The immune response is known as a physiological mechanism to protect the body, providing defense to different systems that compose it and allowing its proper functioning. The ability to keep the organism free from foreign agents depends on the mechanisms of natural resistance or innate immunity, as well as the resistance that can develop over time through adaptive by: 2.

If a cell type is either scarce or overabundant in the bloodstream, this may reflect a problem. Our adaptive immune system saves us from certain death by infection.
