immune

Immune-mediated diseases are conditions which result from abnormal activity of the body's immune system. The immune system may over-react (for example, immune-mediated contact dermatitis) or start attacking the body (for example, autoimmune hemolytic anemia). Autoimmune diseases are a subset of immune-mediated diseases.
