Fundamentals of Immunology, Course 4: Dueling with the Dark Side, covers the constant battle between your immune system threats to your health. The first two lectures discuss viral and cellular pathogens, focusing on specific tactics they use to deflect immune attack. This is followed by a cheerier look at how the medical community uses and develops vaccines and other immune-based therapies. The last lectures cover immune deficiencies, the breakdown of immune prevention of cancer and finally some advances in supporting and using immune response to cure cancer.
