The Quantitative Response of the Host Defense System after Stimulation

Lack of understanding of the reticuloendothelial system (RES) has been fostered by the fact that too many specialists have been looking at segments of the system and too few generalists have looked at the system in toto. In an attempt to take a comprehensive view of the fundamental parameters involved in the defense of the host, we would use the term “host defense,” which can include all physiologic parameters, instead of being limited by the restrictive nomenclature that is more conventional.
