Example sentences for: immune

How can you use “immune” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Epidemiologically, HLA genotype partially accounts for inter-patient variation in disease severity or progression rates for such long-term viral infections as HIV, human T-cell lymphotropic virus, type 1 (HTLV-1), and hepatitis B and C [ 5 6 7 8 9 ] . Such associations can lead to mechanistic studies to test hypotheses about the immunologic basis of these associations [ 10 11 ] and could, in principle, be used to help predict individual prognoses [ 12 13 ] . At least one clinical study has shown that HLA genotype affects the immune response to a candidate HIV vaccine [ 14 ] . Vaccine designers have begun to take account of the HLA genotypes of potential recipients in choosing antigens for inclusion in a vaccine [ 15 ] , and it has been suggested that HLA genotype be considered in designing samples for inclusion in epidemiologic studies of anti-HIV immune response [ 12 ] . In evolutionary biology, the possibility that HLA heterozygotes are more resistant to infectious diseases is the basis for a leading hypothesis to explain the unparalleled diversity of HLA genes (and MHC genes in other vertebrates) and the maintenance of this diversity over long periods of evolutionary time [ 16 ] .

  • The adaptive immune response has nearly infinite flexibility: the T and B lymphocytes of the acquired immune system can rearrange the elements of their immunoglobulin and T-cell receptor genes to create billions of clones with distinct antigen receptors.

  • Immune dysregulation appears to play a key pathogenic role, as circulating autoantibodies are common in patients with certain JRA clinical subtypes [ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 ] . Two recent studies have shown a highly significant association between early-onset pauciarticular JRA and circulating antibodies to the 43-kDa nuclear protein DEK [ 8 9 ] . Although circulating DEK antibodies have subsequently been found in children and adults with other autoimmune diseases [ 10 11 ] , these two studies did reveal that children with JRA are significantly more likely to have anti-DEK antibodies than are children without rheumatic disease.

  • The Victorious Immune System: Evolutionary biologists speculate that a hypersensitive immune system was needed back when parasites were ubiquitous and deadly.

  • An active immune reaction with GC formation occurs in the inflamed SM in AS.
