Immunology and Serology

Immunology (1)In studying Immunology and Serology, it gives us a better understanding on how our body fights off pathogens. To distinguish the two: Immunology is the study of the body’s immune system and its functions and disorders while Serology is the study of blood serum or the clear fluid that separates when blood clots.

Basically, ImmunoSero is basically about how our body handle antigens. Our body’s immune system is composed of antibodies that fights off the pathogens. Once this pathogens or antigens enter the body, the antibodies will bind to those antigen to inhibit the antigen’s effects. Also, ImmunoSero is used for detecting autoimmune diseases or diseases involving the immune system.

Knowing these simple things about ImmunoSero can give us a greater understanding about our immune system especially how the antibodies work when one is sick. Now we can appreciate what the immune system is doing for us when we are sick. 🙂
