Systemic autoimmune diseases are illnesses of unknown aetiology which present an autoantibody-mediated pathogenicity with a heterogeneous clinical behaviour characterized by different clinical manifestations.

The pneumology group activity is dedicated to inflammation and repair, respiratory failure, and tissue hypoxia.
Immunology group is interested in the physiopathogenic mechanism involved in the evolution and prognosis of patients with Primary Immunodeficiencies and in Antibody production defects.

In this area are also studied the ear, nose and throat disorders as well as the chronic fatigue syndrome.
