  • She researches how immune responses of the gut are started as a result of infection and/or inflammation.

innate immune

Pronunciation American British Australian Indian
E.g.
  • It first initiates an innate immune response, which then causes the activation of the adaptive immune response.
  • Similarly, the adjuvant component of vaccines plays an essential role in the activation of the innate immune system.

Pronunciation American British Australian Indian
E.g.
  • Europe and the rest of East Asia were not immune either.

immune function

Pronunciation American British Australian Indian
E.g.
  • Side effects are more common and potentially more severe in those with poor immune function.
  • More research also supported that DPP-4 inhibition would not cause compromised immune function.
  • This is because trauma exposure can disrupt the HPA axis, thus altering peripheral immune function.
