Rheumatoid arthritis, connective tissue diseases, autoimmune diseases, allergies and normal development and function of the immune system
Our immune system is powerful in fighting infection, but can also specifically kill malignant body cells such as cancer cells. When we get vaccinated, the immune system gets trained and prepared for these fights. But it is believed that vaccines might also have the potential to educate our immune system to fight cancer cells.
