Diagnostic Criteria in Autoimmune Diseases
According to the Autoimmune Diseases Coordinating Committee (ADCC),
between 14.7 and 23.5 million people in the USA – up to eight percent of
the population are affected by autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases
are a family of more than 100 chronic, and often disabling, illnesses
that develop when underlying defects in the immune system lead the body
to attack its own organs, tissues, and cells. In Handbook of Autoimmune
Disease, the editors have gathered in a comprehensive handbook a
critical review, by renowned experts, of more than 100 autoimmune
diseases, divided into two main groups, namely systemic and
organ-specific autoimmune diseases. A contemporary overview of these
conditions with special emphasis on diagnosis is presented. Each chapter
contains the essential information required by attending physicians as
well as bench scientists to understand the definition of a specific
autoimmune disease, the
criteria, and the treatment
