    NK cells and immunity

    This is about NK cells and immune systems in our body.

    What is immune system?

  • The immune system is a system of many biological structures and processes within an organism that protects against diseases. As a result, our body protects itself against diseases through the immune system.
    There are two types of immune systems in our body, innate immunity which is also known as in-born immunity system and adaptive immunity, also known as the acquired immune system. The innate immunity includes NK cells, skin, macrophages, granulocytes, and monocytes.

    What is NK cell?

  • NK cells are a component of the innate immune system which is produced in bone marrow and are a type of lymphocyte (a white blood cell). There are two important roles of NK cells, which are the immune surveillance of cancer and recognition of viral-infections. Cytokines, such as interferon, which are produced by activated NK cells, activate CTL and helper T-cells responses. Cytokines also controls adaptive immune response and balances the immune system. Therefore, NK cell can be an important indicator to maintain and protect your health.

    Nk cell and immunity

  • In our body, there are more than 5,000 abnormal cells such as cancer cells, growing and dying every day. NK cell is the only cell that recognizes and attacks cancer cells, which can inhibit from the proliferation of cancer cells and prevent from recurrence. The importance of NK Cells and the correlation between them and cancer has been widely documented since early 1980. After many experiments, it is proved that the activity of NK cell controls the antitumor immunity rather than the number of NK cells. As a result, research about NK cell activity is being actively conducted.
