The T cell as a therapeutic target

Part of the Inflammation and Drug Therapy Series book series (IDTH, volume 3)


There is a constellation of diseases whose pathology is a direct consequence of the immune response. Since there has been a failure to identify either an infectious aetiology or a pathognomonic immune abnormality, these diseases are characterized as being autoimmune. Rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, myasthenia gravis and multiple sclerosis are all well-known examples. An important therapeutic approach to these diseases is the selective inhibition of immune activity.
