In the human body which system functions primarily to defend the body against the disease?
It protects your immune system and Mucus collects bacteria and prevents it from entering your blood stream. It is carried away by your lymphatic system. It is one of the many …first line immune defenses that body uses to fight disease. Drugs that limit mucus formation keep this defense mechanism from working and put more burden on the other natural defenses.
Firstly, the blood contains cells called B-lymphocytes which produce antibodies. These antibodies recognize antigens, causing agglutination of disease-causing bacteria and thu…s ensure the digestion of these bacteria. Secondly, the blood contains many cells such as neutrophils, basophils and eosinophils which are involved in the inflammatory response, defending the body against bacteria, parasites and other foreign particles whenever there is a cut in the skin. Lastly, the blood contains platelets and clotting factors which cause blood clotting at the site of an open wound. This physically covers the wound and thus prevents the bacteria from having free and easy access to the body.
Well, there is white blood cells that are just like red blood cells but fight diseases and bacteria, and also there is cells that helps the blood clot so the diseases don't sp…read any further ofcourse there is some people that do not have those cells, and we have the immune system that helps us a lot with diseases and bacteria.
It is where your blood flows throughout your body. It is connected to your heart. To keep the blood flow moving throughout the body, and provide us with nutrients and dispose …of any toxins or wastes. The circulatory system helps the body function by having oxygen rich blood flow through the body. Also delivering oxygen rich blood to the heart so your heart can keep pumping because it has oxygen rich blood in it.
First they detect a infection in an area of the body. Then they wrap themselves around the microbe and kind of explode.
It uses white blood cells to attack and destroy intruders. It also expels harmful substances through the processes of vomitting and diarrhea. Another way is it heats up the bo…dy through a fever to make the white blood cells more efficient and to throw off the pathogens living conditions, as they most often live most comfortably at normal body temperature.
Sickle Cell Disease, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDs), Gonorrhoea and Haemophilia are some diseases that the body cannot defend itself against. :D
In short: 1. produce antibodies which attach to the antigens of the pathogen (a micro organism that can cause disease) 2. white blood cells engulf (or digest) the pathogen 3. …produce antitoxins to counter the toxins broduced by the invading bacteria Source: GCSE Science
by sending out white blood cells around the body and killing your bad bits(microbes).
The central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS) work together to monitor, coordinate and control the activities of the whole body. The PNS picks up in…formation from outside and inside the body, passes them on to the CNS where they are processed and interpreted, and carries instructions from the CNS to the different parts of the body to enable the body to react to stimuli.
the immune system helps protect the body inside and outside using red blood cells and white blood cells it helps attack the diseases and defends your body from and any other t…hing that may be harmful
Integumentary System: (includes hair, skin and nails) forms the external body covering and protects deeper tissues from injury. Synthesizes vitamin d, and houses cutaneous (pa…in, pressure ect) receptors and sweat and oil glands Skeletal System: (includes bones and joints) protects and supports body organs, and provides a framework the muscles use to cause movement. Blood cells are formed within bones. Bones store minerals Muscular System: (includes skeletal muscles) allows manipulation of the environment, locomotion, and facial expression. Maintains posture, and produces heat Nervous System: (includes brain, spinal cord and nerves) as the fast-acting control system of the body, it responds to internal and external changes by activating appropriate muscles and glands. Endocrine System: (includes pineal gland, thyroid gland, pituitary gland, thymus, adrenal gland, pancreas, ovary and testis) glands secrete hormones that regulate processes such as growth, reproduction, and nutrient use (metabolism) by body cells Cardiovascular System: (includes heart and blood vessels) blood vessels transport blood, which carries oxygen, carbon dioxide, nutrients, wastes ect. The heart pumps blood Lymphatic System/Immunity: (includes red bone marrow, thymus, lymphatic vessels, thoracic duct, spleen and lymph nodes) picks up fluid leaked from blood vessels and returns it to blood. Disposes of debris in the lymphatic stream. Houses white blood cells (lymphocytes) involved in immunity. The immune response mounts the attack against foreign substances within the body Respiratory System: (includes nasal cavity, pharynx, larynx, trachea, lungs and bronchus) keeps blood constantly supplied with oxygen and removes carbon dioxide. The gaseous exchanges occur through the walls of the air sacs of the lungs Digestive System: (includes oral cavity, esophagus, liver, stomach, sml intestine, lrg intestine, rectum and anus) breaks down food into absorbable units that enter the body for distribution to body cells. Indigestible foodstuffs are eliminated as feces Urinary System: (includes kidneys, ureter, urinary bladder and urethra) eliminates nitrogenous wastes from the body. Regulates water, electrolyte and acid-base balance of blood Reproductive System: (Female includes mammary glands, ovary,uterus,uterine tube and vagina. Male includes prostate gland, penis,testis,scrotum and ductus deferens) overall function in production of offspring. Testes produce sperm and male sex hormone, and male ducts and glands aid in delivery of sperm to the female reproductive tract. Ovaries produce eggs and female sex hormones. The remaining female structures serve as sites for fertilization and development of the fetus. Mammary glands of female breasts produce milk to nourish the new born.
From your nose, it will trap the dusty and virus particles that will go inside your nose.
The immune system
its role in defending your body against disease is to find and "eat" (consume i guess) bacteria, viruses, and dead or injured body cells
The human body has several main functions that are vital. Functionsthat are considered vital to living are the lungs, the brain, andthe heart. Most of the other functions in t…he body are related tothe main functions.
