Genetic Regulation of High and Low Immunoresponsiveness

  • Denise Mouton
  • Claude Stiffel
  • Guido Biozzi

Abstract

The immune deficiencies (ID) may be classified into two broad categories: primitive ID and ID produced by environmental causes (nutrition, infection, neoplasia, ionizing radiation, etc.). The primitive ID are due essentially to genetic factors acting at the level of the immune system.
