Bret Syfert, ‘Big Picture’
The non-specific (innate) immune system includes chemical and physical barriers (the first line of defence) and responses such as inflammation (the second line of defence), while the specific (adaptive) immune system is the third line of defence against invading pathogens.
We’ve shown each line of defence – and the components involved – in our free poster.
