The human immune system: Part 1

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The immune system protects the human body against infectious and maligant disease. The concept of an immune system arose because of the observation that an attack of measles or mumps, two common childhood diseases, conferred an immunity on the individual, the immunity being specific to the disease. It was only much later that it was discovered that a system in the body conferred this immunity.
