Immune complex diseases.
Group of diseases mediated by the deposition of large soluble complexes of antigen and antibody with resultant damage to tissue. Besides serum sickness and the Arthus reaction, evidence supports a pathogenic role for immune complexes in many other inmune system diseases, including glomerulonephritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and polyarteritis nodosa.
As COVID-19 impacts families, communities, and public health systems all over the world, we are challenged to commit still more deeply to our vision of a world free from health-related suffering. The IAHPC is working hard to strengthen our networks and prepare our membership to meet the unprecedented spike in demand.
This month we are asking our readers to donate a small amount. We are a not for profit organization dedicated to the advancement of hospice and palliative care in the world to alleviate serious health related suffering of millions of patients and families around the world.
We have many visitors to this website. If everyone could donate US$ 3, we could meet the additional expenses that we are facing. Please consider donating to help our work and to keep our organization running for you, and thousands like you around the world.
