Immune-Mediated Disease TimeOnline
Immune-mediated disease - When the immune system goes haywire

The immune-system is a miraculous system but when it is hypersensitive, it can lead to a number of diseases. The course will review the mechanisms underlying the different hypersensitivity reactions as well common immunosuppressive/immunomodulatory drugs used in veterinary medicine. The course will focus on three of the most common immune mediated diseases which we see in practice, namely immune mediated Haemolytic Anaemia, Polyarthritis and Thrombocytopaenia and aims to help you confidently work up these tricky cases.
