INNATE IMMUNITY

Innate immunity definition and importance

The innate immune system acts early to combat infection


Innate immunity attempts to block pathogen replication before disease onset by mounting a rapid, non-specific response against a broad range of pathogens. The innate immune response also activates adaptive immunity, which takes longer to develop but provides a highly specific response to pathogens.
