Basic components of the immune system part 2

Immune 1

 

An immune response may be conviniently divided into two parts:

  • A specific response to a given antigen
  • A more nonspecific augmentation to that response

An important feature of the specific response is that there is a quicker response to the antigen during  a second exposure to that antigen. It is the memory of the initial response that provides the booster effect.
