Immunology and Diseases

Immunodeficiency’s can be caused in a number of ways, including age, obesity, and alcoholism. In developing countries, malnutrition is a common cause. AIDS is an example of an acquired immunodeficiency. In some cases, immunodeficiency’s can be inherited, for instance, in chronic granulomatous disease where phagocytes do not function properly. The system must be ready to tell self from non-self. An antigen is any substance which will spark an immune reaction. In many cases, an antigen may be a bacterium, fungus, virus, toxin, or foreign body. But it also can be one among our own cells that's faulty or dead. Initially, a variety of cell types works together to acknowledge the antigen as an invader. As infection and immune response are so intricately intertwined, this book is effective reading to anyone curious about infectious diseases in humans. Maybe in the future prions will have to be included as a new type of infectious agent whose rise we are just now witnessing. (Information on prion pathology is still hotly debated, and data on routes of transmission and immune system reactions are still scarce.)
