    Immunocompromised

     

    Human bodies are equipped with an immune system that fights infection as it produces chemicals and releases cells called macrophages that swallow these foreign organisms. But every person does not have a strong immune system and such people’s immune system is vulnerable to infection or disease. Such people are referred as immunocompromised in this news. In this regard, let us understand about our immune system, how does it works and how the human body fights back when it encounters any foreign body capable of causing disease.
