Immunology 101 provides an overview of how the human immune system works. Understanding how the human body naturally fights disease is often the first step in creating novel therapeutics. Many of today’s blockbuster biologics are modifications of our immune system’s molecules and cells, including antibodies, T-cells, B-cells and cytokine inhibitors.
