Ankylosing spondylitis is a condition that causes inflammation of the joints of the spine and of the joints between the spine and pelvis. This results in pain and stiffness in the neck and back. What causes ankylosing spondylitis and who is at risk? Less than 1% of the UK population suffer from the condition. Ankylosing spondylitis is more common and more severe in men than in women. It usually begins between the ages of 16 and 40 years. Although the cause of the condition is unknown, a very strong association is found between ankylosing spondylitis and people who have a blood type called 'HLA-B27'. It is thought that this blood type causes the body's immune system to attack the joints of the spine. Therefore, ankylosing spondylitis is often thought of as an 'autoimmune disease' - a disease in which the immune system attacks the body. As HLA-B27 is inherited (like other blood types), ankylosing spondylitis is much more common in people whose parents or siblings have it. What are the common symptoms and complications of ankylosing spondylitis?

Objective of the Autoimmunity Group
Our overall objective is to investigate the initiation of autoimmune diseases and to identify predisposing features of the immune response. Our long-term goal is to define novel vaccine strategies for the prevention of autoimmune disease. In addition we hope to identify factors that may lead to autoimmune disease when using conventional vaccine strategies, so that these can be avoided.
Autoimmune conditions are among the most chronic and debilitating diseases that affect the developed world. Immunological studies of these conditions in man, are largely restricted to investigation of the immune responses in these individuals after the onset of disease has occurred. Because of the lag time between onset and diagnosis, this may be weeks, months, or even years after the initial events that triggered the disease process.
The use of transgenic (TG) mice allows us to work both with known antigens, where the target self-antigens of disease are currently unknown, as well as to express human genes which have been shown by epidemiology to be important in the development of disease. Our approach is to use two systems; a novel antigen-based system to study reactive arthritis (ReA) in an animal model and the well-established model, experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (EAE).

It is characterized by pain, swelling, stiffness, deformity, and/or a diminished range of motion. More than 50 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and related conditions, such as fibromyalgia, gout, lupus, Lyme disease, psoriatic arthritis. Reiter's syndrome, Sjogren's syndrome, and ankylosing spondylitis. These conditions affect the body's movable, or synovial
, joints. Joints of the body are found at the knees, wrists, elbows, fingers, toes, hips, and shoulders. The neck and the back also have joints between the bones of the spine. There are six different types of synovial joints (hinge, ball-and-socket, and so on), but although the types of motion they allow are different, their underlying physiological structure is essentially the same. Two or more adjoining movable bones, whose adjacent surfaces are covered with a layer of cartilage, are surrounded by a fluid-filled capsule made up of ligaments (tough, fibrous tissue). The third is secreted by a thin membrane, the synovial membrane, that lines the inside of the joint capsule. This viscous fluid along with the smooth, rubbery, blue-white cartilage that covers the ends of the bones normally work together to allow the bones within the join to glide smoothly past one another.

Martin Stocks, Ph.D The human immune system is undoubtedly one of the masterpieces of evolution. The processes of gene rearrangement and somatic hypermutation allow for the generation of an immense range of binding specificities in both antibodies and T-cell receptors. Almost any foreign material which find its way into the human body can be targeted and removed or destroyed with exquisite specificity. However, the immune system has not arisen in isolation but is the result of a biological arms race, conducted over millions of years, between man and the microorganisms that can enter the body and cause disease. As the immune system has developed, microorganisms have evolved strategies to subvert or evade its surveillance.
For the microbes, one logical tactic in this battle has been the development of camouflage. If the immune system cannot distinguish an invading microbe from its own tissues, then the battle is all but won. It is therefore logical that microbial or viral pathogens should evolve surface antigens that share sequence homology with normal cellular proteins, or at least present a similar surface structure to the immune surveillance mechanisms.
Since this hypothesis was first proposed in the early eighties, a huge body of evidence has accumulated supporting the view that a number of diseases are caused by molecular mimicry. Over the next several months, this column will review autoimmune disorders. The coverage of this topic is due to the recent resurgence of interest among researchers, clinicians, and families in autoimmunity hypotheses and their possible involvement in the etiologies of childhood neuropsychiatric disorders.

92. Autoimmunity - Multiple Sclerosis Encyclopaedia
Auto is derived from the Greek auto, meaning self, and autoimmune means attackingself. The immune mechanisms differ from one autoimmune disease to another.
autoimmunity Autoimmunity is when the body's natural defences (the immune system) mistakenly attacks the body's own tissue. "Auto" is derived from the Greek auto, meaning self, and autoimmune means attacking self. There are a large number of diseases that are believed to be autoimmune. These include Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Addison's Disease Angiitis Alopecia Areata ... Vitiligo and Wegener's Granulomatosis The cause of most autoimmune diseases is unknown but most seem to arise out of a combination of a genetic susceptibility (as demonstrated by twin and other family studies) and environmental factors, perhaps infection, although no one has a clear idea what these are. In a few autoimmune diseases, such as System Lupus Erythematosus, a genetic mutation has been identified, although having this gene does not guarantee that the individual will develop Lupus. Certain genetic mutations to a self-identifing protein , the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) , have been linked to a propensity to develop autoimmune diseases. Many autoimmune diseases are only guessed to be autoimmune because there appears to be an excess of immune system activity but no pathogen involved.

Autoimmune Diseases
  • Approximately 75% of those affected with an autoimmune disease are woman. Autoimmune diseases are not contagious. It is estimated that one in every 5 people are affected by some form of an autoimmune disease. Because all autoimmune diseases have the same root cause, it is common to have symptoms from more than then just one disease. It is often hard to diagnose autoimmune diseases. Autoimmunity and autoimmune diseases were finally accepted by most doctors in the 1950s and 1960s.
What Is An Autoimmune Disease?
The term "autoimmune disease" refers to a varied group of more than 80 serious, chronic illnesses that involve almost every human organ system. The human immune system is designed to protect our bodies from invading organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. However, in all autoimmune diseases, the underlying problem is similarthe body's immune system becomes misdirected and unbalanced, attacking the very organs it was designed to protect. The systems in the body which are most often affected by an autoimmune disease are:

Autoimmunity Today, though scientists understand autoimmune diseases better than they did 30 years ago, this group of ailments is still mystery-laden, especially regarding mechanism and cause. Autoimmune diseases are the fifth leading cause of death among women. Autoimmune diseases also seem to have a genetic component, but, mysteriously, they can cluster in families as different illnesses. A mother may have lupus; her daughter, diabetes; her grandmother, rheumatoid arthritis. Research is being done on gentetic, hormonal and environmental risks that may conribute to causing these diseases. Some researchers believe that the body produces autoantibodies against proteins in joints. Other researchers doubt antibodies are involved at all: they think that the immune system's T cells or blood cells cause the inflammation.

What is Lupus?
Lupus is a disorder of the immune system known as an autoimmune disease. In autoimmune diseases, the body harms its own healthy cells and tissues. This leads to inflammation and damage to various body tissues. Lupus can affect many parts of the body, including the joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood vessels, and brain. Although people with the disease may have many different symptoms, some of the most common ones include extreme fatigue, painful or swollen joints (arthritis), unexplained fever, skin rashes, and kidney problems. Although "lupus" is used as a broad term, there actually are several kinds of lupus. The types of "lupus" are:
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus Discoid lupus Neonatal lupus Drug-induced lupus
