Welcome to the CoursePlus Web site for PRINCIPLES OF IMMUNOLOGY II (260.612.01), a course offered by the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Introduces biological concepts of immunology; molecular nature of antigens; molecular basis for antibody and T-cell receptor structure and diversity; complement; hypersensitivity reactions; cellular basis for the immune response; cell-mediated immunity; adhesion molecules and coreceptors cell activation; cytokines and other soluble mediators; major histocompatibility complex (MHC) antigens; tumor immunology; transplantation immunobiology; mechanisms of resistance to microorganisms; tolerance; autoimmunity; and immuno-deficiency.
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
- Define the principles of autoimmunity and transplantation
- Define the basis underlying primary and acquired immune deficiencies
- Define the immune mechanisms employed to combat bacterial, viral and parasitic infections
- Define the mechanisms that regulate allergy and hypersensitivity
- Define the mechanisms for immunization
