What is Self-defence or Immunity?
Self-defence or Immunity may be defined as resistance exhibited by host (Human body) towards any abnormal reaction caused by infectious micro-organisms.
Which is responsible for Immunity?
Thymus gland and Bone marrow are the human parts producing immunological competence to the lymphocytes. T-cells and B-cells are the primary cells of immune system. These cells are responsible for both non-specific and specific immunity of human body.
How is the immune response produced?
Immune response produced by immunoglobulins – IgA, IgG and IgM in human body. IgG is major immunoglobulin in human serum and protects body fluids. IgA is second most and protects body surface. IgM is the first antibody synthesized in human body and protects blood stream.
When will the immune response starts first in life?
Immune response starts from the foetal life. IgM synthesized by about 20 weeks of foetal life. It protects the foetus during pregnancy. Natural passive immunity passed to new born from mother through placenta. After birth, immunoglobulins are passed to new born through breast milk. The human colostrums is rich in IgA antibodies which are resistant to intestinal digestion, gives protection to the neonates (New born babies) up to three months of age.
When will the Immunity be developed fully in children?
The infant has to depend on itself for antibody protection from 3-6 months of age. The full competence is acquired only by 5-7 years for IgG and 10-15 years for IgA. The capacity to produce antibodies starts only with the development and differentiation of lymphoid organs.
Why do we enhance the immunity in children?
The higher susceptibility of the young appears to associate with immaturity of immune system. New-borns are more susceptible to infections than adults. Vaccines and nutrition play major role in producing immunity in children. It is easy to induce immune tolerance in younger age. So enhancing immunity in children is most important thing which is also achieved through adjuvant like herbals (immune tonic). Adjuvant is any substance that enhances the immunogenicity of the antigen.
How DR.JRK’s Immuno BS is useful?
