More Info

Immune cells are your heroes, protecting you from infections and nipping the cancer cells in the bud. The Story of Immunity tells you how immune cells defend you. What keeps them fighting fit? Which of these immune soldiers are the sentinels of the region, lethal commandos or antibody makers? Which immune cells rapidly kill anything suspicious and which act slowly yet specifically? How do they take different avatars, and how do those avatars make millions of clones to create an army? Why does this army sometimes turn against you causing a civil war? How does HIV break the spine of immune cells? How did the COVID-19 pandemic derange your immune system? What are ‘real’ immune boosters? How do vaccines work? Why is it difficult to make HIV vaccines? The story also unravels the immune secrets hidden in the dark tunnels of your guts, in the grey matter of your brain and do immune cells play a role in neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s.
