Inmune System

The biological integrity of individuals must be permanently defended against possible external aggressions, especially of pathogenic microorganisms that constantly challenge our health.

For this, each organism has natural barriers of isolation, such as skin and mucous membranes and an immune system that is specialized in identifying and destroying everything that is foreign and even internal that deteriorates.

The immune system constitutes a complex net of cells and molecules distributed throughout the organism between which multiple functional interactions are established that determine their biological capacity

This biological capacity is defined by the defensive ability of the elements of the immune system to protect against external agents, mainly of an infectious nature, and to tumor mutations of the own cells.
