susceptibility to autoimmunity by affecting the overall reactivity and quality of the cells involved in the immune system. Among contributing environmental factors are infectious agents. Viral infections, by shifting T-cell balance toward Th1 cells, may predispose an individual toward autoimmunity. Viruses can also affect the ability of T-cells to detect antigens by cross-reaction (molecular mimicry)

Methodology
