Overview / Abstract:

Learning Objectives:
Review the components of the immune system that protect the pediatric patient including B and T lymphocytes, natural killer cells as well and the interchange between antigens and antibodies.
Describe the impact that diseases and infections such as DiGeorge and Wiskott -Aldrich have on the functioning of the immune system as well as immunglobulins such as IgG, and IgE.
Appreciate the role of complements (and why these lab values are so important!) and their role in the constant creating a defense in diseases such as anaphylaxis, immunodeficiencies, systemic lupus erythematosus and HIV.
