Diversity of immune responses (impact of age, sex, pregnancy, co-morbidities, etc.)
The " Diversity of immune responses (impact of age, sex, pregnancy, co-morbidities, etc.)" course is 1 of 18 included in the Introduction to Immuno-Safety Science module.
This course is led by Dr. April Masters at Boehringer Ingelheim.
1. Describe how various inherent factors affect the immune system (e.g. hormones, sex, age, etc.)
2. Describe how additional factors (e.g. disease-specific, drug interactions, etc.) can affect the immune response
3. In drug development, explain how this makes assessing the immunosafety challenging
4. Briefly comment on personalized medicine and evaluation of individuals' "immune profile"
