Autoimmune disorder. Artwork showing T-cells (white) attacking glial cells (covering nerves) in an autoimmune neural disorder. The glial cells are support cells for the nerve cells (blue). The T-cells are part of the body's immune system, and normally defend the body against infection. When they attack the body's own systems (called an autoimmmune reaction), it can cause severe and debilitating symptoms.
