Autoallergy is a state of heightened sensitivity arising from education in the body particular allergen, called autoallergy.
As a rule, intact proteins sensitization own body is not called. An exception may be the proteins of the lens of the eyes, thyroid, testicles, partly nervous tissue. If for any reason the proteins of these bodies penetrate into the blood and lymph, they act as an allergen, stimulate the production of antibodies against the body's own tissue - autoantibodies. Autoantibodies are able to react with the proteins of the tissues, causing damage to those or other organs or tissues (autoimmune orchitis, damage to the lens and other). These autoallergy called natural, or primary, for they initially present in the body. In contrast, most of autoallergic newly formed in the body from its own proteins (serum or tissue) as a result of exposure to any damaging agents is secondary, or pathological, autoallergy.
Depending on the cause of their education, secondary autoallergy can be divided into non-communicable and communicable. Non-infectious autoallergy are formed under the influence of various chemical and physical factors play a role in the pathogenesis of radiation, burn disease. Infectious autoallergy are formed when exposed to toxic agents in tissue proteins with formation of complexes of protein+microbe protein+EXPN. When the immunization of animals such complexes are formed autoantibodies as to the tissues, and the microbes and their toxins. Subsequently, these antibodies react with bacteria, and with a healthy or damaged under the influence of bacteria tissues, causing profound defeat them - autoaggression.
In the process of interaction of the virus with the cell are formed allergenic substances having a strong autoalliance properties, the so-called intermediate autoallergy. Apparently, intermediate autoallergy play an important role in the pathogenesis of viral diseases and the emergence of post-infectious complications (eg, allergic encephalomyelitis), rheumatism and other collagen diseases. Diseases in the pathogenesis of which play the role of autoimmune processes, sometimes referred to as autoimmune. These include, in addition to these, some form of nephritis, thyroid diseases, some diseases of the blood.
Autohemotherapy - treatment own blood. The patient of the veins take blood and immediately introduced him intramuscularly.
When conducting autohemotherapy often begin injection of 2 ml, repeat them every 2-3 days, and the dose of blood gradually increase: 4 ml 6 ml 8 ml, 10 ml If after injection of varying doses of blood through 12-24 hours is significant General and local reactions (fever over 38o, pain and swelling at the site of injection), then subsequent injection of the dose reduce blood. The total number of injections can be from 2-3 up to 10-16 depending on the nature of the disease. The autohemotherapy can be performed under outpatient conditions.
The destruction is entered intramuscularly blood formed degradation products of protein and coloring matter of blood, soaked in blood and staying in various organs, increase metabolism, enhance reproduction and secretion of cells, the selection of their products exchange. This explains the stimulating effect of autohemotherapy.
The autohemotherapy applied with sluggish for some infectious diseases (typhoid, influenza pneumonia, septic processes), skin diseases (abrasions, eczema), abscess light, rheumatoid arthritis, infectious arthritis, dry and exudative pleuritis, and also, when ulcers stomach and duodenal ulcer. Not recommend to use autohemotherapy when nephrite and malaria. Cm. also Proteinuria.
