Immunology of the gut mucosa

This 3-D animation explores the role of the gut mucosa in the immune response, how it protects the individual against food-borne pathogens, and what happens when the system gets out of whack. It illuminates the inner workings of the gut mucosa as a defense mechanism for the body, to provide people with a greater appreciation for the complex processes involved, as well as a better understanding of why food-borne allergies occur.
