The Adaptive Immune Response refers to the aspects of the host immune response which depend on the generation of proteins which are highly specific to particular microbial antigenic moieties. Evolutionarily, Adaptive Immunity is a relatively new part of the immune system and appears first in jawed fish. Cytokines are soluble glycoproteins that are ubiquitously produced by immune and other cells. cytokines mediate functions via autocrine and paracrine manner. However, cytokines can initiate functional responses at low concentrations, which could cause subtle brain effects. The chapter discusses the molecular basis for behavioral.

T Cell-Mediated Immune Responses. The primary cells that control the adaptive immune response are the lymphocytes, the T and B cells. T cells are particularly important, as they not only control a multitude of immune responses directly, but also control B cell immune responses in many cases as well.

By providing information on the overall effect of systemically targeting a given metabolic pathway, a “retrospective” analysis can provide a human experimental model of how systemic and cellular metabolism integrate to have an impact on immune cells, as well as a molecular basis for the repositioning of “old” drugs as by:   The immune system comprises both innate and adaptive immune responses.

Innate immunity occurs naturally because of genetic factors or physiology; it is not induced by infection or vaccination but works to reduce the workload for the adaptive immune response.
