Fund Research through the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association to Improve Treatments for Diseases of the Immune System
The following diseases are all thought to have a common link -- they all involve dysfunction of the immune system.
Research that leads to better understanding of the immune system will profoundly impact and improve the treatments of many of the following diseases.
While treatments continue to improve, we have a long way to go to effectively treat these diseases and without debilitating side effects
Currently, some of the most often used immunosuppressive and immunomodulatory treatments include Humira, Enbrel, Remicade, Methotrexate, Purinethol, Imuran and the steroid Prednisone.
Please show your support for improving research in this field by joining our cause. Feel free to provide financial support through this site or www.AARDA.org
The following are thought to be Autoimmune Diseases:
Active Chronic Hepatitis
Autoimmune Atrophic Gastritis
(Type I) Diabetes

Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis
Scleroderma - CREST
Systemic Lupus Erythematosis
