Immunology

Immunology is the study of the immune system, from its normal physiological function through to malfunctions which can lead to immunological diseases.  Disorders from inappropriate activation of the immune system are referred to as autoimmune diseases and these result from the immune system mounting a defence against host cells or tissues - with the body attacking its own proteins by creating autoantibodies and causing inflammation and damage in organs.
