    Innate immunity Refers to the basic resistance to disease that a species possesses - the first line of defense against infection . Characteristics of the innate immune response include: > Broad-Spectrum Responses not necessarily “bug” specific > There is no memory or lasting protective immunity > There is a limited repertoire of recognition molecules > The responses are phylogenetically ancient Potential pathogens are encountered routinely, but only rarely cause disease. The vast majority of microorganisms are destroyed within minutes or hours by innate defenses . Acquired specific immune response comes into play only if these innate defenses are breached.  i.e. Th1 and Th2  responses

    Leukocyte margination, transmigration and chemotaxis to the site of injury or infection. Multistep pattern of leukocyte recruitment Inflammation Is a defensive reaction of the innate immune system caused by infection, toxin exposure, or cell injury The inflammatory response involves three major stages: Rubor/Calor Dilation of arterioles, an increase in blood flow to capillaries and venules. Transcription of CAMs Increase in microvascular permeability resulting in escape of plasma proteins from the bloodstream. Alteration of gene expression & EC phenotype
