Transcript of Immune System
Trying to improve your immune system has been on some people's list of things to do for ages, but there really isn't much you can do to boost this system, you can take daily vitamins and some studies show that your diet and amount of exercise can help improve the immune system
For a system that keeps you healthy, there isn't much we can do to improve its ability to work more efficiently and completely
Helper T cells are very important in the fact that they send the signal for the B cells to start dividing
Killer t cells attack the invading viruses that are marked by the antigens.
An Antigen is a virus or bacteria that invades the body which triggers the immune system.
An antibody is produced by a B cell to attack a specific type of antigen to flag it for the killer T cells.
A pathogen is any type of invading bacteria or virus.
A non-specific response is where the immune system launches an attack on any bacteria or virus that is in the area, the Macrophages are one of the white blood cells that do this.
A specific response is triggered when the non-specific response doesn't work. This more commonly know as the antigen- antibody reaction
The inflammatory response is when the tissues damaged by a virus or bacteria release a fluid that causes swelling that attracts white blood cells to "eat" the invaders.
an immune response is when the immune system responds in some way
-Medicines for the immune system
An antihistamine is a type of medicine that stops histamines, which are usually associated with allergies
an antibiotic destroys and does not allow invading bacteria or viruses to grow
A fever is a spike in your body's temperature in order to fight off an illness
an interferon is a protein released by your body that keeps an invading virus from growing or surviving
How does the immune system relate to the other systems?
The immune system relates to a number of different systems.
The circulatory system relates to to Immune systems in the fact that the white blood cells are a type of blood cell that is transported through all of the circulatory system. This was covered in the Immune system Brainpop.
The immune system also relates to the skeletal system as the white and red blood cells are made in the marrow of the bones. this was also covered in the Immune system Brainpop.
The lymphatic system is also related to the immune system because some of the white blood cells are made in the lymphatic organs. This was talked about in this youtube video,
The immune system is related to the digestive system because a lot of bacteria that is in the food we eat can get us sick. this is talked about in the you make me sick lab.
the immune system also relates to the nervous system because the nerves are what carry the messages to the body for the immune system to attack an invader.
Labs to systems
You make me sick lab
Immune responses game
nervous system lab
you make me sick game
The you make me sick lab consisted of many different types of bacteria and viruses that you must identify. This lab gave me a knowledge of hoe bacteria and viruses enter the body and what harm they can cause if left untreated. This lab related to the immune system in the fact that it talks about how these diseases manage to get past our body's defenses.
There were many brainpops that related to the immune system. They all talked about what the immune system did for each topic. Some talked about allergic reactions, and what your body is doing, and then there were others that just laid out the basics of the immune system and its organs.
The Immune reponces game talked about what kind of responses that our bodies have to different diseases. It talked about what different responses do in our body. This game was related to the immune system because it talked about what kind of responces our immune system has to different things.
The nervous system lab tested the nerve endings in our body. the nervous system related to the immune system in the fact that it carries messages between the brain and the white blood cells about what the invader is doing.
The you make me sick game talked about what makes a sucsessful virus or bacteria so successful. you had to create a virus bacteria and launch it into the game to see how well it did. This game related to the immune system ion the fact that it showed how a successful virus worked to get passed your systems defenses.
