Description:

This learning program is designed to introduce you to the basic functioning of the immune system. The program begins with an overview of the types of immune response, including innate immunity and the 2 types of acquired immunity: antibody-mediated and cell-mediated immunity. You will then learn about ways in which the body can change and shape the immune response, as well as the autoimmune responses that can occur when the system for recognizing pathogens malfunctions. Finally, you will learn about the specific mechanisms the immune system has to recognize and destroy tumor cells.

Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to:

  • Identify the processes and cells involved in innate immunity.
  • Identify the processes and cells involved in antibody-mediated immunity.
  • Identify the processes and cells involved in cell-mediated immunity.
  • Describe the mechanisms by which the body can modulate the immune response.
  • Recognize the basic mechanisms of autoimmune disorders and hypersensitivity reactions.
  • Summarize the mechanisms of the immune response to tumors.
