Parts of GI system: The GI system start with the mouth and teeth. This is where digestion begins. The food is the swallowed and taken to the stomach via the esophagus. In the stomach food is exposed to acid and mechanical grinding. Food then passes into the duodenum, jejunum and ileum where nutrients are absorbed. The liquid then enters the colon where water is absorbed and then out through the anus. ...Read more
If the immune system mediated an aggressive attack on the whole peripheral nervous system and killed the entire nerves of the body what are symptoms ?
Death: Although i just answered your question, important to understand that this would involve a rare progressive irreversible anaphylactic allergic reaction, and this really affects numerous organ systems. However, consider that there are chronic immune disorders that attack peripheral nerves (cidp), and nerves in central brain and spinal cord (ms). This is almost never an all or none situation. ...Read more

What are the symptoms and signs of the upper motor neuron lesion (cortex, internal capsule, brainstem, spinal cord) ?
Significance of this? Extrinsic compression on the thoracic esophagus by the aortic arch in what appears to be left main stem bronchus.
Odd: I assume you are reading the results of a radiology study (recent imaging procedure). The listed structures all lie in close proximity in the mediastinum, the most posterior of which is the esophagus. Unless you are having difficulty swallowing, a cough, or chest discomfort, I wouldn't worry much about this. You might want to confirm by reviewing the report with your doctor. ...Read more
Trick question: Are you studying immunology? The extra domain on ige indicates a unique role for the c2 domain in the interaction between ige and fcri. C2 reduces the off-rate of the ige/fcri, thereby resulting in a more stable complex. It is felt that the domain on igm co-contributes to the pentamic structure production. ...Read more
Innate and Adaptive: Innate immune cells such as neutrophils are our first-line defense and this type of immune system is found in most animals. Adaptive immune cells, such as T and B cells are able to become "memory" cells that allow us to build up immunity to viruses and bacteria that challenge us and try to attack us again. Vaccines help to boost our adaptive immunity so that we have a leg up on infections. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What's the difference between hypersensitivity and auto-immune disease, in the terms of immunology?
Very different: A hypersensitivity is generally what we call an allergic reaction. This is mostly to things you find in the environment, and most of the time is driven by an antibody called ige. An autoimmune disease is usually driven by igg antibody, and what is being attacked is something in the body that the immune system thinks is "foreign" and should be "dealt with" when it shouldn't be. ...Read more
Please clarify: Frankly, I have no idea what your post means. The vagus nerve is PART of the nervous system. It's part of the parasympathetic nervous system. Maybe if you posted what led you to ask the question I could figure out what you mean because right now I haven't got a clue. It's like asking, "Which part of the car is control by 75% of the windshield?" ...Read more
