OVERVIEW OF IMMUNE INTERACTIONS
Although the immune system can be described in terms of innate, antibody-mediated, and cell-mediated immunity, these catego-ries are artificial divisions used to emphasize particular aspects of immunity. In actuality, there is only one immune system, but its responses often involve components of more than one type of immunity. For example, although adaptive immunity can recognize and remember specific antigens, once recognition has occurred the antigen is destroyed with the help of many innate immunity activities, including inflammation and phagocytosis (figure 14.18; see table 14.1).
