Immunology is the study of how organisms defend their bodies from invading microorgansisms. This study includes all of the physiological functions of the immune system in both states of health and disease.
Healthy immune systems are able to detect pathogens and neutralize them before they cause extensive damage to the body. In some instances, however, the immune system is hyperactive and fails to differentiate the body’s own tissues from invaders. As a result, the adaptive immune system attacks healthy host tissue as it would a foreign pathogen. This leads to a broad spectrum of diseases classified as autoimmune disorders where the body attacks its own tissues. Over 80 different types of autoimmune diseases are currently recognized.
At Folio Conversant, we offer a wide variety of samples from patients with autoimmune diseases. Some of the most popular autoimmune disease products include whole blood, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), plasma, and serum. Don’t hesitate to contact us with your specific requests.
