Abstract

How do people manage to live for a normal life span if they are constantly exposed to the agents of infectious disease? How do people recover from disease? How is it that those who have recovered from certain diseases need not fear another attack? How does vaccination give long-lasting protection from a given infectious disease? What is the major problem that must be overcome before organ transplant surgery can be successful? The answer to each of these questions is to be found in our understanding of the human immune system.
