  1. Immunology

    Immunology is a branch of biomedical science that covers the study of all aspects of the immune system in all organisms. It deals with the physiological functioning of the immune system in states of both health and diseases; malfunctions of the immune system in immunological disorders; the physical, chemical and physiological characteristics of the components of the immune system in vitro, in situ, and in vivo. Immunology has applications in several disciplines of science, and as such is further divided. Even before the concept of immunity was developed, numerous early physicians characterized organs that would later prove to be part of the immune system. The key primary lymphoid organs of the immune system are the thymus and bone marrow, and secondary lymphatic tissues such as spleen, tonsils, lymph vessels, lymph nodes, adenoids, and skin and liver. When health conditions warrant, immune system organs including the thymus, spleen, portions of bone marrow, lymph nodes and secondary lymphatic tissues can be surgically excised for examination while patients are still alive.

Examples of Immunology in a Sentence

  1. Bill Miller:

    This theory accepts that the Darwinism that is fundamentally based on entire organisms in competition with each other is incomplete, the real narrative that really counts is unseen to our eyes. You have two moose locking horns over a female. It seems like that is the full depiction of the story of evolution, right there. It’s really just a side show. The real narrative is immunology, the cellular dynamics within the organisms, the collaborative relationships between all of our cells. These cells have their own cognitive capacity, with the linkages and partnerships between microbes.

  2. Peter Openshaw:

    Immunology, like other cutting-edge areas of biomedical science, is a global discipline and one in which the UK excels, we currently rank first amongst the G7 nations for our research in immunity and infectious disease and are now starting to reap the benefits of our efforts, with new treatments for previously incurable diseases emerging after decades of investment and collaboration in immunological research.

  3. Pascal Soriot:

    (Bohen's) impressive expertise in key areas of our exciting pipeline, including oncology and immunology, will further strengthen and accelerate the delivery of new medicines for patients.

  4. Eric Dickson:

    Although the studies were done with 3 and 4-week second vaccinations, it is likely based on our knowledge of immunology that getting the second shot a few weeks late will not make any difference, there is a chance that people will not get the second vaccination, but I would rather have them get one than none.

  5. Doug Brown:

    This is positive news as it shows that just one dose of this vaccine generates good levels of immunity and that this protection does not seem to wane in the shorter term, in immunology terms, this finding is not unexpected as we know that some other vaccines confer better immunity when the doses are more spread out. Although further information is required to confirm these findings for older age groups, overall this new research should provide reassurance around the UK's decision to offer the two doses of this vaccine 12 weeks apart.
