Interactions Between Dendritic Cells and Infectious Agents

  • Morikazu Onji


One of the main characteristics of the evolutionary process is the development of highly sophisticated defense mechanisms for the survival of human beings and other living organisms in hostile environments. There are two such defense systems in higher primates: the innate and adaptive immune responses.
