The immune system is the body's defense against infections. Many cells and organs work together to protect the body. Some types of white blood cells, called phagocytes FAH-guh-sytes , chew up invading organisms. Others, called lymphocytes LIM-fuh-sytes , help the body remember the invaders and destroy them. When someone might have bacterial infection, doctors can order a blood test to see if it caused the body to have lots of neutrophils.
The immune response is how your body recognizes and defends itself against bacteria, viruses, and substances that appear foreign and harmful. The immune system protects the body from possibly harmful substances by recognizing and responding to antigens. Antigens are substances usually proteins on the surface of cells, viruses, fungi, or bacteria. Nonliving substances such as toxins , chemicals, drugs, and foreign particles such as a splinter can also be antigens. The immune system recognizes and destroys, or tries to destroy, substances that contain antigens. Your body's cells have proteins that are antigens.
Immune system , the complex group of defense responses found in humans and other advanced vertebrates that helps repel disease-causing organisms pathogens. Immunity from disease is actually conferred by two cooperative defense systems, called nonspecific, innate immunity and specific, acquired immunity. Nonspecific protective mechanisms repel all microorganisms equally, while the specific immune responses are tailored to particular types of invaders. Both systems work together to thwart organisms from entering and proliferating within the body. These immune mechanisms also help eliminate abnormal cells of the body that can develop into cancer. The following sections provide a detailed explanation of how nonspecific and specific immunity function and how the immune system evolved.
Types of Adaptive Immunity. Lymphocytes can be broadly subdivided into three major populations: B lymphocytes B cells , T lymphocytes T cells , and natural killer NK cells. A major advantage of adaptive immune responses, not seen with innate immunity, is that they generate memory — a second infection with the same microbe elicits a stronger, faster and usually more effective response. See Figure 1. Adaptive immunity, also known as acquired immunity, stays true to its name. Provides defense against extracellular microbes.
In biology, immunity is the capability of multicellular organisms to resist harmful microorganisms. Immunity involves both specific and nonspecific components. The nonspecific components act as barriers or eliminators of a wide range of pathogens irrespective of their antigenic make-up. Other components of the immune system adapt themselves to each new disease encountered and can generate pathogen-specific immunity. Immunity can be defined as a complex biological system endowed with the capacity to recognize and tolerate whatever belongs to the self, and to recognize and reject what is foreign non-self. The immune system has two components: innate and adaptive immunity.
Abstract Immunity is the state of protection against infectious disease conferred either through an immune response generated by immunization or previous infection or by other non-immunological factors. The first article of this series reviewed those host mechanisms that protect against microbial invasion. Both limited effectiveness against particular pathogens together with pathogen evasion processes mean that certain infectious diseases are still a frequent occurrence; some are occupationally related with the risk to health care workers being particularly well documented [ 1 , 2 ]. Since particular occupationally transmitted infections can be prevented by immunization, this article will look at how the different vaccine types modulate adaptive responses to provide further protection. First, however, the terms active and passive immunity will be considered. Active immunity is usually classified as natural or acquired.

Джабба тяжко вздохнул и повернулся к экрану. - Не знаю.
Твое сокровище в беде, коммандер, - пробормотал. - Не веришь моей интуиции. Так я тебе докажу. ГЛАВА 20 Городская больница располагалась в здании бывшей начальной школы и нисколько не была похожа на больницу. Длинное одноэтажное здание с огромными окнами и ветхое крыло, прилепившееся сзади. Беккер поднялся по растрескавшимся ступенькам. Внутри было темно и шумно.
Неудачный выбор места, - прокомментировал Смит. - Халохот думал, что поблизости никого. Халохот какое-то время наблюдал за происходящим, потом скрылся за деревьями, по-видимому, выжидая. - Сейчас произойдет передача, - предупредил Смит. - В первый раз мы этого не заметили. Сьюзан не отрываясь смотрела на эту малоприятную картину. Танкадо задыхался, явно стараясь что-то сказать добрым людям, склонившимся над .
Вздохнув, она просунула руку в углубление с цифровым замком и ввела свой личный код из пяти цифр. Через несколько секунд двенадцатитонная стальная махина начала поворачиваться. Она попыталась собраться с мыслями, но они упрямо возвращали ее к. Дэвид Беккер. Единственный мужчина, которого она любила.
