The recognition of self-antigens and autoimmune disease

, : The recognition of self-antigens and autoimmune disease. Current Opinion in Immunology 3(1): 22-25

Recent studies have increased our understanding of the nature of autoimmune recognition and of the identity of autoantigens, at least in model systems. Knowledge of the autoantigens and the process of recognition is suggesting new therapies for autoimmune disease.
