 +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]].
