The immune system diagram above shows the events that happened after an allergy attack. You can see the process how the virus attacks the immune system and resulted in allergy. In our body, the immune and lymphatic systems are two closely related organ systems that share several organs and physiological functions. The immune system is our body’s defense system against infectious pathogenic viruses, bacteria, and fungi as well as parasitic animals and protists. The immune system works to keep these harmful agents out of the body and attacks those that manage to enter.
As you can see in the diagrams above, the two main classes of the immune system are the innate immune system and the adaptive immune system, or “acquired immunity”. The innate immune system is made of defenses against infection that can be activated immediately once a pathogen attacks. The innate immune system is essentially made up of barriers that aim to keep viruses, bacteria, parasites. The innate immune system is activated by the presence of antigens and their chemical properties.
