Student gains knowledge about immune system (IS), its composition and function. He/she can describe the immune cells, their function and the mechanism of action. He/she can describe various kinds of antigens, structure, function and the production of antibodies, including monoclonal, and can explain the variability of antibodies on the basis of genetics. He/she can describe the principles of immune reactions and their detection. He/she knows the mechanisms of IS activation during disease as well as some diseases of IS, their causes, the interconnectedness of IS with neuro-endocrine system and mutual influence with the environmental factors.
Course contents:
