Course Objective To teach the immune system, which one of the 3 important structures of the homeostasis? The targets of teach are how the immune system works with system and organs collectively in balance, the disorders which appear when the immune system works unbalanced, and immune assay techniques and the consequences of the results of immune assay.
Course Content Macroscopic (anatomy) and microscopic (histology) structure and physiological mechanisms of immune system. How immune system affect other system and organs. How the immune system was managed by the body components. Immune system which works high sensitive or low sensitive, clinical importance of the both situation, measurement of immune response and importance of the results behalf of patient and/or clinician.
