Organs of the immune system

Organs of the Immune System

These are the organs that make up the Immune system:

  • Tonsils adenoids

  • Thymus

  • Lymph nodes

  • Appendix

  • Bone marrow

  • Lymphatic vessels

  • Spleen

  • Peyer’s patches


What does it do

What does it do?

The Immune system is made up of cells, proteins, tissues, and organs, which protects the body against germs and micro organisms every day.

The Immune system protects the body from getting illnesses such as bacteria and germs. Leukocytes are released to destroy diseases.

Germs

Bacteria


What could go wrong with it

What could go wrong with it?

The immune system can also cause problems in the body. Sometimes the immune system doesn’t know what it is fighting and it may attack the body instead of the germs and bacteria. Some people have died from this disease. Sometimes the immune system can create a disease which makes it hard to fight. Because the immune system can’t fight itself.


What do you need to keep it healthy and working properly

What do you need to keep it healthy and working properly?

To keep the immune system working properly you need to eat healthy to build up a good immune function. Immunisation can also prevent diseases by the immune system fighting germs. When you go on a holiday overseas you need to get an inoculation which protects the body from foreign germs.

When an infection is at it’s greatest


Immune response

Immune Response

  • The immune response are the steps to killing an invader. The immune system needs to identify the invader, kill the invader and remember the invader for later. These cells protect your body:

  • Macrophages: surround invader put a flag to notify the T cells.

  • T cells: helper cells and tell B cells.

  • B cells: Produce Y- shaped antibodies to attach to the germ.

  • K cells: Destroy invader

  • M cells: Remember the invader for next time.
