1. List the major cells and tissues of the immune system and state their function in the immune response.
2. Explain, using examples, the processes of self / non-self-discrimination and disorders that arise as a result of dysfunction in self/non-self-recognition (autoimmunity).
3. Define, using examples, the terms 'innate' and 'specific' immunity and describe how the non-specific and specific arms of the immune system work together to effect an immune response.
4. Describe, using examples, the structure and function of antigen recognition molecules.
5. Define and give examples of the effects of immune 'dysfunction' such as hypersensitivity and immunodeficiency.
6. Outline the host responses to transplantation and be able to define xenotransplantation and discuss advantages and disadvantages of this process.
7. Describe, the typical mammalian immune system responses to proteins, bacteria, viruses, protozoa, helminths, fungi and other representative multi-cellular organisms.
