Review: I -The organisation and functioning of the immune system: particular features of the rabbit
This article summarises the general organisation of immune system, and the origins of its cells and their roles. The serous aspects of the immune response, innate, specific, humoral cell mediated, are briefly described. The immune response of the intestinal mucosa is presented with the inductive and effector sites. The regulatory pathways of the immune response and the techniques that can be used to evaluate the immune status of an animal are also presented.
