    2. 2. Introduction to Immunology Immunology stems from L.- immunis = “exempt;” Eng. = protection from disease *Protective adaptations in higher organisms to rid the body of foreign particles (microbial and otherwise) and abnormal cells Our Immune system involves the interplay between our Non-specific and our Specific Immune responses Non-specific immunities collectively referred to as our Innate immunity Specific immunities are referred to as our Adaptive immunity
    3. 3. towards modern times… <ul><li>1718 - Lady Montague became aware of a practice, called variolation or inoculation, and introduced it to Britain after first having her own children treated. </li></ul><ul><li>1798 – Edward Jenner noticed immunity bestowed to milkmaids – injected fluid from cowpox blister into skin of patient (orphan or prisoner) </li></ul><ul><li>1989 - WHO announced smallpox was eradicated from the world </li></ul>Lady Mary Wortley Montague (1689-1762) War on smallpox…
    4. 4. Louie Louie… <ul><li>1879 - discovered that old bacterial cultures of Pasteurella lost virulence. Referred to injection of weakened culture a “vaccine” in honor of Jenner </li></ul><ul><li>1881 - He applied the same technique vs. anthrax </li></ul><ul><li>… .and then rabies </li></ul>Pasteur inoculating sheep at Msr. Rossignol’s farm – May, 1881 Louis Pasteur
    5. 5. First insights into mechanics of immunity… <ul><li>1880’s - Metchnikoff discovered phagocytic cells that ingest microbes and particles </li></ul><ul><li> cells conferred immunity </li></ul><ul><li>1890 - von Behring and Kitasato discovered blood sera could transfer immunity </li></ul><ul><li> liquid of blood conferred immunity </li></ul><ul><li>Q: Which confers immunity… cells or serum? </li></ul>Emil von Behring S. Kitasato Elie Metchnikoff
    6. 6. <ul><li>1930’s – early techniques made it easier to study humoral elements [than cellular ones]. </li></ul><ul><li>-discovery of active component of blood – gamma globulin “protein” </li></ul><ul><li>1950’s – discovery of T and B cells </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Later discoveries linked lymphocytes to both cellular and humoral immunity </li></ul></ul>A: Both cells and serum contribute to immunity !
    7. 7. Understanding specificity of antibody for antigen took years <ul><li>Early 1900’s - Landsteiner revealed antibody could be produced vs. most any organic compound </li></ul><ul><li>Last 20 yrs - Antibody specificity reveals unlimited range of reactivity – also to newly synthesized chemicals! </li></ul>Karl Landsteiner
    8. 8. Innate Immunity
    9. 9. Cells of the Immune System Immune System Myeloid Cells Lymphoid Cells Granulocytic Monocytic T cells B cells Neutrophils Basophils Eosinophils Macrophages Kupffer cells Dendritic cells Helper cells Suppressor cells Cytotoxic cells Plasma cells NK cells
    10. 10. Innate immunity is the immunity that is immediately available without having to adapt to the specific pathogen that is present. It is not specific to a particular organism such that identical responses can protect against several organisms. Innate immunity is mediated by phagocytes (cell that ingest bacteria or other particulate matter) such as macrophages and neutrophils . It is also mediated by chemical compounds and physical barriers that will be described later.
