Diseases and the Immune System in Animals

The immune system evolved over millions of years and our immune cells have learned to successfully fight diseases with incredibly fascinating strategies. Immunizations, for example, protect like a magic shield, making the body unassailable. Killer cells defend us like a secret army. We currently know nowhere near everything about this highly complex defense system and are learning more each day.

Here we describe some diseases and conditions that have been successfully treated in innovative immunological scientific studies. We know that many more diseases exist and will regularly be reporting new findings here. But please don’t forget that these new findings on the immune system have a direct and tremendous relevance not just for animals but also for humans.
