Type 1 = IgE on mast cells (anaphylaxis). Type 2 = antibody mediated cellular cytotoxicity = Ab binds to an antigen and then oposonization = Goodpastures, MG, EBF. Type 3 = immune complex = antibody binds an antigen and activates complement leading to formation of immune complexes = SLE, HSP, PSGN, MGN and arthus. Type 4 = delayed type = T cell reaction to antigen, granulomas. Tb skin test by juana

Type 1: Plain old allergy (asthma, anaphylaxis, atopy) Type 2: Antibody-dependent, cytotoxic (think of autoimmune hemolytic anemia) Type 3: Immune complex disease (like a lot of the autoimmune conditions: rheumatoid, lupus) Type 4: Delayed/Cell-Mediated (mediated by T cells, T cells are slower to react than antibodies, so this reaction takes a couple days) Type 5: Receptor-mediated autoimmune disease (Graves, myasthenia gravis) by juana

There are two special #blood types when it comes to blood transfusions. People with type O blood are universal donors because there are no molecules on the surface of the red blood cells that can trigger an immune response. People with type AB blood are universal recipients because they do not have any antibodies that will recognize type A or B surface molecules. by ericka

SLE is often worsened in pregnancy (early and late parts) unlike most other AID that actually improve!  Graves and MG often get worse post-partum, though.  Back to SLE: irreversible renal damage, can look like PIH (low Complement levels though in lupus). Increaesd mortality due to lupus pneumonitis. Increased incidence of PIH.

Should be destroyed in the spleen (extravascular) but some escape and are seen as spherocytes in the blood. Can also have intravascular (complement). Sometimes all the antibody does is coat the cells without any destruction (often drug related). Can be Primary or Secondary (CLL, inherited by velma

PIG-A gene mutations involved.  Episodic hemolysis at night- n/n anemia, might evolve to AA or AML.  CELLS HAVE diminished DAF (CD55) and diminished MIRL (CD59), decreased CD16 and CD48.  Sucrose hemolysis test, enhanced hemolysis. And Ham test is positive. FLOW cytometry. by esther
