Hi! Good evening. I have a difficult question..at least for me. I have a debate to prove or elaborate how non-specific, innate immunity can be better than specific, humoral immunity. I have a immunology debate Friday and I cant seem to find the creativity for this one. I would love and appreciate some help!
Non specific immunity is better than specific immunity for following reasons:
1. No immune mediated tissue damage (Hypersensitivity & Autoimmunity).
2. Acquired immunodeficiency doesnt affect it
3. Always prevention (innate immunity) is better than cure (acquired immunity).
4. >90% of infections and entry of the variety of foreign particles are controled by innate immuinty, which is statistically significant when compared with acquired immunity.
Hope this will help. Build further as per your need.
hi sir.. I heard that steroids wont work in the treatment of IgM mediated autoimmune disorders. Is it true? If so, why?
Regarding the treatment of autoimmune diseases with steroid, i suggest to you refer this article: http://bloodjournal.hematologylibrary.org/content/116/11/1831.full
