By Kass, Dr Anita; Translated by McCullough, Alison; By Jelstad, Jorgen
Part memoir, part medical mystery, this page-turning debut shares the remarkable story of how one doctor discovered a potential treatment for autoimmune diseases. More than 20 million Americans have autoimmune diseases, which occur when the immune system attacks the body. The roo...t cause of these understudied illnesses is unknown. The Immune Mystery shares the deeply personal story of doctor and researcher Anita Kass's quest to solve the autoimmune puzzle. In lucid prose, Kass begins with the premature death of her mother, who developed rheumatoid arthritis shortly after giving birth. Only thirteen at the time, Kass vowed to study the illness and one day find a cure. She then describes her decades-long pursuit of potentially revolutionary research into what causes autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and multiple sclerosis and how to treat them. Her discovery eventually earns her a record-breaking pharmaceutical deal. A compelling blend of incredible determination and cutting-edge science, The Immune Mystery introduces a powerful new voice in medical storytelling.Read more
