|+||Immunotolerance - recognition of "self", the phenomenon by which the [[immune system]] normally suppresses immunological responses to [[cell]]s of the body, ie self-[[antigen]]s. In diseases such as [[rheumatoid arthritis]], this mechanism is faulty, and the body is attacked by its own [[immune system]].|
