In brief: Immune system part.
Adaptive immunity is the part of our immune system that allows us to recognize new pathogens, attack and eliminate them, and remember when they return.
It is mediated by blood cells called lymphocytes, which produce antibodies to these pathogens. It is essential to our health, allows vaccinations to work, and is attacked by hiv, the virus that causes aids.
