Innate Immunity

  • Vladimir V. Klimov
Chapter

Abstract

The first line of defense is the innate immunity including phagocytosis, NETosis, natural cytotoxicity, pyroptosis, the formation of inflammasomes, etc. The reader can find the explanation of the pattern recognition theory, a novel concept in immunology. Clinical comments include the description of primary immunodeficiencies on the base of mutations in genes important for the innate immunity and the features of acute physiological, acute pathological, and chronic pathological inflammation.
