In this paper we consider a general system of reaction-diffusion equations and introduce a comparison method to obtain qualitative properties of its solutions. The comparison method is applied to study the stability of homogeneous steady states and the asymptotic behavior of the solutions of different systems with a chemotactic term. The theoretical results obtained are slightly modified to be applied to the problems where the systems are coupled in the differentiated terms and / or contain nonlocal terms. We obtain results concerning the global stability of the steady states by comparison with solutions of Ordinary Differential Equations.
