I propose to examine Human Adjuvant Disease (HAD) in light of these topics. DEFINITION BY GENUSHuman Adjuvant Disease (HAD) is an autoimmune condition associated with foreign materials in contact with the humanbody.
HAD means the disease produced by the immune stimulation caused by the effect of foreign material(s). Surgical mesh implants may cause autoimmune disorders. Surgical mesh implants, often used for hernia or gynecological repair, may be the reason so many patients report symptoms of an autoimmune disorder, according to a University of Alberta rheumatologist.
"In my practice, I studied 40 patients who had mesh implants and found that almost all of them had symptoms such as chronic fatigue, cognitive impairment known as "brain fog," muscle and joint pain "fibromyalgia," feverish temperature, and dry eyes and dry mouth," said Jan Willem Cohen Tervaert, director of the Division of Rheumatology at the U of A. "Of those patients, 45 per cent developed an autoimmune disorder such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. And in the patients who had allergies before the implant, they were significantly worse after. " Mesh devices may be to blame for autoimmune symptoms.
The scandal surrounding surgical mesh implants isn’t going away and new research might link the devices to being responsible for patients developing autoimmune disorders.
The news comes from a rheumatologist from the University of Alberta who believes that symptoms such as chronic fatigue, cognitive impairments and muscle pain can be linked to patients who have been implanted with mesh devices. Jan Willem Cohen Tervaert, director of the Division of Rheumatology explains. “In my practice, I studied 40 patients who had mesh implants and found that almost all of them had symptoms such as chronic fatigue, cognitive impairment known as “brain fog,” muscle and joint pain “fibromyalgia,” feverish temperature, and dry eyes and dry mouth,” Tervaert said.
“Of those patients, 45% developed an autoimmune disorder such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.

It consists of both sensory fibers (80%) and motor fibers (20%). Trigger for autoimmune disease identified: Newly identified cells help explain why women suffer autoimmune disease more often. Researchers at National Jewish Health have identified a trigger for autoimmune diseases such as lupus, Crohn's disease and multiple sclerosis.
The findings, published in the April 2017 issue of Journal of Clinical Investigation, help explain why women suffer autoimmune disease more frequently than men, and suggest a therapeutic target to prevent autoimmune disease in humans. "Our findings confirm that Age-associated B Cells (ABCs) drive autoimmune disease," said Kira Rubtsova, PhD, an instructor in biomedical science at National Jewish Health. "We demonstrated that the transcription factor T-bet inside B cells causes ABCs to develop. When we deleted T-bet inside B cells, mice prone to develop autoimmune disease remained healthy.
