A subset of SLE patients with NS have been found to have no evidence of immune complex deposition or endocapillary proliferation/inflammation on kidney biopsy, comparable to minimal change disease (MCD), and due to podocyte injury caused by nonimmune complex pathway called lupus podocytopathy [5, 6].
MAbs with TSHR antagonist activity might be of benefit in other causes of hyperthyroidism such as TSH-secreting pituitary tumors [84] while SMLs and MAb inverse agonists of TSHR might clinically benefit patients with inherited nonimmune hyperthyroidism because of its ability to inhibit constitutive signaling of TSHR [71, 84].
They also demonstrated the importance of TNIP-mediated regulation of TLRs in T cell and nonimmune cell (keratinocytes, fibroblasts) mediated immunity [111].
In this work, we present a vector-host model of malaria transmission dynamics of immune and nonimmune human populations that accounts for the impact of ITN usage and seasonality on the disease.
HPVB19 infection rarely presents any symptoms in most immunocompetent individuals, but it causes several well-known clinical manifestations, including erythema infectiosum, arthropathy, transient aplastic crisis, nonimmune hydrops fetalis, meningitis, encephalitis, and myocarditis, particularly in childhood [10].
Measles is one of the most contagious diseases known to man, with each new case producing twelve to eighteen new infections in a nonimmune population, leading epidemiologists to calculate that at least 92 to 94 percent of a group must be vaccinated in order to prevent a measles outbreak in that group.

Non-immune refugees are at increased risk and have increased mortality rates, particularly nonimmune children aged under 5 years and non- or semi-immune pregnant women.
Normal immune function hinges on bidirectional communication of immune cells with nonimmune cells at the local level, as well as crosstalk between the brain and the periphery.
However, studies showing that Grp94 is able to form stable complexes with IgG also in vitro and that these complexes partly mimic the effects provoked by native complexes [9] raised the possibility that also in vivo Grp94 might form nonimmune complexes with IgG.
They added nonimmune travellers from malaria free areas were very vulnerable to the disease when they get infected.
