    During the last decade, much progress has been made in the understanding of processes that lead to autoimmunity. Cellular interactions mediated through cytokines and adhesion molecules were found to play a major role in the genesis of autoimmune conditions. During this period, we learned to recruit monoclonal antibodies to manipulate these delicate processes and to divert their outcome to a path we control better. Our comprehension of IVIG (intravenous immunoglobulin therapy) has broadened, and new indications for the implementation of this promising therapy have been pursued. In this review, we shed light on new therapeutic modalities that have been published since our previous report and discuss new data concerning the old modalities.
