What is non specific innate immunity?
Hereof, why is the innate immune system non specific?
The innate immune system is always general, or nonspecific, meaning anything that is identified as foreign or non-self is a target for the innate immune response. The innate immune system is activated by the presence of antigens and their chemical properties.
what are three types of nonspecific immunity? What are three types of nonspecific defenses that can prevent the entry and/or establishment of a pathogen in a person's body? Barriers (skin), Traps (mucous membranes, cilia, hair, ear wax), and Low pH.
Moreover, what is the difference between specific and nonspecific immunity?
nonspecific immunity are things that protect the body from various bacterias, viruses, and pathogens. Specific immunity are things that protect the body from specific pathogens. It includes the third line of defense. They include the lymphocytes (white blood cells) such as the macrophages, t cells, and memory b cells.
What are 5 examples of nonspecific immunity?
Examples of nonspecific defenses include physical barriers, protein defenses, cellular defenses, inflammation, and fever.
- Barriers. One way for an organism to defend itself against invasion is through barriers that separate the organism from its environment.
- Cellular Defenses.
