3 The Battle Between Us and the Bugs: What we can do We recognize them as something different not belonging inside the body Once recognized we try and kill them We have two systems of doing this: The Innate system The Adaptive system

6 Innate immune system Definition: cells and mechanisms that defend the host from infection by other organisms in a non-specific manner. Functions -Acting as physical and chemical barrier to infectious agents. -Recruiting immune cells to sites of infection, through production of cytokines -Activation of the complement cascade to identify bacteria, activate cells and promote clearance of dead cells or antibody complexes. T -Identification and removal of foreign substances (present in organs, tissues, blood and lymph) by WBCS. -Activation of the adaptive immune system through antigen presentation.
7 Cellular participants in the Immune responses Phagocytic cells (dendritic cells, macrophages, and granulocytes) Antigen presenting cells (dendritic cells, macrophages, B lymphocytes, helper T cells) Antibody producing cells (plasma cells) Cytotoxic cells (CTL, NK) Regulatory cells (APCs, helper T cells, regulatory T cells) Cells-in-waiting (memory B cells, monocytes) Chemical releasing cells (basophils, eosinophils, neutrophils; mast cells -histamine, cytokines; hepatocytes - complement proteins)
8 Cells of the Immune system
9 Adaptive immunity Lymphocytesare present, but few in number and notready to respond immediately (must wait until it binds to the antigen for which it is specific) Each lymphocyte can bind to only one antigen. Responses improvewith use (the lymphocyte population expands as an adaption to the first exposure to the antigen -> memory cells) Generally effective against bacterial pathogens, extracellular viruses, virusinfected cells and exotoxins Antibodies are the molecular component of the adaptive immune system Adaptive response can also assist the innate immune system Can help macrophages (TH 1 -helper lymphocytes) Can activate complement (antibody when it binds to antigen)
10 LYMPHOCYTES Responsible for the specific immune response. Represent 20-40% of circulating WBC in blood T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes and natural killer (NK) cells. T and B lymphocytes cannot be distinguished from each other morphologically. Once stimulated with antigen differentiate into effector cells or memory cells. [Plasma cells, T-helper cells, T-cytotoxic cells]. Memory cells are long-lived cells activated by a second encounter with antigen. Different lineages or stages of lymphocytes distinguished by their membrane CD molecules (Cluster of Differentiation (CD)
11 NK (natural killer) Cells Cytotoxic -granules in cytoplasm contain proteins such as perforin and proteases. On release near a baddie cell, perforin forms pores in the cell membrane of the target cell, through which the proteases enter, inducing either apoptosis or cell lysis. Lysing a virus-infected cell would release the virions Apoptosis destroys the virus
12 B lymphocytes Originate in the bone marrow, Mature in secondary lymphoid tissues Become activated in the spleen or nodes when their surface immunoglobulins bind to an antigen Differentiate either into plasma cells or memory B cells.
13 T-lymphocytes Formed in bone marrow, mature in the thymus. Make up 65 to 85% of the peripheral blood lymphocytes. Have markers on their surfaces (antigens) Start to express these markers during their maturation in the thymus. Also populate the peripheral lymphoid tissues Three types of T-cell: Cytotoxic T-cells(killer cells) destroy their targets by releasing perforin, which makes a hole in target cell wall, allowing H2O, ions to enter, and thereby killing it. Helper T cells, which regulate immune responses by releasing cytokines. Suppressor T-cells, which downregulate both humoral and cell-mediated immune responses. (These last two types are known as Regulatory T-cells)
14 Adaptive Immune System Def.: antibody and cell-mediated responses carried out by B and T cells. Functions: -Antibody production. -Activation of macrophages, natural killer cells (NK), antigen-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocytes. -Release of cytokines -Recognition of non-self antigens -Generation of responses tailored to maximally eliminate specific pathogens or pathogen infected cells. -Development of immune memory
15 Humoral Immunity Definition: production of antibodies in response to an antigen. Most effective against bacteria, bacterial toxins, and viruses prior to these entering cells. Antibodies(immunoglobulins): proteins produced by B-lymphocytes and plasma cells in response to an antigen and capable of reacting with that antigen. Antibodies work by:: 1. Opsonization ( rendering bacteria and other cells subject to phagocytosis) 2. MAC (membrane attack complex) Cytolysis 3. Cellular Cytotoxicity by NK Cells 4. Neutralization of Exotoxins 5. Neutralization of Viruses 6. Preventing Bacterial Adherence to Host Cells 7. Agglutination of Microorganisms 8. Immobilization of Bacteria and Protozoans.
16 Summary of Responses to Organisms Circulating antibodies inactivate or target organism Macrophage inflammation, interferon, cell activation Th, Tc, NK & B cells plasma cells antibodies
17 Types of Acquired Immunity
18 Passive and Active Immunization Passive Immunization Natural maternal serum/milk Artificial immune serum No immunological memory without T h cells. Active Immunization Natural infection Vaccination Live attenuated organisms inactivated organisms (dead) Cloned genes of microbiological antigens Subunit (purified microbial proteins) Synthetic peptides DNA Induction of adaptive immune response, with protection and memory.
