The immune system can distinguish between normal, healthy cells and unhealthy cells by recognizing a variety of “danger” cues called danger-associated molecular patterns (DAMPS). Infectious microbes such as viruses and bacteria release another set of signas recognized by the immune system called pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPS). The immune system is complex and persuasive and contains numerous cells that either circulate through the body or reside in a particular tissue. Slide 3: 2 Types of Immunity Pictures!

on and in the body that keep foreign threats out. Adaptive immunity (acquired immunity) the threat has to be processed and recognized by the body so the immune system can create antibodies specifically designed to destroy that threat. The body then will remember that threat and store antibodies for it should the body encounter the threat again.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
