The Immune System

  • Boon P. Chew

Part of the Carotenoids book series (CAROT, volume 5)

Abstract

The immune system plays an essential role in maintaining the body’s overall health and resistance to diseases. It comprises two branches, known as the innate or antigen-nonspecific branch, and the adaptive or antigen-specific branch. A truly effective immune defence is based on a balance of the different arms of the whole immune system. The human immune response system is very complex and carotenoids have been reported to have effects on many different aspects. To understand the significance of this it is necessary to have a working knowledge of the immune system. An outline of the main features and principles is given below, but the non-specialist reader is recommended to consult a modern biology or biochemistry textbook, or an introductory book on immunology.
