Immunology of the Lung

Imunologie plic

To counter the threat of airborne pathogens, the lungs have their own large and complex immune system. This filters the air we breathe, repulses invaders and repairs injury. This animation shows how these powerful immune responses sometimes overreact or are misdirected causing diseases such as asthma.
