The immune system is the body’s natural defense against infection. Through a series of steps, your body fights and destroys invading disease organisms before they cause damage. When your immune system is functioning properly, it protects against infections that cause disease.
Scientists have begun to understand the immune system. Have understood the process in detail. The researchers are generating more information about your operation and what happens when not right. Read the rest of this entry »
Allergies are an inappropriate use of physiological immune responses.
Roughly we can consider that our body is protected from the outside through the skin on one side, the other mucous membranes. Both interfaces are significantly different and that is why the allergic diseases that one finds so often expressed very different.
For there “allergy”, he must already have broken the physiological barrier that is the interface in question: skin or mucosa. It is therefore a breach of the immunity called “passive” . It is important to understand because of the way: everything that seeks to restore this passive immunity “deal with” clinical signs of allergic disease.
Like any immune response, allergens should initially be identified by the agency as adversaries that it can develop a response to allergy. The allergy is specific.
The allergic reactions are also called hypersensitivity reactions. Gill & Combs tried once to categoric. Of course this classification is purely artificial and forms of type 1 or 4 are rare, often the intricate mechanisms is the rule whatever happens. Such reactions are categorizes in:
Reactions to immune complex
The most frequently observed in terms of allergic disease are the immediate and delayed. Other forms are certainly underestimated.
W e will describe here particularly so forms immediate and delayed hypersensitivity.
The immediate allergy involves a response that physiologically we can fight against parasites and also in some cancers. This response is related to E-type antibodies .
