  6. Your presentation is so cute

  7. What is the need of basophil and mast cell if they only play role in inflammation, asthma which is bad for human?

  8. 한국어 번역 쩔어ㅋㅋㅋ 떡상ㅋㅋㅋㅋ 의학용어줄알았네 ㅋㅋㅋ

  9. Holy shit, so what you're saying is that we have little kamikaze agents inside our body called neutrophils and a sort of pearl harbour is happening inside us all?

  10. Nothing was said about how autoimmunity develops, nor, as he started out, showing how cancer cells that normally show up in the body on occasion, are attacked and removed from tissue. This kind of presentation is the standard medical school way of teaching, lots and lots of unnecessary facts, to shape the poor medical student's psyche to surrendering to "those in the know", regurgitating endless technical facts from this lab and that lab and every other lab, so finally the student will become an obedient zombie who will prescribe lab drugs that work on one of these isolated facts without reasoning further, because more reasoning, or reasoning on your own, will cause this incredible complexity to collapse, they'll have you think. Is it not simply better to seek or understand how certain plants, in and of their own capability, can destroy the problem in the 1st place? But of course that would defeat the whole purpose, which is to "train" the student, rather than teach him via curiosity and original thinking, because then he may decide the pharmaceutical approach is ridiculous, expensive, let alone with harmful side-effects they never speak of, let alone marginally as effective as God's natural formulas.

  11. Very confusing because I'm not a med student, but it's expanding my vocabulary! 😆

  12. Why do should everyone know the basics structure and function if the immune system? :v

  13. Thank you for this video especially that it is relevant right now. 👍

  14. you're using the word 'kill' but don't you mean neutralize? since a lot of antigens aren't living.

  15. There is a problem with the diagram of a CD4 cell in outlining the immune response to a bacterium in the lungs. It seems as if the Help T has immunoglobins on it surface. It there was not sound it looks like a B cell is binding to another B cell.

  16. The video was very helpful.thank you.
    But please I have a question,what's the difference between priming and clonal expansion?

  17. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
