Can the immune system attack directly peripheral nervous system go beyond mylein sheath and destroy the whole of the nerve?

Can the immune system attack directly  peripheral nervous system go beyond mylein sheath and destroy the whole of the nerve?

Neuropathy: Yes. Immune mediated neuropathies can occur where the primary target is the myelin and the process is so severe that axonal injury (nerve core) can occur. Immune response primarily directed to the axon (nerve core) cam also occur and are typically more severe and less likely to recover from. Secondary myelin injury always occurs in this type of axonal injury. ...Read more

Receptor (Definition)

An organ, cell or molecule that accepts an outside signal and causes an internal change. Eyes receive light, touch receptors send messages to the brain when stimulated by pressure and estrogen receptors bind Estradiol causing responses of normal breast, ovary and uterus cells to rising and falling levels of the female steroid hormones. Most of the time "receptor" refers to one ...Read more

If the immune system mediated an aggressive attack on the whole peripheral nervous system and killed the entire nerves of the body are you paralyzed?

If the immune system mediated an aggressive attack on the whole peripheral nervous system and killed the entire nerves of the body are you paralyzed?

Neuropathy: Interesting question, autoimmune neurological peripheral disorders can be aggressive and progress fast but usually start with tingling and loss of sensation before paralysis. Are you asking about a specific disorder or a hypothetical question? ...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

If the immune system can aggressively attack and kill all peripheral nerves could the human body function with just the central nervous system?

If the immune system can aggressively attack and kill all peripheral nerves could the human body function with just the central nervous system?

No: The central nervous system relates to the brain and spinal cord. To reach the targets (skin, muscles, blood vessels, etc) you need the peripheral nervous system. You would be paralyzed and die without it. ...Read more

Can you compare the somatic nervous system with the autonomic nervous system?

Can you compare the somatic nervous system with the autonomic nervous system?

Nervous system: somatic nervous system is under your control, example making given him smoking up and down. Autonomic nervous system not to not under voluntary control, example your heart rate and blood pressure are dramatically controlled depending on the needs of the body, your interest and will move by peristalsis, movement of the bowels ...Read more

How do the innate and adaptive immune system interrelate?

Very complicated: Generally speaking, the innate immune system is the part of the immune system that you are born with, while the adaptive immune system is developed over time and with exposure to infection. While they are separate entities, they certainly work together in a complimentary fashion to fight various infections. Good question! ...Read more

What happens if the peripheral nerves are targeted in a severe immune response and kill the peripheral nervous system ? Does the body shut down ?

What happens if the peripheral nerves are targeted in a severe immune response and kill the peripheral nervous system ? Does the body shut down ?

Depends on the nerve: What happens depends on the type of nerve affected by the immune response. If sensory nerves are affected there can be loss of sensation; if motor nerves are affected there can be weakness or paralysis. One example of this is guillain barre syndrome. Sometimes the autonomic nervous system is also affected leading to changes in pulse and blood pressure. ...Read more

In a very aggressive autoimmune response can the immune system attack and kill the whole of the peripheral nervous system and what's this diagnosed as?

See below: There are several different autoimmune diseases that can cause a peripheral neuropathy such as sjogren's and cidp. There are others but without knowing more of your history it is hard to say what it could be. ...Read more

How can the central and peripheral nervous systems differ in structure?

How can the central and peripheral nervous systems differ in structure?

OK: Central nervous system - brain & spinal cord Peripheral nervous system - all the nerves that come out from the brain and spinal cord. Within the peripheral nervous system you have 'somatic' and 'visceral' nervous systems. Somatic refers to muscle, skeleton, skin. Visceral refers to internal organs. In a nutshell! ...Read more
