The Immune System and DiseaseConcepts of BiologyOrganisms have a wide array of adaptations for preventing attacks of parasites and diseases. The vertebrate defense systems, including those of humans, are complex and multilayered, with defenses unique to vertebrates. These unique vertebrate defenses interact with other defense systems inherited from ancestral lineages, and include complex and specific pathogen recognition and memory mechanisms. Research continues to unravel the complexities and vulnerabilities of the immune system.Chapter Outline:VirusesInnate ImmunityAdaptive ImmunityDisruptions in the Immune SystemThe Open Courses Library introduces you to the best Open Source Courses.