19 Vaccine Immunoglobulin (IG) Anti-toxins Inactivated/subunit vaccine Live attenuated Types of Vaccine Examples Varicella Zoster IG Human Normal IG Hep B IG, Tetanus IG Diphtheria anti-toxin Botulinum anti-toxin Diphtheria/tetanus/acellular pertussis /inactivated polio/haemophilus influenzae b (DTaP/IPV/Hib) Meningococcal C (MenC), Pneumcoccal (PPV & PCV) Human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV) Hepatitis A vaccine (HAV) Hepatitis B vaccine (HBV), Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), Yellow fever
20 How vaccines work They fool the body into thinking it is infected with a bug so that next time when it sees the real thing it will be ready faster with a more powerful response They induce the adaptive system to remember, recognize, and kill baddies--viruses, bacteria, parasites or cancer cells Sometimes they get the body to do something different and better then if it were naturally infected
21 How Do Vaccines Work? skin lymph node antigen APC lymphocytes Vaccines deliver antigens to the skin or muscle. antigens are fragments of infectious agents The antigen is ingested by an antigen presenting cell (APC) The APC travels to a lymph node where it interacts with lymphocytes. Antigen=anti(body) gen(erating) Image: Sarah Keenihan
22 How Do Vaccines Work? In the lymph node, specific lymphocytes targeted at the antigen in the vaccine are produced - these cells persist as memory cells Then if an infection occurs, the memory cells are primed and ready to produce antibodies specific to the antigen. Image: Dorling Kindersley
23 Determinants of vaccine response
24 Determinants of secondary B cell response
25 Herd immunity Only applies to diseases which are passed from person to person For each disease a certain level of immunity in the population which protects thewhole population because the disease stops spreading in the community Provides indirect protection of unvaccinated as well as vaccinated individuals. May be the most important aspect of how vaccines work MMR given to infants protects pregnant women from rubella. Can eradicate disease even if some people remain susceptible

27 Antigen presenting cells: Cells that capture antigens by phagocytosis, process them into small peptides, display them at their surface and provide co-stimulation signals that help activate antigen-specifi c T cells. Antigen presenting cells include B cells, macrophages and dendritic cells, B lymphocytes: Cells that originate in the bone marrow, mature in secondary lymphoid tissues, become activated in the spleen/nodes when their surface immunoglobulins bind to an antigen and differentiate either in a (plasma cells) or in memory B cells. Carrier protein: A protein that is used as a template to which polysaccharide moieties are chemically conjugated to generate glycoconjugate vaccines. CD4+ T helper 1 lymphocytes: CD4+ T cells that upon activation differentiate into cells that mainly secrete IL-2, IFN-γ and TNF-β, exerting direct antimicrobial functions (viruses) and providing support to cytotoxic T cells and macrophages. CD4+ T helper 2 lymphocytes: CD4+ T cells that upon activation differentiate into cells that mainly secrete IL-4, IL-6, IL-6, IL- 10, IL-13, exerting direct antimicrobial functions (parasites) and providing support to B lymphocytes. Central memory T cells: Memory T cells trafficking through the lymph nodes, ready to proliferate and generate a high number of effector cells in response to specific microbial peptides.
28 Dendritic cells: Cells that constantly sample the surroundings for pathogens, detect dangers and initiate immune responses. Contact with a pathogen induces maturation and the expression of certain cell-surface molecules, greatly enhancing their ability to activate T cells. Effector memory T cells: Memory T cells patrolling through the body to detect specifi c microbial peptides and capable of an immediate cytotoxic function in case of recognition Germinal centers: Dynamic structure that develop in spleen/nodes in response to anantigenic stimulation. Contain antigen-specifi c B cells that proliferate and differentiate through thesupport provided by follicular dendritic cells and helper T cells. Immunoglobulin class switch recombination, affinity maturation, B cell selection and differentiation into plasma cells or memory B cells essentially occur in GCs. Regulatory T cells: T cells that upon activation differentiate into cells that express specifi c cytokines (IL-10, TGF-β/surface markers) and act to suppress the activation of the immune system, maintaining tolerance to self antigens..
29 T lymphocytes: Cells that originate in the thymus, mature in the periphery, become activated in the spleen/nodes if 1) their T cell receptor bind to an antigen presented by an MHC molecule and 2) they receive additional costimulation signals driving them to acquire killing or supporting functions. T-independent B cell responses: Differentiation pathway of B cells, mainly elicited by polysaccharides, that takes place in the spleen/nodes. Its hallmarks are to be rapid (days) but to elicit the transient(months) production of antibodies of low affi nity, without inducing immune memory. T-dependent B cell responses: Differentiation pathway of B cells elicited by protein antigens that recruits T and B cells into spleen/nodes. Its hallmarks are to be slow (weeks) but to elicit long-lasting (years) production of antibodies of high affinity, and immune memory. Toll-like receptors: Family of 10 receptors present at the surface of many immune cells. Recognize pathogens through conserved microbial patterns and activate innate immunity when detecting dangerr
