Alfredo Corell's insight:

With artistic drawings of the secondary organs!!!

 

a must visit!

Secondary lymphatic Tissues control the quality of immune responses. Differences among the various lymphatic tissues significantly affect the form of immunity and relate to how antigens are acquired by these organs. Lymph nodes are filters of lymph, the spleen is a filter of blood and mucosal associated lymphatic tissues acquire antigens by transcytosis to lymphoid tissue from the "external" environment across specialized follicle-associated epithelial cells.

Cholesterol boosts the memory of the immune system

Cholesterol boosts the memory of the immune system | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it
The memory of the human immune system is critical for the development of vaccines.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

The memory of the human immune system is critical for the development of vaccines. Only if the body recognizes a pathogen with which it has already come into contact in the case of a second infection, the immune system can combat it more effectively than it did the first time. The Freiburg immunobiologist Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schamel from the Institute of Biology III of the University of Freiburg and his colleagues have succeeded in demonstrating how the memory of the immune system functions. Their findings have now been published in the journals Immunity and Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC).
