Innate immunity Nonspecific host defenses that exist prior to exposure to an antigen and involve anatomic, physiologic, endocytic and phagocytic, and inflammatory mechanisms
Adaptive immunity Host defenses that are mediated by B and T cells following exposure to antigen and that exhibit specificity, diversity, memory, and self-nonself recognition.
