*The new specification requires students to know the following;
Students should be able to describe the non-specific defence systems of the human body against pathogens, including the:
• skin
• nose
• trachea and bronchi
• stomach.
Students should be able to explain the role of the immune system in the defence against disease. If a pathogen enters the body the immune system tries to destroy the pathogen.
White blood cells help to defend against pathogens by:
• phagocytosis
• antibody production
• antitoxin production.
