The innate immune system is one of the two main immunity strategies found in vertebrates the other being the adaptive immune system. The innate immune system is an older evolutionary defense strategy, relatively speaking, and is the dominant immune system response found in plants , fungi , insects , and primitive multicellular organisms. Anatomical barriers include physical, chemical and biological barriers.
What happen if foreign invader attack the body to the second time in innate immunity? How innate immunity will response? An Ag can specifically bind to an Ab molecule. An Ag i. The term Ag, is used for a molecule i. Therefore, all immunogens are considered as Ag, but not all Ags are immunogens.

The human immune system is comprised of two distinct functional parts: 1 innate and 2 adaptive. These two components have different types of recognition receptors and differ in the speed in which they respond to a potential threat to the host Fig. Cells of the innate immune system, including macrophages and dendritic cells DCs , use pattern recognition receptors encoded directly by the germ line DNA, respond to biochemical structures commonly shared by a variety of different pathogens, and elicit a rapid response against these pathogens, although no lasting immunity is generated. In contrast, cells of the adaptive immune system, T and B lymphocytes, bear specific antigen receptors encoded by rearranged genes, and in comparison to the innate response, adaptive immunity develops more slowly.
Defense against microbes is mediated by the early reactions of innate immunity and the later responses of adaptive immunity. Figure 1, 2; Table 1. Innate immunity also called natural or native immunity provides the early line of defense against microbes.
Clinical and Basic Immunodermatology pp Cite as. The skin immune system is the complex network of cells that are able to mount an immune response in the skin. The immune response can be divided into innate and adaptive arms. This is highly relevant to both systemic immunity, as well as immunity in the skin. The innate immune system responds rapidly to microbial insults, but is thought to have no memory or specificity. The adaptive immune system, composed of B lymphocytes and T lymphocytes, requires more time to respond to a threatening challenge to the host, but is responsible for long-lasting memory and specificity, and the development of an effector pool of lymphocytes for humoral or cell mediated immunity. Virtually all cells that reside in the skin play some role in the function of the skin immune system.
Metrics details. Beyond structural and chemical barriers to pathogens, the immune system has two fundamental lines of defense: innate immunity and adaptive immunity. Innate immunity is the first immunological mechanism for fighting against an intruding pathogen. It is a rapid immune response, initiated within minutes or hours after aggression, that has no immunologic memory. Adaptive immunity, on the other hand, is antigen-dependent and antigen-specific; it has the capacity for memory, which enables the host to mount a more rapid and efficient immune response upon subsequent exposure to the antigen. There is a great deal of synergy between the adaptive immune system and its innate counterpart, and defects in either system can provoke illness or disease, such as inappropriate inflammation, autoimmune diseases, immunodeficiency disorders and hypersensitivity reactions.
