Immune System Concept Analysis Diagram
This immune system concept analysis diagram depicts a network of biological processes that keep an organism healthy. It detects and responds to various pathogens, including viruses and parasitic worms, cancer cells, and objects like wood splinters, distinguishing them from the organism's healthy tissue. Many species have two major immune system subsystems. The innate immune system has a predetermined response to various situations and stimuli. By learning to recognize molecules previously encountered, the adaptive immune system provides a tailored response to each stimulus. This immune system concept analysis diagram shows that both use molecules and cells to perform their functions.
