A look at the workings of an Immune SystemThe immune system is the body’s defense against illness and disease. It’s a complex network of organs, cells, proteins, and antibodies that work together to protect us from harmful invaders such as viruses, bacteria, and other microorganisms. It can be difficult to understand exactly how the immune system works. However, once you get past all the medical jargon and biology terminology, the immune system is a very straightforward defense mechanism. Our articles take a closer look at what an immune system does and how it does it.
A look at Target Cell Lysis
The immune system is the body’s defence against foreign invaders such as viruses and bacteria. The immune system also helps protect us from cancerous cells. Reducing the risk of contracting a disease is known as immunity, which can be achieved…73
Anatomical, Physiological Barriers and Bacteria
The immune system is instrumental in defending our body against foreign intruders, such as viruses and parasites. An efficient defence requires a high number of different immune cells. The immune system must also be able to recognize…87
Exploring the Adaptive Immune System
The immune system protects your body from illness and infection. It does this by recognizing abnormal cells or microorganisms (such as bacteria) that may cause disease, and then triggering the production of specialized proteins called antibodies…78
The Relation of Inflammation to the Immune System
The human immune system is a fascinating and complex network of cells and antibodies that work together to defend the body against foreign invaders, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites and other microbes that could cause disease. The…65
What is an Innate Immune System?
The innate immune system is the first line of defence against pathogens, such as bacteria and viruses. Similar to a security guard, the innate immune system is always listening for danger signals. When it hears them, the innate immune system…70
