Autologous immunotherapy (AHIT®)
In medical language, autologous means "belonging to the same person". Accordingly, blood and urine are processed in drug form and returned to the patient as part of the AHIT® therapy.
Mostly harmless foreign substances (e.g. flower pollen) that the immune system erroneously treats as threatening. This leads to an overreaction of the body's defence (allergy). See also: Antigens
So-called globular proteins in various subclasses which are directed against the components of antigen (pathogens) and bind them together (part of the immune response). With allergies, antibodies are produced that erroneously focus on harmless foreign substances (allergens). See also: Sensitisation phase
Usually foreign substances (pathogens) that bind an antibody (Antibody Generating) and thus provoke a defensive reaction in the immune system. See also: Autoimmune reaction
Inherited susceptibility to allergic diseases. Atopy is not to be confused with allergy.
Non-detection of endogenous structural components by the immune system. This leads to the pathological (abnormal) production of antibodies against the body's own structures, which manifests itself mostly as a chronic autoimmune disease.
