In brief: Autoimmune

People with lupus develop auto antibodies - antibodies against self - thus auto immune.
Our patients make antibodies against their own tissue. Thus we see antibodies against cells, cell particles both inside and outside the nucleus of the cell. This can initiate immune responses against the self tissue and depending on the mechanism we can see changes around the body.
