Description

Novena: Autoimmune Diseases - Jun 16 (Sat)

An autoimmune disease is a condition in which your immune system mistakenly attacks your body. The immune system that normally guards against "foreign invaders" like bacteria and viruses now mistakes part of your body - like your joints or skin - as foreign, and releases proteins called autoantibodies that attack healthy cells, leading to conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis etc. And women get autoimmune diseases at a rate of about 2:1 as compared to men.

Come learn what you can do to prevent or detect such diseases, and the treatment options available.


Speaker: Dr Anindita Santosa
(Rheumatologist, Changi General Hospital)
