Multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease where immune system attacks the myelin sheath which covers the brain nerves. Multiple sclerosis results in disrupt communication in between brain and the rest of the body. Brain nerves start deteriorating and cause an irreversible damage. Affected person loses the ability to walk independently, loss of vision, etc. are the effects of MS.

Reactive arthritis

It is signified as an autoimmune condition that produces in response to an infection in other section of the body i.e. cross reactivity. The disease is trigger by infection or in contact of the bacteria. Arthritis usually coupled with other normal symptoms; this is called Reiter’s syndrome, Reiter’s disease or Reiter’s arthritis.

Hashimoto's disease

Hashimoto's disease is a chronic disorder of autoimmune disease. In this disorder immune system attacks the healthy tissues mistakenly. Thyroid gland is attacked by immune system mistakenly where the production of thyroid hormones is reduced. Hashimoto’s disease also leads to Underactive production of thyroid hormones which is also known as hypothyroidism.

Autoimmune Ganglionopathy

It is an antibody mediated neurological disorder which leads to the patient immune system to originate ganglionic AChR antibodies, preventing ganglionic AChR currents as well as weakening mediation in autonomic ganaglia. Its symptoms include:  Postural Tachycardia Syndrome; gastrointestinal dysmotility; anhidrosis; bladder dysfunction; Small fiber peripheral neuropathy

Sjogren’s syndrome

It is a chronic autoimmune disease where body's white blood cells demolish the exocrine glands, precisely the salivary and lacrimal glands, that produce saliva and tears, appropriately. Sjögren’s syndrome is mostly categorized as either 'primary' or 'secondary'. Primary Sjögren’s syndrome happens by itself and secondary Sjogren’s syndrome happens when another connective tissue disease is present.

Immunological Diseases

Immunological diseases occur due to increase susceptibility to infections. Sign and symptoms of immunological diseases are: Frequent and recurrent pneumonia, sinus infections, ear infections, meningitis or skin infections; Infection of lower organs; Blood disorders such as low platelets count; Digestive problems such as cramping; loss of appetite; Delayed development and growth.

Rare Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases affect any part of the body like heart, brain, nerves, muscles, skin, eyes, joints, lungs, kidneys, glands, the digestive tract and the blood vessels. Inflammation is the classic sign of an autoimmune disease. The effect of autoimmune disease depends on what part of body is targeted.

Rare Autoimmune Disorders

An autoimmune disorder results when the immune system of the body attacks and demolishes healthy body tissue by mistake. When an individual is suffering from autoimmune disorder, the immune system cannot differentiate between healthy tissue and antigens.

Addison's disease

Addison’s disease is a rare, chronic disorder caused due to the failure of adrenal glands. Lack of certain hormones produced by adrenal glands is responsible for the immune disorder. It is also known as adrenal insufficiency. This disorder can be treated by intake of artificial hormones to replace the insufficient amounts being made by adrenal gland.

Insulin Autoimmune Syndrome

Insulin autoimmune syndrome occurs due to the presence of anti- insulin antibodies in patients those who never received insulin. This syndrome clarifies spontaneous or reactive hypoglycaemia with an elevated level of total immune reactive insulin.

Liver Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune liver disease signifies that the body’s immune system attacks the liver. There are three categories of autoimmune liver diseases: Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH); Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC); Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC)

Thyroid Autoimmune Diseases

It is also considered as chronic autoimmune thyroiditis. It is a disease in which the body explicate the thyroid glands and its hormone products T3, T4 and TSH as risk, therefore generating special antibodies that attack the thyroid’s cells thereby destructing it. It produces with hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism and the presence and absence of goitres.

Pediatric Autoimmune Disorders

Pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders related with streptococcal infections explains a conjecture that there exists a section of children with rapid beginning of obsessive- compulsive disorders (OCD) or tic disorders and the symptoms are caused by group A beta-haemolytic streptococcal infections.

Autoimmune Hepatitis

It is previously called lupoid hepatitis, which is a chronic disease of the liver that results when the body’s immune system attacks liver cells leading the liver to be inflamed. Its symptoms are fatigue or muscle aches, signs of acute liver inflammation like fever, jaundice, and right upper quadrant abdominal pain.

Autoimmune Skin Diseases

The body reacts with the variety of ways to autoimmune disorders which results in a person’s immune system to attack its own cells. There are various skin related disorders like scleroderma, psoriasis, dermatomyositis bullosa and bullous pemphigoid.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2016 then, impact factor = Y/X
