The Immune System: Red Cell Agglutination in Non-Humans
This exercise presents the concepts of immunology from biochemical, evolutionary, and adaptive standpoints. While all organisms have developed some mechanism of defense against external agents, vertebrates have the most complex immune responses capable of exquisite specificity and long duration. This affords a distinct advantage to species with a relatively long life span and low fecundity. This exercise explores the relationship between immunologic stimulation of the host with foreign antigens
