Infection, Immunity, and Inflammation

Your body employs the immune response to identify and protect itself against bacteria, viruses, and other potentially hazardous substances. The immune system responds to antigens and recognises them, protecting the body against potentially harmful compounds. Antigens are often protein-based molecules found on the surfaces of cells, viruses, fungi, and bacteria. Non-living things including toxins, chemicals, drugs, and foreign substances are examples of antigens (such as a splinter). The immune system recognises substances containing antigens and either destroys or attempts to destroy them. One of the main methods for alerting the immune system is inflammation, but when this mechanism is interfered with, a long-lasting chronic inflammation forms that is probably damaging to the host. There is an imbalance of inflammatory substances in the blood.
